The Lewes Building Company was formed in 2007 by John & Kathleen Leebel who saw an opportunity for a local custom home builder to deliver high-quality custom homes with the efficiency of larger regional builders. Every project is managed from start to finish with John and Kathleen's personal involvement. John & Kathleen are committed to establishing The Lewes Building Company as one of the premier builders at the Delaware beaches.

The Lewes Building Company makes the homebuilding experience a personal and enjoyable process. Our business model is founded on an owner-managed build and direct communication with the client. Your home is not only a financial investment, but an investment of your time and creativity. John Leebel, co-owner of the company, assists each client with selections, budgeting, and serves as a liaison with specialty contractors. Daily on-site owner management maximizes quality control and minimizes construction delays.

Because The Lewes Building Company only offers a limited number of home starts per year, we are able to provide our clients with personal attention and superior construction management. We are unique because we implement the same models of construction costing, contracting, and scheduling used by long-standing homebuilding companies from the national arena. These business skills combined with owner-managed construction, high-quality products, and access to craftsmen is why The Lewes Building Company is the only small builder at the Delaware Beaches that can offer impressive build times, lasting value, and exceptional quality.

Our goal is to provide custom homes that consistently exceed the expectations of our clients. We believe that architectural design and detail and the finishes in a home, are as important as its’ structural components.
