ur Louisiana Idea House is just a few months old, but it's built of aged cypress, copper, and brick. These materials give strength and permanence to every aspect of the design by architect Ben Patterson. Its brick archways, columns, and stucco exterior recall some of the state's time-honored building traditions. With 4,544 square feet of living areas, Emerson Hill easily accommodates the activities of today's busy family.
Squire Creek, a residential community in Choudrant (near Ruston) is home to Emerson Hill. For years, it has been James Davison's dream to give the growing area its own golf club surrounded by beautiful wooded home sites. Bringing the project to life has been a family affair, with James; wife Dianne; daughter Catherine; and sons Steve, Mark, Todd, and Jim involved in all aspects of the development.
