Our History

Nugent Design Build began in 1985 in Alexandria, Virginia focusing on fine wood working, cabinetry, and detailing - which remains the hallmark of our custom designs & construction. Licensed in Maryland and Virginia, we are experienced in all facets of homebuilding as well as being exceptionally creative problem solvers. Our headquarters are located in West River along the Chesapeake Bay - just South of Annapolis;, however, we service many areas in Maryland and Northern Virginia.

What makes us unique? We offer both design and build. The design of your home or renovation and the construction of it is are all done by one company. This allows for more collaboration before and during the process, ensuring the design vision for the home matches what is possible through construction.

Our specialty is waterfront homes. Our experience in designing and building custom waterfront homes has resulted in our ability to optimize our home designs for waterfront living. Our waterfront home designs maximize waterfront living in every way and are built to withstand the elements.

At Nugent Design Build, we enjoy working on homes that have a special quality... something that sets them apart. Whether it is an award-winning design, a spectacular setting, the unique interest that the owners or an outside architect bring to the project, the challenge of preserving the character of a home - or creating character where there is none - the story of a place makes building it a rewarding experience for all involvedfun. That's where we find our inspiration and passion.
