The Professional Home Construction Company

Remodel or Rebuild

Luxury Home Living

"Should we remodel or rebuild?" That is the question we hear most often from home owners up and down the Main Line and in and around Rehoboth Beach. We will help you to evaluate your project to determine if remodeling or rebuilding is the best approach.

When remodeling a home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, remodeling a home can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Are there budget considerations? What about the style, design, and plans? Are there homeowner association, community, city, or state restrictions that may impact the design or plans?

What kind of help do I need? Should I talk to a builder? Or should I talk to an architect first? Many wonder if there is a professional that they can trust who will take full responsibility for the entire project?

TEAM: Dakota Dawn initiates each project by creating a team that consists of architects, designers and construction managers. The entire team is involved from start to finish together with top sub-contractors and suppliers.

EXECUTION: Our clients expect the best and refuse to take risks to cut costs. They insist on creative designs, high quality craftsmanship, timely delivery and a commitment to their budget. 27 years of experience have increased our capacity to meet those demands through value engineering, virtual design and continuing integration of innovative materials and systems.

"The 5 Simple Steps"

Inspired Design

Exciting design ideas drive every project. It all starts with our listening and idea session. Dakota Dawn understands that you want your own special place that reflects your style and taste. We also understand that your satisfaction is based on the simple premise that we must deliver what you want for what you expect to spend.

STEP ONE “Let’s Talk.”™ This is a listening and idea session to establish the scope and estimated budget range for your project. Your space needs, design preferences, and personal details, are all identified together with your budget.


STEP TWO “Storyboard Process,”™ This step is where the design takes shape. Your ideas a translated into plans that are readily transformed into three dimensional views by our state-of-art CAD system. You are positioned in your new home and allowed to walk through the spaces. Furniture and finishes are installed so you can feel the spaces as they will truly be. As the design progresses, the budget is adjusted. You see what will be built and exactly what it will cost.

STEP THREE “The Details” This is when we wrap up the design and insure all the pieces that will be required to complete your dream are included in the work. Detailed construction plans and specifications are prepared and final costs are established. Upon completion, a final construction agreement is presented for your approval.

STEP FOUR, “The Big Event,”™ the Dakota Dawn Construction Team transforms your plans into reality. Your plans are built to specifications.


STEP FIVE “Happily Ever After.”™ Your project has been completed, on time, on budget, and Dakota Dawn has earned your 5-Star review.
