Why Us?

In a sea of sameness, Shoreline Construction stands out among builders in the South Carolina Lowcountry. 

No Debt

As a matter of principle, we believe in fiscally sound business practices.  We carry no debt on our business or projects, which allows us to protect your investment.  It also affords us the opportunity to provide you with talented craftsmen and suppliers who trust us to run our company with integrity.

On Time

Shoreline always strives to achieve an “on time/on budget” status with our homes.  We believe that thorough and careful planning is critical to a successful outcome.  In the event a homeowner makes changes to their plans or selections in the middle of a build, we are committed to being fully transparent and upfront with respect to how changes to the specs may impact the costs and timeline of a project.  We embrace your vision, even when that vision evolves.


If you’re like many of our customers, and are based out of town while your new home is being built, rest assured that you are in good hands with Shoreline.  We’ve harnessed the latest in online builder communication platforms to keep you closely informed of progress, process, and pricing.  In short, we understand that your peace of mind is paramount to a positive building experience.

Interior Design

With truly special Lowcountry homes, the difference is in the details.  To that end, our team of talented in-house designers plays a significant role in setting Shoreline apart.  Their work has been featured prominently in local, regional, and national publications, and they’re here to assist in guiding you through the selection process.  When the selections are finished, they work hand-in-hand with our craftsmen to see the install through to completion.


We look forward to working with you!


What Our Clients Have To Say

Great overall experience… Staff was friendly, effective, and very helpful at all times throughout the process.  They make the process easy and the outcome was a great value. 

-Dan and Lorraine Sheehy

Because I am in Canada, a number of details had to be done by email.  It was a real pleasure working with Gerri and the staff at Shoreline – they were great!  I have no regrets leaving them to finalize everything when I could not be there.

-Jill Anderson

Gerri and Connor are assets to your company and have been both responsive and good to work with.

You can't go wrong if you select Shoreline Construction to build your home.  Our home was built on time and within budget.  With Shoreline, you will not have any hidden costs.  They have decorators on staff who help you make your selections and decor choices.  We really appreciated this service.  I don't know how we would have made all of the choices without Molly's help.  We did not live in the area during the build, but found the process to be fun and exciting.  We looked forward to our trips south to make selections and to see firsthand the progress being made on our home.  When we first saw our completed home, we where delighted.  It exceeded all of our expectations.  In the two-and-a-half years we have lived here, we’ve had very few problems.  The Shoreline team has always been very responsive when we’ve called to have items repaired or checked.  We found that many items that are options with other builders are standard features for Shoreline homes.

As absentee homeowners, it was essential that we had full confidence that the contractor would fulfill their promises without our presence to check on them.  After meeting Chris Dalzell, talking with him, and listening to his philosophy on building homes and the business organization he had working with him, we felt very confident that if we could agree on the design and price, then he was our contractor.  Fortunately, he had a model that we loved and the price was agreeable and the rest was history.  One important aspect that was paramount in selecting Chris was the manner in which he approached the process as a win-win.  He presented a contract that was very easy to read and understand and everything was properly spelled out.  He had no problem answering our questions.  He was a pleasure to work with throughout the project.  Also, Molly Barr, our interior designer, was just icing on the cake through our experience.  She was very professional and very easy to work with in all areas.  She’s a true professional who wants the experience to be a pleasure and not a burden.  She was always on time for appointments and prepared for each meeting we had.  We had two superintendents with Steve and Bob because of illness during the process.  They both stepped up when needed.  I can't express enough how truly happy we are with the building experience and I credit that to Chris and his Shoreline staff.

- Rick and Becky Harris

Debbie and I cannot possibly express how great it was to work with all the professionals at Shoreline.  Chris has put together a highly qualified group of professionals who are all about client satisfaction.  We had high expectations and the Shoreline personnel exceeded every one of those expectations.  We would recommend Shoreline to anyone who wants a high quality product built by true craftsmen.
