Build Local. Build Better.
Build with a Member.

Welcome to the Acadian Home Builders Association’s web site. AHBA has a long history and outstanding reputation in the Acadiana community. Our annual events – The Original Home, Garden & Lifestyle Show, Parade of Homes and Home for the Holidays – are attended by thousands each year and allow us to continue our mission of promoting professionalism and ethical business practices in the home building industry while providing quality housing that creates value for the homeowner and the community.

When you are looking to build or buy a new home, it is important to ensure the services you require are performed by an expert who is familiar with the special building needs of our area and here to stay long after your project is finished. All builder members of AHBA have businesses based in Acadiana, ensuring they can be easily reached years down the road if you have a question about your home.

AHBA builders are licensed by the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors, and as such, they have passed a test certifying that they are knowledgeable about all the elements of building a home. Each year, builders must earn six hours of continuing education credits to maintain their understanding of the industry as well as their license. They do so by attending classes on building issues and techniques which are offered to them by AHBA and other Louisiana home builder associations.

Builder members of AHBA are also required to carry workman’s compensation insurance as well as general liability, which protects you if any unfortunate incident should happen on your project.

Local builders use local suppliers for their materials and hire subcontractors who are also based in Acadiana. This means dollars spent in our community stay in our community, and jobs are created for our neighbors. Also, building with local companies who construct only a few houses per year ensures higher quality, attention to detail, and more personal service.

Home for the Holidays


Home for the Holidays is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and annual project of the Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA) and KATC-TV 3. Each year, the builder and associate members of AHBA build a brand new, state-of-the-art home which is given away in a raffle drawing right before Christmas. Proceeds from raffle ticket sales are dedicated to local, shelter-related charities including Lafayette Habitat for Humanity, Faith House, Healing House, and St. Michael’s Center for Veterans. So far, AHBA and KATC have been able to donate over $1.2 Million to these charities since the project’s conception in 2005.
