Bethany Beach Homebuilder To Debut DIY Network TV Show
Bethany Beach homebuilder Marnie Oursler makes being a woman in a male-dominated industry work to her advantage.
“If I’m building a house for a husband and wife, I connect with both. Naturally, the women feel comfortable asking me questions. With the men, there’s a stereotype that they’re supposed to know about cars and houses, and most people don’t know about either one. We’re a team – you tell me what you want and we’ll figure it out,” she said. “And being a female makes me different. So if there are 10 male builders and me bidding on a house, I’m instantly memorable.”
The 39-year-old Oursler will star in “Big Beach Builds,” a TV show that focuses on homes throughout coastal Sussex County, premiering March 20 on the DIY Network.
