Since 1986!



The preconstruction process is the cornerstone of every coastal construction project MIKEN Builders completes. Through collaborating with our team members, architectural designers, and construction industry professionals, we’ll work to understand our shared vision and take the first steps towards your finished home.

Working with Your Architect & Designer

Our architectural designers are used to working on custom home projects of every size, scope, and difficulty level. A skilled architect can easily guide you through the design process and take your vision and make it a refined, practical reality. All of our team members live and work in our greater Delaware community, so we’re familiar with home siting issues, FEMA Flood Zones, DNREC beach construction requirements, zoning laws, and any neighborhood restrictions that may affect the possibilities for your custom waterfront home.

Your architectural designer will also ensure the structural integrity of the finished design, which is of particularly significant importance in homes with open floor plans. The architect will also produce the final drawings and documents that our construction team will work from to make your home a reality. By using MIKEN Builders for the design/build process, you’ll enjoy a seamless flow from phase to phase in our process. The design/build method is also preferred by many customers because it saves money and time over other construction methods.


Budgeting is a painless process when you partner with MIKEN Builders and take advantage of our design/build services. Since the budget is completed early in the project, there will be fewer surprises and setbacks along the way. Design/build clients also enjoy cost savings and time savings along the way. The budgeting phase will include an estimate from your concept plans, followed by a detailed estimate when your plans are complete.

Interior Design

The inside of your home matters just as much as the sturdy foundation MIKEN creates, so we provide all of our clients with 5 hours of interior design consulting with each of our projects. Our interior design consultants know how to beautifully decorate your beach home and offer expert advice.
