Designing Homes from Topsail Island to Wilmington

to Brunswick County Since 1988.

Whether you are building a new home in a golf course community, or renovating and updating an existing home that has served your family well, Shoreline Design Group is the firm to turn to for assistance.

The golf plantations of this area are brimming with unique Shoreline residences: St. James, Winding River, Ocean Ridge and Brunswick Plantations, Seascape, Rivers Edge, Lockwood Folly, Landfall, Porters Neck, River Landing, and many others. The experience and proven ability since 1988 is under our belt, let us put it to work for you!


Select one of our unique stock plans to begin the design process, or bring us your ideas and sketches to turn into a truly custom design that is uniquely yours. We will add considerations for "Green" design (which is really good old common sense), Aging in Place (we are all getting older and not younger), and hurricane protection and preparedness. All these factors need to be considered in the design, as well as your budget. Please call for pricing: 910.619.4619

The value we design into your home goes far beyond the ordinary. Each home is designed by Shoreline principal Bernhard Thuersam who holds professional certifications in both building design AND interior design, and ensures that every square foot of the home is utilized efficiently.

We fit the home to your lot and take advantage of the best views, design the home to meet your needs and specific requirements, submit and guarantee timely architectural review board approvals, have the drawings sealed by a structural engineer to exceed NC Hurricane Code, and then monitor construction progress once the home is underway.

One of your best values is Mr. Thuersam's many years of experience   and expertise in reviewing and analyzing contractor cost estimates and advising clients on what the best price really is, and comparing apples to apples. You want a fair and accurate price for the home, we help ensure that you obtain that, and a beautiful new home!


We help our clients better understand the design and construction process, what the actual fair price is to build the home they want, and what is possible and not possible within their budget. Being honest and frank about expected costs results in our clients being empowered to make informed decisions when it comes to what the priorities are and which family needs are more important than others, and what percentage of the budget each receives. Your new home is a very large investment of money, we help you make the best decisions!


All of our clients receive our recommendations on area builders who have distinguished themselves by ability, professional reputation and and longtime financial stability. Once our initial meetings and preliminary design drawings are complete, we suggest meeting with builders to ascertain who will best meet your requirements of reputation and ability, as well as finding the "chemistry" which is the basis of great working relationships.

Our detailed drawings will assist them in preparing their acurate price for the home, and are accompanied by our specific allowances to help keep all estimates equal. When the bids are complete, our many years of experience will be at your disposal as we analyze them with you.

This is my client's assurance that our services pay for themselves in construction cost savings, plus your home is designed around your needs and family. And "designing from a distance" has never been easier---our past clients in Beijing and Moscow can attest to the ease in communication with emailing scanned plans and digital photos.
