Skip and Carole Holtzapfel moved to the Wildwoods from Audubon, NJ in 1978. While raising three children, together they began their venture in the building trade and soon after Skip Holtzapfel Builders, Inc. was born. Skip's first projects were constructing duplexes in the North Wildwood area and he quickly gained the reputation as a hard worker and one who offers quality workmanship. His dedication to his work rewarded his business with single-family homes, complete renovations and larger commercial work throughout Cape May County and beyond.
