Paul van Steensel

Cape Dreams Building and Design, LLC. was founded by Paul van Steensel. Having had the good fortune of working for some of the best builders on Cape Cod for a number of years, he was exposed to many of the intricate facets of the building industry. Our business is founded on the belief that that honesty, quality, and professionalism go a long way and have truly distinguished our business from our competitors. Of course, these qualities aren’t necessarily chosen, they are most often inherent and simply a reflection of an individual or a teams’ core values: these are the values of Cape Dreams.

Cape Dreams is comprised of its own employees and subcontractors. Without the efforts and expertise of all, we would not be able to offer you the highest level of quality, service, and customer satisfaction that has led to our success. Please use the links below for information on the members of our team. All of them deserve recognition for their superior work and dedication to our customers. Without them, Cape Dreams Building and Design would not be where we are.

Mike spent 40 years as a corporate executive in the telecommunications industry. He owned East Coast Cable & Communications, a contract service firm with over 200 employees in seven states and an annual revenue of over $20 million. He sold the company in 2012 and retired to Orleans, MA where he began working in real estate development on the Cape, in partnership with Cape Dreams. 

Mike has worked with Cape Dreams on many successful real estate development projects over the past seven years. He is responsible for acquisition, financing and legal matters.

We encourage you to use and have complete confidence in any of our designers and subcontractors, as we do on a regular basis.


We chose Paul van Steensel of Cape Dreams to replace our old deck and outdoor shower. His was not the lowest estimate we got, but we were impressed by his presentation and were not disappointed. Not only did he do what we wanted, but his workmanship was excellent and he finished in the time specified by our contract. It is always a pleasure to watch a master craftsman at work. I highly recommend Cape Dreams.
