See what others have said about Celtic Works...

I had the privilege of working with Celtic Works as a strategic planning consultant. The commitment to integrity and quality among their entire team is clear not only from the finished product, but it also permeates all of their conversations. I had seen their homes prior to consulting for them, and had known of their professionalism and extreme devotion to detail in their work for many years, but having spent the past several months meeting their entire team, working with them in long-range planning, and getting into the “crevices” of their business model, I can honestly say that they are the real deal. I wish all of the companies I worked with were this passionate about wowing their clients. I would be hard pressed to ever consider another home builder since seeing their business model from the inside out.

Celtic Works built our lakeside house while we still lived in Cleveland, Ohio. They worked exceptionally well with our architect and kept us frequently informed with updates and photos. They advised us well in advance of recommended walk-throughs so we could make travel plans. My neighbors advised us that the crew worked hard everyday and cleaned up the site at the end of each day. Celtic Works connected us with other high quality, local resources to select custom cabinets, granite, tile, landscaping, etc. Bottom line, we were totally dependent on their professionalism, skills and advice, and now, there isn’t a single decision we would change.

Their attention to the finest details is reflected throughout our beautiful home. We had no budget “surprises” other than those driven by us. I highly recommend Celtic Works.

I think the best thing I can say is that after completing a very extensive project with Celtic works, I still consider them good friends. If I had another project to do I would not even waste my time looking for another contractor I would just call John.

I am a firm believer in the fact that you get what you pay for, and while we could have found a cheaper option I’m sure, we could not have found the quality workmanship and attention to detail that John brought to this project.

I am always happy to speak with people considering Celtic about how good our experience was with them.

In 2012-2013 Celtic Works built our home in Cayce, SC. They are awesome to work with; we never had an ounce of trepidation with anything they did, recommended or suggested. They made us feel like family each step of the way. Our home is quality inside & out. When people ask us who built it, we puff out our chests and respond “Why Celtic Works, of course”!

Celtic Works has done two projects for me. One a home renovation and the other a “Cock-a-boose” at the USC Stadium. These men are great to work with and their work is the best.
As we were working on the kitchen wing renovation, the home owner was so happy with the work that we were doing, that she extended to work to include the sun-room, powder room and several other projects in the house. By the end of the job, we had work on every room in the house except her sewing room.

The “Cock-a-boose” was a total “gut job”. We started with just the studs. When completed, there was a powder room, efficiency kitchen, lots of storage and seating for about 15 people (and two TV’s.)

If I were to build a house for my self, I would call Dave Barry and turn it over to him. I know that he would do an excellent job. As a designer, I have used some of his “subs” for various small jobs and they all are “top notch”.
