St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church
Ocean City, MD
In 2013 a fire claimed two lives including that of Reverend David Dingwall at St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Ocean City, Maryland. Gillis Gilkerson was hired to build a 2,300 square foot, two-story addition to replace space lost from the destruction of the rectory. An accessible restroom in DeWees Hall, the parish’s community hall was also added during construction.
The addition is equipped with a larger, more modern elevator, additional storage space, a new ground level lobby, gathering space at the sanctuary level, a meeting and conference space, a new driveway and additional restroom in the parish’s community hall. The expansion fills the void left on the north side of the church created by the demolition of the rectory and has created a positive presence on Baltimore Avenue, facing downtown Ocean City.

“Throughout my 17 years engaging on these types of projects, I can honestly say that Mike (Truitt) was one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. Throughout the process, Mike provided superior customer service and his communication far exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he delivered the building on time and with the exact specifications that were discussed. In addition to customer service, Mike and his company provided high-level workmanship. It was clear that Mike took pride in every phase of the project and that pride showed in the final product. Every part of the build out was delivered flawless. Both the interior and exterior of the building are beautiful!”
