We were among the first on the Outer Banks to take a stance against the use of substandard materials!
Innovation & Inspiration
Always on the cutting edge of building trends and practices, East Coast Construction Group, Inc. has been the leader on the Outer Banks for over twenty years. We were among the first builders on the Outer Banks to take a stance against the use of substandard materials. Our exclusive Pool Houses, infinity edge pools, swim-up bars, rock waterfalls, Sports Bars and Theatre rooms were more Outer Banks firsts. We were the first to install glass elevators with hand painted murals throughout the elevator shafts. We were the first to notice a need for change in the housing market and were the first to design and build six, seven, eight, nine and ten bedroom homes.
The exceptional distinctive features in a Lane Home exemplify why there is no substitute for the quality and clearly no substitute for the homes designed and built by Bill and Kim Lane. There is truly no place like an Exclusive Property Lane home.
