About McCarthy Homes

McCarthy Homes’ roots in this community reach back to 1983. This is the year that Michael McCarthy moved to this area for the same reasons that attracted so many others: beautiful beaches, peaceful way of life, and abundant opportunities. Michael has built a lifelong career of building people the houses that they’ve always wanted here at the beach.

The landscape of this area in 1983 was much different than it is now. Major track home communities and shopping centers were all still years from breaking ground. Michael began making a name for himself by remodeling beach cottages along the coast from Dewey Beach down to Fenwick Island. During these years, Michael developed a strong understanding and passion for architecture true to this area.

As the years progressed, Michael moved his operations inland to match the growing popularity of this area. He employed a full-time framing crew and annually built four to six single-family homes. McCarthy Homes specialized in building single-family homes, perfect for local residents or a summer vacation home. One of Michael’s sayings that best illustrates his approach to home building is, “From mild to wild." Over the years, McCarthy Homes has built everything from quaint beach cottages up to two story houses on pilings. Whatever your ideas may be, McCarthy Homes has the ability, experience and track record necessary to build your home.

The future for McCarthy Homes rests in keeping current with the natural progression of the housing industry. Off-site stick building systems have advanced leaps in bounds over the years in building affordable, energy efficient homes. This technology has been incorporated into McCarthy Homes. As always, McCarthy Homes will stay true to our motto of “Exceeding Expectations” for every homeowner we have the opportunity to work for.
