Sea Thru Construction, Inc. began as a modest side hustle for our President, Scott Woolard Jr. “Back then” Scott, whose Uncle Bob taught him to frame when he was 18, served the OBX as a sub-contractor and handyman while working full time. 21 years ago, a tropical storm opened the doors for him to take Sea Thru full-time. Since then, Scott has become a NC licensed General Contractor and opened up a fully-staffed office — designed to provide concierge-like care to resident and non-resident OBX homeowners — in Harbinger, NC. Sea Thru’s commitment to astonishing our clients couldn’t be accomplished without the rest of the Sea Thru Team.
Scott, pictured left, has been in the construction business for over forty years. He built his first house in Chesapeake, Virginia and his first house in North Carolina only 21 years ago.
Scott learned the business of construction from the ground up, starting as a teenager and working for his Uncle Bob. (You can read more about his start in construction — and what The Virginian Pilot calls Scott’s “ridiculous work ethic– here.)
When he mastered one skill, he would go to his uncle and ask to learn something else. For over forty years, he has continued to sharpen his knowledge of building, while his passion for building extraordinary homes continues to grow. Scott’s knowledge of every aspect of the home building process, combined with his unrelenting love for EVERYTHING Caribbean make his homes truly unique. While Scott enjoys new construction, he also loves to remodel existing homes from the ground floor up.
Here are a few places you may have seen Scott quoted or featured:
He first entered the OBX Parade of Homes in 2005. He and his wife were truly humbled by the tremendous response from the judges and the visitors alike. After walking through one of Sea Thru’s custom homes, it is no surprise that his house won the Special Features award, the Award of Excellence, as well as the People’s Choice Award. When he’s not working, he’s planning his next trip to St. Maarten, the inspiration for his “all things Caribbean” obsession.
But none of this could or would have been accomplished without his wife, sidekick, cheerleader and co-owner, Vickie. Vickie and Scott — high school sweethearts — have been married for 42 years, have 2 kids, 5 grandkids, and work together seamlessly. Vickie has a bachelors degree in Integrative Health from American College of Health Services, and is passionate about natural health, living life to the fullest, and –yes– all things Caribbean.
At Sea Thru, Vickie is the boss. She’s ruthlessly committed to her clients as well as to her employees. She’s the force behind our concierge-like service and our commitment to astonish our clients–rather than merely “satisfying” them.
