The Melancon Family

Phil Melancon, President, established this company because of his interest in architectural design and attentiveness to detail.  Phil prides himself on building homes designed for structural integrity, energy efficiency and stresses the efficient use of space for creating the perfect balance for your dream home.


Phil is a member and serves on the Board of Directors of the Acadian Homebuilder’s Association. He was selected by his peers and awarded as the "2011 Builder of the Year".  He was also the builder for the “2011 Home for the Holidays”, an annual program in which a new home is built and raffled with proceeds benefiting local shelter related charities.  Additionally, Greatwood Homes is a yearly participant in the Acadian Homebuilder's Parade of Homes held each spring.
