When you build Lessard you are collaborating directly with every person in our company from our CEO and interior design team all the way to our carpenters.

From your first meeting with us, our aim is to simple: to learn about the life you live so together we can design and build you a space that functionally meets all your needs.
With Lessard Builders every floorplan is 100% customizable. We do not charge extra to move interior walls, make closets bigger, or alter the dimensions or sizes of any room. As we like to say – If you can dream it, we can build it!

Lessard Builders History
Our beginnings in construction stretch back to 1951 when our great-grandfather Dan Lessard started a construction business, Dan Lessard & Son, building homes, pole barns, and buildings in Long Island, New York.
The second generation of Lessards quickly followed Dan, and his son, Addie Lessard, began to take a prominent role working on construction sites with his father. Addie quickly learned his father’s secrets and pushed forward to continue turning people’s dreams into reality. In time he renamed their business Adelard Lessard & Sons. With that came the most natural decision for Addie, to involve and pass along the family knowledge and trade secrets onto his seven children.
When Addie’s children were young he relocated his family to Delaware, as Delaware’s economic outlook was developing and the need for home construction was flourishing. In the 1970’s Addie passed two things to his family: his passion for quality craftsmanship, and the helm of his family business to his young son, Brian. Brian made the decision to rename his family’s business Lessard Builders, and from there the business took off; building custom homes and buildings for families and businesses throughout Kent and Sussex County Delaware.
Today, those of us at Lessard Builders still pride ourselves on our history and the same principles which our great-grandfather Dan had in his heart over 65 years ago: family, community, and working with people to turn their dreams into reality.
