Dion Lamb The most amazing man in the renovation business, hands down.

I have lived at the beach for over 20 years and really can’t imagine living anywhere else. My wife Caran is a kindergarten teacher at Rehoboth Elementary and we have two children Emily 8 and Brady 6. I love the beach, surfing, snowboarding, and volleyball when I can find time. I am also a trainer for Crossfit Lewes and very active in youth coaching. In previous lives I have been a rock star, a professional volleyball player, and a surf shop owner.

Prior to entering the renovation and remodeling field seven years ago,  I worked for an engineering company for 10 years. I think that technical background helps provide a more technical approach to our processes and scheduling. I love watching the transition from before to after in the renovation field, and helping coach clients through the process. But even more so I love being part of a company who completely lives by its mission that client happiness is always first. It’s a great environment and really helps to not only make projects fun and successful but also builds new friendships and lasting relationships.

John Coyle The world's greatest project manager.

I love to build. Tear it apart, fix it, make it better. Or start with an empty space and build something useful and beautiful. And do it well.

25 year design and construction professional. Moved to the beach in 1999 from Northern Virginia. Experienced from the drafting table to the carpenters pouch and back. Been blessed to work on a very wide variety of high end construction projects from 180 year old houses to light commercial fit-outs to brand new custom homes. Been equally blessed to work with some of the best professionals in the business.

Reside in Dagsboro with my wife Trina and two of our children, Liam and Ella. Our oldest daughter Bianca lives and works in Alexandria, VA. Fishing, Hunting, NASCAR, and golf are awesome. I love to serve the Lord.

Joined the team in October 2010. Diggin’ the company’s culture of exceeding customer expectations, and the interaction of really fun people to work with.

Project:Stockley Street

This whole house renovation was initiated to update this traditional Rehoboth beach house. While we updated almost every room in the house, the client’s major focus was the kitchen and master bathroom. Both the kitchen and master bath were stripped and completely ‘Renewed’. The best thing about this project was that we were able to keep the traditional beach cottage essence of the house while providing the clients with greater functionality and modern amenities.
