Marnie Custom Homes create one-of-a-kind custom beach builds that exceed clients’ wants and needs, turning dream homes into realities.
As a fifth-generation home builder, Marnie has taken all the skills she learned from generations before her and expanded on them to design and build custom beach homes that bring visions to reality. In 2023 she was awarded the Custom Home Builder of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). This award is the highest honor given within the custom home building industry, and she is the first female recipient, as well as the first Delaware-based builder to receive the esteemed award.
While each home Marnie builds reflects life at the beach in a variety of ways, the main goal is to always fulfill the homeowner's wants and needs, creating spaces to fit their lifestyle while embracing the natural surroundings of our Delaware beaches.
