Ireland's finest...

Owners John and David brought their families from Dublin, Ireland in 1994.  Having an extensive knowledge of fine woodworking (John as a furniture maker and David as organ builder) and construction, plus their fancy accents, they naturally took Columbia by storm. Several years later they have secured a reputation in the city as a quality and honest builder. Now, with a team of extraordinary people behind them, they continue to build upon their reputation.

How we work...

      It's Monday morning, everyone’s getting ready for school and work.  Suddenly, a commotion erupts outside the only bathroom in your house, and all you hear is the muffled shout of "occupied!” coming from within the bathroom.  It's followed quickly by a shriek of frustration as your daughter stomps off to her room tripping over her little brother in the process.  That's when it hits you; you've outgrown your home, it's time for a change.  Whether it's building a new home, or remodeling your current home to add another bathroom, what is your first step?  At Celtic Works, we believe that the first step (after determining your budget, of course), is selecting a builder...

       So, what builder are you going to use?  If you are basing your decision on whoever is cheapest, we're probably not a right fit.  If you are looking for a builder who does "Cost-Plus", we're probably not a good fit.  If you are looking for a builder who is going to gouge you, steal your wallet and leave you high and dry with a half-completed house... we're not a good fit.  On the other hand, if you value quality and honesty, and want to know up front how much it’s going to cost to build/renovate your home, our pre-construction planning service may be of interest to you.

       You see, Celtic Works has a pre-construction process that is second to none!  Before we build your home, we build it on paper first.  It’s not simply coming up with an estimate, it’s helping you with navigating all the decisions, like designing the kitchen, picking out the floor finishes, so you’re informed and educated about what’s included in your project before we start. We have advanced digital technology and qualified subcontractor/vendor resources at our fingertips, to help us accomplish this.  Do you remember the last house you built, your contractor came to you halfway through the project and told you he forgot to account for the driveway, and that your house was going to cost you $5000 more than he originally told you?  That doesn't happen with Celtic Works.
