ABOUT Bill McClay has been building houses for 27 years. He is a licensed general contractor and began his career in Raleigh, NC, where he built hundreds of homes for satisfied customers. Bill grew up in New Bern, NC and a move back east allowed him to start up operations and continue building quality homes there and in the River Dunes community outside of Oriental, NC. Bill prides himself on his customer attention throughout the home building process. "The customer should always know what is happening with their house and feel at ease being part of the process." Two other keys to Bill's home building philosophy are quality built homes and energy efficiency. Attention to detail and job site accountability are expected to ensure quality, and construction planning and practices recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy ensure energy efficient homes.
