We Put Our Decades of Experience to Work For You
Blue Hen has been building exceptional homes for families in Kent County and Sussex County since 2008. Darrin and Laura Simpson believed in their team and their community so much that they opened Blue Hen shortly after the housing bubble burst.
Garry Manaraze has been a part of the team from the outset. Darrin and Garry first began working together in the mid-1990s for an area homebuilder. They moved on to Lacrosse Homes of Delaware at the same time—Darrin as Delaware division manager and Garry as a project superintendent. They now have two decades of experience working together and helping to fulfill the dreams of area homebuyers.
An Energetic Team That Cares
Laura came to work for the business full time in 2011. She initially focused on marketing but has shifted her attention to sales and plan development. Her greatest joy is helping homebuyers choose the finishing touches for their homes.
Garry’s sons Cameron and Casamaro (Caz) have joined the Blue Hen team as carpenters, and his daughter, Mackenzie, is Blue Hen’s office assistant. Mackenzie’s role includes securing building permits, managing the service department and assisting with sales as needed.
Blue Hen has continued to grow through the years. In 2017, after seven years as a home-based operation, the company moved into its office and Design Center Showroom at 1 Dorman St. in Harrington, Delaware.
