Twenty years in the field speaks volumes for a local business. 250 beautiful homes standing in various neighborhoods throughout Baton Rouge, Ascension Parish, and Zachary packs even more of a punch. 
Daryl May Construction has both these assets, entwined neatly with a unique, people-friendly attitude. Take a drive through Southdowns or the Garden District, Bocage or Old Goodwood, and gaze upon the architectural portfolio of Daryl May—his works range from professional redesign and repair to custom home construction and even entire neighborhoods erected by Daryl and his experienced crew. 
An alumnus of Catholic High School, Daryl later graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in 1987. He established Daryl May Construction in 1994 and today operates with a team of professional workers to craft well-regarded homes and renovations all over the area. It’s an excellence you can simply go see for yourself.
So how will you know when you’re looking at a Daryl May home? One bold hallmark is architectural correctness. When renovating, Daryl blends his own work to the existing structure, seamlessly weaving the old and new. Thanks to that same deft touch, his custom-built homes rise up in harmony with the surrounding neighborhood.
In some cases, the whole neighborhood is a Daryl May product in itself. Notable subdivisions Daryl has built in Baton Rouge are Province at Moss Side, Majestic Oaks, Old Goodwood, Hundred Oaks, Santa Maria, and University Club. Along with Richard Carmouche, Daryl developed the 143-lot residential neighborhood Oaks on the Bluff, located on Bluff Road in Geismar. He also developed Plantation Creek in Prairieville, which totals 71 residential lots.
Daryl’s work has been profiled in multiple publications, including House & HomeSage, and the featured homes section of The Advocate. Daryl himself graced the cover of Builder+Architect.
When choosing Daryl May, customers can expect the team to complete projects on time and within budget, and the results are pristine.


In 2014, Architect Magazine extended the Rose Award for Best Residential Home Design to Cockfield-Jackson Architecture firm; Daryl was the builder on the celebrated home.
