Get to Know Lee Scarlett

I moved to NW Arkansas back in 93'-94' and met my wife shortly after on a blind date. We have made NWA our home and are raising three children here and love it! I've been so blessed with Celtic Construction and the wonderful clients we've worked with over the years. It just goes to show that when you treat folks right, don't cut corners, and communicate you all come out winners! I'm humbled by the continued support I receive from past clients with referrals. Thank you all for allowing me to build your dream homes!

Lee Scarlett from Celtic Construction is absolutely the best contractor/builder we have ever used......and by the way, my wife and I have built 5 homes! Lee is extremely responsive with an amazing sense of urgency! He returns calls and texts very promptly and always within the hour! His attention to detail is second to none. His subs are very loyal, experienced and extremely respectful. My wife and I are so impressed with Lee and his team. We will never use anyone else!!

Lee Scarlett came highly recommended to us from one of his previous clients; which set a good tone because we were new to the area. We were very involved in the process and enjoyed the partnership that was established and welcomed. The Celtic team was second to none. They worked with us to ensure alignment and consistency throughout the construction of our home. We were extremely impressed with the products, skills, and level of professionalism. The quality of the construction is impeccable; including those parts which you can and cannot readily see (i.e. foundation, insulation, framing, etc.). We are very pleased with our home and have received nothing but praise from all who have visited with us. Frank and Thess Bernard

"Celtic Custom Homes made my vision a reality. Lee's sub contractors went out of their way to make sure my house was done properly with no corners cut. The sub's quality is unsurpassed and took great pride in their craft (special thanks to Oxford brothers and Alex Keck). I worked with his sub contractors very closely and Lee always replies to my text messages within 10 minutes. Project was finished a month and half before schedule. Every single person who has come to my house truly appreciates the craftsmanship and quality of my new home."
