The Gold Standard

The Lewes Building Company combines individual design with proven products to create a custom built home that is healthy, sustainable, and distinctive. Our low maintenance exteriors, high efficiency systems, and engineered floor systems are just a few of the standard features that allow you to spend time enjoying your home.

A Better Design

image_copy3The Lewes Building Company works with a team of local designers and architects to create customized floor plans or modify existing plans to compliment the natural beauty of your property, maximize your views, and improve the livability of your home. We use great custom home plans from leading architectural firms such as Frank Betz, Don Gardner, and Stephen Fuller. We also recommend Southern Living’s house plan collection as a source for our clients. Their collection include many custom home designs to suit a variety of tastes. Knowing all of our homes are designed by architects versus in-house draftsmen, our clients can rest assured knowing their home was designed by an award winning, nationally recognized architect after he or she spent long hours verifying every detail.


A Better Building Experience

At The Lewes Building Company, we believe the building process should be as enjoyable as the finished home. We are proud to be a small company with a very experienced and efficient staff who communicate and work with clients directly. John Leebel has managed the construction of hundreds of homes and has held management positions for the top national luxury home builders in the country.

A Quieter Home

Silent floor systems, blown-in insulation, tankless water heaters, and high efficiency HVAC systems are just a few of the features that make a Lewes Building Company custom home more sound, comfortable, and efficient.


A Stronger Home

Lewes Building Company homes feature engineered floor systems, incorporating I-joist and laminated veneer lumber for extraordinary strength and stability. High-performance I-joists are stronger pound for pound, straighter, and more reliable than traditional lumber. These superior I-joists also have reduced moisture content for floors with fewer nail pops and squeaks.


A Safer Home

All Lewes Building Company homes are pre-wired for security systems. We also design and install a variety of wired and wireless technologies for safety, comfort, and home entertainment. Tailored packages include home theaters, whole house audio, home automation including thermostat, lighting, and door lock control and irrigation control.


A Low-Maintenance Home

The Lewes Building Company uses exterior finishes such as Eldorado Stone and James Hardie products for a virtually maintenance-free exterior. We also use other durable products like PVC and MiraTEC composite exterior trim, providing you with years of care free living.
