With customer service second to none, we offer the highest quality building, remodeling, carpentry and handyman or facilities services for the homes and businesses of our cherished clients.


Our founder and principle, Christian Pokorn

is from a long line of woodworkers and craftsmanship runs in his blood. Christian spent summers growing up in his native Austria working at his family's sawmill near his hometown of Graz. There he developed a passion for woodworking, honed his craft and had a  strong work ethic instilled from a young age. Christian's passion led him next to construction, getting his start in the industry by fixing up and improving the family home.

He brought his love of construction with him to Monterey, California. There on the California coast, Christian's career in the industry took off and he had the good fortune to work on some of the world's most beautiful homes in Big Sur, Carmel and Pebble Beach. In 2010 he found home here in New Orleans and relocated with his family.

Today Christian is a single dad and his two kids attend Lusher Charter School. Here in New Orleans he gets to live his dream of owning his own construction firm. He's a seasoned expert and resource in his field. Through all types of projects large and small, he's learned the ins-and-outs of building for the particular climate and culture of the New Orleans area. The success of Pokorn Construction has meant growth but Christian still makes time to meet and know every client who can attest to his passion through his accessibility and the hand-written notes each of them receives.
