Our Story


David Wilson (Owner) with Coastal Homes & DesignLike all stories begin, it starts with parents. Our builder, David R. Wilson, was born to Joan and Richard Wilson of Georgetown, Delaware. Richard has had a successful construction company (Wilson Construction) for nearly 50 years. It was with Wilson Construction that David learned the right way to build. Starting at the young age of 8, David was working side by side with his father on job site after job site. At the age of 24, David decided to launch his own construction company, Wilson Contracting, Inc. Nearly 25 years later, David has become a statue of his community, church, and the construction industry, starting Delaware Crawlspace Company over a decade ago and his most recent venture, Coastal Homes & Design. You can also keep up with David as he goes Under Construction with the latest building products and trends.


Angel Wilson with Coastal Homes & DesignAngel Wilson, David’s wife of over 2 decades, had the vision to grow the family companies to the next level. Her dream of creating a design center for clients rapidly grew into reality in 2019 with the concept of a new construction division that would be a “one-stop-shop” for anyone building with our family. With David’s experience and her vision, Coastal Homes & Design’s foundation was being laid. Planning for the future, David and Angel wanted to create a company that could be a launching point for the careers of their children, Chloe and Chase Wilson. Chloe is attending Anderson University studying Architectural Interior Design and Chase, who is a high school student at Delmarva Christian, has been working on job sites learning the right ways of construction from his dad.


JR Ennis with Coastal Homes & DesignOn September 30th, 2019, Coastal Homes and Design hired its first major leadership role, J.R. Ennis. His motivation, leadership and marketing skills matched what Angel and David were looking for to grow this newest venture. With J.R. also being family, it was easy to hit the ground running. J.R., Angel, and David began to implement what’s needed to continue building a solid foundation for Coastal Homes & Design—as well as syncing it with David’s 25+ years of construction knowledge – to provide the ultimate experience building your next custom , office or project.


At the end of the day, family is what makes Coastal Homes & Design unique. Our team in the field all have a common skill-sets: QUALITY, HARDWORKING, and TALENTED. The majority of our sub-contractors have been part of our family for over 20 years and are familiar with our standards. We are extremely blessed to have such a passionate and dedicated team. Our quality is uncompromised, and our promise is true.


We are Family. We are Coastal Homes & Design!
