What they're saying about E. Jacob Construction

“the whole team was very patient, informative, and responsive”

While searching for a home, the number one thing that caught my attention about Fakouri Construction was the option of being able to purchase a home at an affordable price without having to sacrifice luxury or quality. The whole team was very patient, informative, and responsive to all of my questions and individual needs. I was also impressed with the services that I received after my home purchase was made. Most of all, they made the entire home buying process very simple from locating a lot to the final purchase.

“made every effort to communicate with me and deliver to my expectations”
My Agent Carla Mazique and I looked at several properties surrounding Baton Rouge.  The reason I chose Plaquemine was its close proximity to Baton Rouge and my ability to qualify for a Rural Development Loan.  The reason I chose Mr. FaKouri and Iberville Trace Subdivision was the quality of craftsmenship for the price per square footage.  Iberville Trace is a French Acadian Style Neighborhood. After looking at similar neighborhoods in Port Allen, Prarieville, Gonzales, and Denham Springs, there was no other builder that provided the same quality for the price.  What really set Mr. FaKouri apart from the competition is that Mr. Fakouri builds Solid Brick Houses with Hardiplank Siding only as an accent wall which gives a custom feel with low maintenance.  Every house also has a wood burning fireplace and hard wood stain grade cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms as standard features.

As a first time home buyer, Mr. FaKouri and his team made every effort to communicate with me and deliver to my expectations.  The best part about building a home was the ability to personalize to my tastes.  The first thing that Mr. FaKouri said was that upgrades aren’t as important as square footage.  I agreed but there are a few great ideas that allowed me to upgrade my home without spending as much as you might expect.  Recessed Lighting really light up a room.  Granite tile countertops give the look of granite without the cost of solid surface countertops. An oversized fireplace mantle upgrade isn’t as expensive as you might think.  And personalizing the front fascade of my home was a fun way to not look like everyone else in the neighborhood.

Building or buying a home can be a very exciting yet stressful experience. The bottom line is that Mr. FaKouri builds a qualtiy home for an affordable price.  And you can have confidence that he really does guarantee his work and put his money where his mouth is.

“thank you for the terrific job”
Dear Mr. Fakouri (Fuzzy),

My wife and I just wanted to write to thank you for the terrific job you and your people did on the garage to “mother-in-law suite” conversion you did for us.

You took the time to listen to us and incorporate all the items we said we wanted in the final plan. You also very quickly incorporated the change we requested to include a washer and dryer, and adapted it perfectly to the space we had.

Your workmen were excellent and were always courteous to us even if we just met in passing. If we had a question they took the time to explain it to us and even to point out the features in the partly completed unit. If there was a decision to be made that would affect the final outcome they were quick to point it out.

When there was an issue during the construction process, you addressed it quickly and to our satisfaction.

It was not until we began moving in that we completely appreciated how well you did. The rooms, which are for our adult autistic son, made a big impression on him. When he first viewed the original dark dank garage that we wanted to renovate and we told him it was going to be his room, he said “No way.” When we showed him the bright, airy, comfortable rooms you have turned it into, he said “Most impressive”; which we consider high praise.

Thank you again, and if we can ever be of assistance in recommending your work, please let us know.


-Bill, Chris and Robert D.
