Since 1986!

Coastal Construction

MIKEN Builders specializes in coastal construction, and our team has decades of experience creating waterfront custom homes with quality craftsmanship and carefully selected details to keep the wind and water out. Every house is inspected by our team for the proper installation of flashing and seals prior the installation of the siding.


With over 25 years spent Building at the beach Since 1986, you can rest assured that our MIKEN team knows what they’re doing. Waterfront construction is different than constructing homes elsewhere, where water, wind, and thermal concerns are completely different. Partnering with an experienced coastal construction builder is a necessity if you want to have a polished finished product that shows decades of experience instead of a first draft.


MIKEN Builders knows how to keep the salty ocean water out of your custom home and out on the beach instead. Our team members are experts in the process of protecting against water intrusion, and we never skip a step when it comes to weatherproofing, pre-siding, and additional processes to safeguard your waterfront home.


Windy Delaware beaches are lovely for taking a walk with your dog, but gusty waterfront conditions are dangerous for your custom home if it’s not correctly designed. Our custom waterfront homes are built with shearwalls that are designed to withstand coastal winds. As a design/build firm, our architectural designers and construction team work hand in hand to ensure the structural integrity and appropriateness of your plan. The exterior of your home will be finished with siding and roofing ideal for beach use. Careful preparation and expertise protect our waterfront homeowners.


Our homes are designed to exceed local energy standards and utilize green and energy efficient materials, like spray foam insulation. Whether you’re living near the boardwalk or the board room, MIKEN can incorporate energy efficient and green construction techniques into your coastal construction project. We value the world that we live in and the gorgeous waterfront that Delaware beachfront homes enjoy every day. With team members who are Green Building Certified by the National Association of Home Builders, we’re ready to help maximize your home’s energy efficiency.
