Our Journey

Chris & Michele Pasch
A long time ago…we started out as kids honestly, we were a hippy carpenter and a pregnant wife, and we bought our first house in Baltimore, Md in 1986, renovated it ourselves, then sold it off and used the proceeds to buy a 1974 Orange VW Bus. We headed out across the country with our first son full of youth & dreams. We were always eager to explore and had the opportunity to live and work in some of the most scenic landscapes our country has to offer. Chris landed jobs from knowledgeable contractors and craftsmen in the building industry, including; Aspen, Colorado, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, Bend, Oregon, Taos, New Mexico, and Sedona, Arizona. We then returned to Maryland to put this knowledge to use and began a successful design/build company. Six kids later…the only thing we realized that was missing in our lives was our connection to the beach and after years of vacationing in North Carolina, we had the opportunity to move our business to coastal Wilmington, NC. We still love to be outside as much as possible and we still keep learning and we’re proud to say many clients have become dear friends over the years. We do our best to provide a great product and we care about the people who come into our lives. We look forward to meeting you soon.


Our Core Team

We’re a group of fun-loving, good people, who are committed to family, living life outside, and joking around. We always have jobsite tunes playing from an eclectic mix and agree that
mentoring each other and growing in our skillset is the right thing to do. Our office is set up to foster creativity and invite collaborative projects. We love library books and podcasts; we’re into continuing education of our craft and exploring the newest building sciences available to us. On-site we combine each person’s skill set and personality together to create a positive working environment. We’re committed to health and safety on the job. Off-site our crew’s time is spent in the gym, on the beach, playing badminton, or having a cocktail on the porch. Our entire team is committed to client satisfaction and creating a product we’re all proud of.

Good people who provide stunning results with unbeatable time frames!
