Meet the Team

Our team relies highly on a family network we have created, which are known as our subcontractors and suppliers. This family knows what Graulich Builders expect during the process of constructing your home. We are proud to have such close relationships with these local companies.

From the involvement of Our Team to the dedicated team of professionals that work for us, we try to make each homebuilding project a unique experience for the client. This is what sets us apart from the competition.

Nate Graulich (Founder/President)

Nate started his own company in 2006. After serving in the Navy, stationed in Guam as a Master at Arms Police Officer, Nate moved here to the lewes beach area in 2003 and worked for local custom builders. Since growing up in the construction field his whole life with his father, he realized he wanted to start his own custom home company. Starting it in 2006, when the building industry was collapsing, was not the best time, but Graulich Builders has survived into what’s become The Premier Beach Custom Builder. Nate is very hands on and always on site looking after each project like his own. “I truly believe that Client First in this business goes a long way. From the initial meeting, through design and build, and the lasting relationships that follow. I push this belief on all of my employees and partners to follow through and make sure that our Clients are number one”

Nate resides in Lewes with his beautiful and supporting wife, Jess, his daughter, Harlee, and his son, Diesel are proud to call this wonderful area home.

Jeff Kirby


Jeff Kirby is the acting Project Manager for Graulich Builders. Jeff was born and raised in central Michigan. He is a graduate of NYU, earning a degree in Real Estate with an independent concentration on Construction Management. In his 20 years in the construction industry, he has developed his skills of being able to bring to a successful completion, a wide range of projects which include high end custom single family homes, multi-family residential buildings, and corporate office interiors.

Being able to adapt and be “fluid” in this industry is important to Jeff as he loves to be challenged in his work. “It’s imperative to be able to adapt to issues and challenges that come with new, different, and unique projects. Being a ‘well rounded’ builder helps me to foresee potential issues before they arise and derive a solution early on. When you are able to do that, you can not only maintain the project schedule, but it saves inflated extra costs.” Paying attention to the details is also one of Jeff’s focuses. “The old cliche ‘the devil is in the details’ is so true.” Jeff says. “Details matter at all phases of any project, from the pre-construction design, to the actual building, to the final punch list. When you really pay attention to details, you can be proud of the final product you deliver to your client.”

In his free time, Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife and children and playing golf.
