About Us

Southwest Manufactured Housing, Inc. opened in April, 1985 at its present location. For over 30 years, Southwest Homes has been owned and operated by Preston "Lee" Duplichan Jr. A southwest Louisiana native, Lee has appreciated the people and the culture of this area all of his life. Lee was born in Kinder, LA--moved to Sulphur and after graduating from McNeese State University, settled in Lake Charles to live and raise his family. Lee married a local girl and they have one daughter who also graduated McNeese State University.

The community of SWLA is rich in its culture, its people are hardworking and demand only to be treated honestly, truthfully and fairly.

Lee Duplichan built his business on those same principles. His business philosophy is to treat customers like family and when you do something, do it right.

Southwest Homes' sales team has over 100 years of experience in finding the right home at the right price for every homeowner's need. Being local and independent means you have to treat people with integrity, build trust and really be committed to helping people.

We invite you to come by our sales center and see why other homeowners for over 30 years have trusted Southwest Homes when they are purchasing their new home.
