Backwater Farms Retreat – Ridgeland, MS

Architecture: John Weaver - Landscape: Griffin Eggar - Interiors: Catherine Graber


This owner was the first one of our friends to commit to building in our development, Backwater Farms. We carved them off a 4-acre wooded lot on the back lake and they began working with John Weaver on the design. The French Colonial architecture is prevalent in the hipped roof, large 10’ front porch with over-sized columns, open rafter tails, and antique brick walls and floors. The back of the house faces the lake and has a more relaxed feel with antique pine post and beams.

The interiors are immediately authentic feeling from both the classic architecture and beautiful antiques collected by the home owners and their parents over the years. Rich materials of antique pine, brick, beams, and cypress weave throughout the interiors. The kitchen cabinets and design are classic in construction but very modern and functional. The placement of the house create viewing points throughout of the woods and lake, giving it a tranquil setting that welcomes you home.


We could not by more pleased with our new home. The house is exactly what we wanted and is absolute top quality. David not only constructed the home, but was also involved in the design process which helped make the building process itself very smooth. He also has a keen eye for detail which allowed for many customizations throughout the home that make it all the more unique as well as functional. ... I highly recommend David Turner Companies for homebuilding projects.

David and his team were great to work with. They are very experienced and knowledgeable. The quality of our finished project is superb. David was committed to staying ahead of what came next on the schedule and having his subs lined up so that we did not have days where nothing was accomplished. David showed creativity and flexibility in working with our architect. Highly recommend.
