History and LegacyWhere are We Now?

Founded in 1958 by the late Charlie Kornman, Sunrise Homes was born out of modest family resources — but no matter how much success we’ve seen over the years, our employees today still honor our founder’s vision to “always provide the best possible housing value” to families in southeast Louisiana and Mississippi. Families have always been, and always will be, at the heart of what we do. More than 10,000 homes later, Sunrise Homes is still family-owned and family-focused. In fact, we build homes for many third generation Sunrise homeowner families today. Not only that, we’ve worked with the same subcontractors for 30 years, and many of our employees who have been with us for over 25 years even live in their own Sunrise homes. Today, our vision is still forward-thinking, and high-quality homes at affordable prices remain our promise. By embodying the same values that we did 6 decades ago, from livability and community, to knowledge and quality, we have perfected our promise to every homeowner we work with, allowing them to experience the difference time and time again. When you work with us, you know that you won’t only get the highest-quality home, but the highest-quality care too. Compassion is what our company was founded on, and what our leader wanted most for the future of Sunrise Homes.For over 60 years, Sunrise Homes has adapted to changing times, but much endures at its core. Still a closely held private company, in many respects Sunrise is an extended family. Larry Kornman’s open door policy invites anyone to walk down the hall and visit. Off-the-cuff birthday celebrations, annual company crawfish boils, and holiday parties are intended to make Sunrise both a place to do good work, and a place of lasting friendships. The vision is always forward. High quality homes at affordable prices remains the ultimate goal.Sunrise Homes is continuing to set the tone for housing industry. By perfecting the design and construction of a wide selection of livable homes. Sunrise is proud to showcase a variety of decorated models to help home-buyers visualize themselves and their families the comforts and quality of a new Sunrise home.
