Oak Construction Design and Build
Design-Build Firms in Lewes, DE
"We hired Oak Construction to design and build our home. We went to Mike and Matt Purnell with ideas and pictures. Both were able to guide us in our choices to keep within budget and suggest alternatives that enhanced our ideas. Deadlines were met in a timely manner. Communication was open, frequent and always accessible. We had total trust in the advice we received from the Purnells. They built our house as if it were their own."

Hawthorne Davis Development
Design-Build Firms in Lewes, DE
"Hawthorne Davis (HD) built a vacation home for me in North Wildwood, NJ. While I knew one of the owners, I was not going to simply hand HD the business. It was apparent to me very quickly that HD was a quality organization that is very focused on customer satisfaction. They blew away the competition with their preparation and presentation. My experience with HD was awesome. The company is very responsive & responsible. The quality of the workmanship is superior. Ray Hawthorne & George Davis are great to work with. They exceeded my expectations. Jen Hawthorne is very nice & professional. She is always willing to help. I would highly recommend HD. My customer experience was truly exceptional."

Design-Build Firms in Lewes, DE
"I have enjoyed watching Bruce design and build several beautiful homes using Integrity Windows and Doors from Marvin. Bruce is fully engaged in the design build process. From the first meeting with a client, Bruce listens to the homeowner, designs a home that fits the homeowner's lifestyle and builds a masterpiece utilizing the highest quality products and extraordinary craftsmanship. It is my pleasure to play a small role in the Bruce Mears team effort to deliver one of a kind homes that are designed and built to meet and exceed homeowner expectations."

MJH Construction, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Lewes, DE
"From the first time we met Mike, we were very impressed. He is professional, prompt, honest, trustworthy, and thorough. His proposal was concise and very detailed. All of the employees at MJH Construction are incredibly professional and very skilled. We have never had to have any work redone. We will most certainly use MJH Construction again in the future as well as recommend them to any one who needs a general contractor."

McCarthy and Son Contracting Co., Ocean City, Md.
Design-Build Firms in Lewes, DE
"McCarthy and Son designed and constructed an addition to our home. From concept to planning to acquiring permits the project flowed very smoothly. The addition included a new kitchen, dinning/bar area and rec room. They kept our existing structure, kitchen included, livable and protected from the elements during the whole process. I am a construction manager at a major mid-Atlantic university and I can state that their quality of the work is second to none. From excavation to footings to framing to the interior design and its execution this is a first rate project. I would recommend McCarthy and Sons to anyone without reservation."

"Marnie Homes rocks! Her work is always top notch and beautiful to say the least. We worked with Marnie to install solar on a home she was building for some very happy home owners! Green Street Solar ran all solar conduit pre-drywall and Marnie was great through the whole process. Being LEED certified her designs sure do compliment our solar work very nicely. Highly recommend!"

"We are extremely happy with our experience with Bozek and highly recommend them. From the sales department to the serviceman, we have absolutely no complaints. During every step of the process, there was always someone available to answer our questions, and to keep us updated with the progress. We chose a plan that was closest to what we wanted and modified it to turn it into our dream-home. The craftsmanship is impeccable and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Bozek, for turning our dream-home into a reality! We recommend them for anyone in the Maryland area looking for an amazing custom built home."

Cusamano Builders Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Lewes, DE
"I had Matt out to the house to discuss a Screen Porch project. Unlike some other contractors I had out he showed up as scheduled. He spent time discussing what was needed and honestly pointed out the pros and cons of the project. He clearly pointed out many of the difficulties that might be encountered. He also proposed some alternative solutions that might work and even save some cash. I appreciated his professional attitude, which was much improved over other contractors I have met with. I don't know if we will go forward with the project or not, but thanks to Matt I feel I am in a much better position to make an informed decision."

What is a design-build firm?


Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors and construction companies, all under one roof. These full-service firms focus on a streamlined design-build process — from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction — in the hope of creating an efficient experience for both the client and the company. Because the entire project is happening within one company, Lewes design-build firms are able to overlap the design and construction phases of the project, which often speeds up the project significantly. In addition, these firms work to minimize risks for the project owner through single-point responsibility contracts. However, depending on the firm, you may still want to contact an interior designer or architect to help create the exact look you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design-build firms: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Before deciding on a residential design-and-build company in Lewes, DE, think about what you want from your new home. Do you want a large kitchen for entertaining? Do you need several bedrooms for children and guests? Do you want a finished basement for extra space or storage? Look for Lewes design-builders that specialize in the areas you're looking for. Budget is obviously a determining factor in the outcome of your project. To make sure you stay within your means, consider making a must-have list and a wish list. Gauge where the estimates are falling to determine which design-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.

Questions to ask a prospective Lewes design-builder:


  • How long have you been in the design-build construction business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Who is your designer, and what are his or her qualifications?
  • Are your employees licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
