Garrison Homes
Home Builders in Lewes, DE
"Selecting the custom home builder Garrison Homes to construct our new home was the best decision my wife and I could have made. We selected Garrison homes after receiving bids from four separate custom home builders. Garrison built a quality home to our design specifications that was completed on time and the workmanship and materials utilized were top shelf. Also, the people we worked with at Garrison could not have been more professional and truly wanted us to be satisfied with our new home. I certainly would recommend them to anyone who was considering having a custom home built."

Lane Builders LLC
Home Builders in Lewes, DE
"Lane is building our new beach home. So far, communication has been excellent, process has been smooth, progress is slow but not all their fault, and the quality of the workmanship is excellent. We have a difficult Homeowners Association and Lane (and Jeff) have been very accommodating in dealing with the HOA and the very difficult reps. Lane was highly recommended to me, and I would give them 5 stars except the project isn't finished yet (hoping for end June, '13). We are very pleased so far."

McGregor Custom Homes
Home Builders in Lewes, DE
"Working with Jim McGregor was a pleasure! This is the third home we've built so we've had some experience in the process and this was by far the easiest. He is extremely detail oriented. He spotted little things we hadn't even noticed that weren't exactly right and made his guys correct them. A very conscientious, knowledgeable, accommodating and pleasant builder to work with. This is our second year in the home and we love it. We highly recommend McGregor Custom Homes."
