All about Blue Hen Construction

Blue Hen Construction, LLC was officially formed in 2008 in response to the devastating housing market collapse. It may cause one to ask, "Who starts a construction company in the midst of one of the worst housing crises the United States economy has ever experienced?" and, Darrin and Laura Simpson would answer soundly, "We did!" Call it crazy-- but that is exactly the way it happened. Darrin was in the midst of a very successful run as the Delaware manager for Lacrosse Homes, a regional developer, when the market collapsed. With much reluctance, he left Lacrosse and took his experience  and the knowledge he gained there to strike out on his own as a small, custom builder. Since those early days in 2008, Blue Hen Construction has always had a house to build--either a custom design or a speculative project on one of their lots. In 2011, Laura Simpson came to work full time in the business. Initially, she put her degree in Graphic Design to use marketing Blue Hen through print advertising and social media. As the years progressed, she moved in to Sales and Plan Development. "Guiding clients through plan development and choosing the right finishes to make their house a home, is my favorite part of the business!" --Laura Simpson.

Now, nearly a decade later, Blue Hen Construction is thriving and building in both Kent and Sussex Counties. After being home based for seven years, 2017 saw Blue Hen open their Office and Design Center at 1 Dorman Street in Harrington, Delaware. Prospective home buyers can choose one of their many floor plans or customize any plan found elsewhere. Each house is customized to fit your budge and your wishlist. Additionally, you can receive design assistance from Laura Simpson if desired. Whether your new home will be 1200 square feet or 5200 square feet, Blue Hen Construction is equipped to bring your vision to life. Darrin and Laura are both committed to constructing the most affordable, energy efficient homes possible while assisting clients in making their home a beautiful place. 

Home is where your journey begins. Let Blue Hen Construction help you begin that journey.
