Who We Are

The tradition that began over 40 years ago with the goal of those two partners to provide high quality, honest, timely service continues today in Dar Mar Homes, Inc., a second generation company specializing in custom built single family residences.

ABOUT DAR MAR

Dar Mar is a second generation residential construction company trusted and respected in East County and the Portland Metropolitan area for over 40 years.

Dar-Mar Construction was originally established in the late 1960’s as a partnership between Darrell Fugman and Martin Al Levison dedicated to craftsmanship in framing (before the specialization of many trades) from the ground up.

In the 1970’s the partners parted ways but Dar-Mar Construction remained as the dba for Martin Al Levison.  Continuing in the tradition of quality the partners had established Al Levison was dedicated to providing superior framing labor. As the times changed and specialty trades became prevalent Dar-Mar evolved into a first class general contracting company. Having the first hand knowledge of many trades served the company well.

As Dar-Mar Construction continued to flourish, incorporation occurred in 1991, under the direction of Martin Al Levison, President, Gwen Levison, Secretary and Jolene Fox, Treasurer. James L. Weber, Jr worked for the company in the late 1980’s and joined the company again in 1995, as the founding officers, Al and Gwen Levison, considered retirement.

As the knowledge of one generation was passed to another so too was the respect of the company name: in 1997 Dar Mar Homes became the dba for James L. Weber, Jr and in 2000 the circle was complete with the incorporation of Dar Mar Homes, Inc. under the direction of James L. Weber, Jr, President, Gwen Levison, Vice President, and Jolene Fox Weber, Secretary-Treasurer.

The tradition that began over 40 years ago with the goal of those two partners to provide high quality, honest, timely service continues today in Dar Mar Homes, Inc., a second generation company specializing in custom built single family residences.

MEET THE TEAM

Al & Gwen Levison

Al & Gwen (Cookie) Levison, since retiring, enjoy the life of snow birds; choosing to spend winters in the warmer climate of Palm Springs, CA. Jimmy and Jolene rely on the knowledge and expertise of Al & Cookie, calling on them regularly for input. It is invaluable to be able to tap the vast years of experience, especially when navigating the uncertain waters of the economy the last few years, from successful business owners who’ve not only weathered economic storms but succeeded because of sound business knowledge and decisions.

Jimmy & Jolene Weber

We were raised in the Pacific Northwest, Jimmy in the Puget Sound and Jolene in Portland. Meeting at the University of Portland while attending college, Jimmy graduating with a Marketing and Management degree and Jolene graduating with a Finance degree; we married a couple years after graduating and both worked in the Puget Sound until returning to Portland in 1995. We returned to East County, returned to home building with Dar Mar Construction in anticipation of the retirement of Jolene’s parents, Al & Gwen Levison. After Al & Gwen’s retirement, we continued the custom building tradition.

We are a small custom builder, paying particular attention to each customer’s individual wishes. We take the time to understand what the customer’s vision of the project is to bring that vision to life – no matter what the scope of the project is – new fence, new deck, new arbor, bath remodel, kitchen remodel, addition, new home. We use local subcontractors and vendors, choosing to keep the business in our local communities.
