Jeb Breithaupt, B. Arch., MBA, and the firm bearing his name, are endpoints of a non-traditional career path. During his high school years, where his focus was on art, he worked in his father’s contracting firm drafting plans and served as a laborer on construction sites. Jeb has been designing homes since 1971.
Jeb earned a degree in Architecture and a Master of Business Administration degree at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge in 1980 and 1981. While all of this was in progress, Jeb began to create copper plate etchings to produce prints that reflected his love of Louisiana and its culture.
After marriage to Robin in 1978, Jeb and Robin moved to Dallas, Texas to pursue printmaking as his career. With six agents and sales in 45 states, Canada, and overseas, he also held art shows, two of which were in New York City. By 1984, almost 9,000 of his etchings were in collections throughout the U.S. Today, he estimates that over 11,000 of his etchings, originals, and reproductions are in private collections.
The death of Jeb’s father, Joe, in 1983 led Jeb to return to Shreveport to carry on a family business that started in 1953. Jeb continued his love for art through the design of unique custom homes and shared his enthusiasm for his work in community college classrooms, offering classes on designing, remodeling, and building custom homes.
Jeb has also led his companies to win a number of remodeling awards. For Jeb Design Build LLC, Louisiana HBA awards for kitchen and bathroom design, the BBB Customer Commitment Award, the GuildMaster award from GuildQuality for several years running, and the 2012 Angie’s List Super Service Award.
Other awards include the Small Business Administration 2012 District Award Winner for the Northwest Region, the 2012 LSU Tiger Award for the Fastest Growing Tiger Owned Businesses, and the Guild Master award in Customer Service in 2011 and 2009. For Re-Bath, the 800 Award from Reputation.com for outstanding customer service, and fastest growing franchise year over year in 2019.
