At Simpson Builders, personal attention is key.

“We are personally involved every step of the way,” says Mary-Dolph. “We work directly with the architect, which is unique.

With expertise and vast experience across the spectrum of architectural styles, Simpson Builders is as brilliant at crafting a cozy cottage as they are a stately waterfront retreat, all authentic to the Eastern Shore and coastal Tidewater aesthetic.
