Why We're Different

Why We're Different

When asked what makes Dora J different from other builders, its simple. At Dora J we realized early on, that the building process doesn't stop once we finish building your dream house. The life and memories you create going forward in your custom beach house are why we got into this business. We aren't just putting up walls, paint and moldings. We are setting the stage for the future of your family and the memories to come.

    Happy Client

    Our family was amazed by the final product and we are so proud to call the house you built our beach home. The relationship we have developed with Paul, Jason, Joan, and their crew is beyond just a builder/buyer relationship and it gives us great comfort in knowing that we have a fantastic local builder who can help upkeep the property we have for many years to come.
