The Bethany Boathouse
Bethany Beach restauranteurs, Brent and Tom, saw the need for a more casual open-air dining experience in Bethany Beach. They brought their idea and a “postage stamp” sized site to MIKEN Builders. Wanting to bring a local feeling to the businesses, MIKEN designed the creative concept of a Coast Guard Station, similar to those found throughout coastal Delaware and Maryland. The design was customized to meet the tiny site and included a gazebo bar “on the water.” Brent and Tom wanted to be good neighbors, so MIKEN worked to develop and install sound-dampening insulation on the sides of the building facing residential condominiums. Throughout the project, MIKEN effectively managed the design, cost, and construction of this new landmark community restaurant.
Gigglebugs Early Learning Center
From a place to hatch chicks to a gorgeous facility to care for and educate children, MIKEN Builders designed and managed the Gigglebugs Early Learning Center transformation. After selling a three-facility daycare company in West Virginia, this entrepreneurial couple returned to their roots in Delaware to establish a new, top-of-the-line early learning center. After finding a great need for such a facility in Millsboro, they sought the perfect location, which ended up having an old chicken hatchery on site. They came to MIKEN Builders with the property and their dream, and we’re able to develop a cost-effective way to transform the building through extensive evaluation and a healthy dose of creativity. MIKEN assisted the owners in working with the Small Business Administration (SBA) to set a reasonable budget and manage the concepts from concept through construction. The end result is a beautiful childcare facility that provides our youngest community members with a great place to learn and grow.
St. Martha’s Episcopal Church Addition
St. Martha’s Episcopal Church has been in the heart of Bethany Beach since the 1904s. Originally built as a Summer Chapel, it had received a few upgrades and renovations over the years to meet the year-round needs of a growing congregation. They came to MIKEN with plans in development to add a fellowship hall and nurseries that would blend in seamlessly with the original chapel. MIKEN helped St. Martha’s to establish a budget and manage costs throughout the construction process. Starting construction after the first of the year, MIKEN worked diligently to enclose the structure before summer crowds and minimize exterior disturbances. We also worked carefully with the pastor and building committee to keep access and egress open, as the church continued to use the facility for worship and meetings throughout the construction process.
