"I would highly recommend Oceanside Builders for any new home construction or building renovation. We receive countless compliments on our home. Many people say we have kept our home in character with the island and have elevated the value of the surrounding area." - Al and Julie Holowack

Our Motivation

Oceanside Builders is founded on the idea that quality built structures are usually cheaper to own and operate in the long run if built using sound building science and engineering practices. Since we do most of our work on the coast of Maine we have learned how to execute the details that will survive the elements, and ensure leak-free windows, doors, roofs and foundations just to name a few.

We are thoroughly fluent in all modern energy-efficient building practices such as geothermal, solar, ICF foundations and more. Please review some of the services we provide below and give us a call to discuss your upcoming new construction or renovation.

"We have been able to count on Eric’s thoughtful planning, careful budgeting, timely scheduling, meticulous attention to detail, regular communication, and well–developed ability to bring us bad news couched within a range of reasonable alternatives. For example, if a planned project prices out beyond our expectations, Eric usually has a good sense of how to achieve our key objectives within the target price range." - Bradlee and AnneHowe

Our Latest Work

   "I have worked with Eric on a number of residential projects and can unconditionally recommend him to anyone seeking the services of a general contractor. He pays attention to detail and produces very high quality work. His experience and attentive manner are valuable to any architect or homeowner in the early stages of the process where he often solves problems before they come up. Once under construction, he will follow through and get things done in a timely manner. There are few other builders who are as capable of producing work in the highest level." - Robert S. MacNeille AIA

Designed by Oceanside Builders

Although we are happy to work with architects, we can help you design your new home, addition, garage, deck, etc.

We are up to date with the latest building methods that result in an energy efficient home or retrofit. Our own home, still being built, has a geothermal heating system, ICF foundation, solar and many more energy saving features.

Because we have lived on the coast of Maine all of our lives, we know how to take advantage of the type of building lot you have, even if it is small and has uneven geography, such as a slope down to the water. We will help you design a building that just seems to 'fit' your property.

We are thoroughly familiar with the building codes in the midcoast Maine area and can help you get the proper building permits.
