Yes, the work of a master! Creative, professional, easy to work with, knowledgable, honest, reliable. Get the idea? Harlan sets the record for what one should look for in a builder. This is likley why my clients use him repeatedly. The last house he built with them sold for a record price within minutes. Their next house is in process and completely different. No signature cookie cutter houses here!Read More

Harlan was the best partner to have for our design/remodel project in Carmel! His enthusiasm, creativity, attention to detail, and well-managed team made our long-distance project run smoothly. We are embarking on a new construction project in Carmel and wouldn't do it without him!Read More

Harlan Bradley (of Masterwork Builders, Inc.) just completed a comprehensive remodel of our cottage in Carmel. We were introduced to Harlan through our architect (Adam Jeselnick—reviewed elsewhere on this site) and we had great chemistry from our very first meeting. Harlan immediately understood what we were after and enhanced the design concept along the way. He was a pleasure to work with on the project and we were enormously impressed by his aesthetics and attention to detail at every step, big or small. Harlan had a great team working for him on the project which produced results that we just love! We were very honored to have Harlan as our contractor, to get to know him as a fine craftsman and develop such a warm relationship over the course of the project. We give him the highest recommendation possible.Read More

Masterwork is a truly talented and dedicated team!! Encompassing those qualities and so much more is Harlan Bradley. It's no secret that a complete remodel of your home can be an enormous undertaking. While we had a clear vision and design aesthetic in mind from the beginning, those visions ultimately needed to become reality through planning, construction and problem solving. Harlan oversaw those planning and construction aspects yet he was involved in all steps, small and large. Harlan has incredible eye for design!! His sophisticated eye and realtime ideas are noticeable in so many areas throughout our home. He listened to our ideas and ran with them, making them better in every aspect!! We thank Harlan, his incredible team (Thank you Jeff!! Thank you LEM!!) and his unwavering professionalism to quickly complete a challenging remodel into an amazing home for our family. We had such a wonderful experience with the Masterwork Team that we are now proud to call Harlan a good friend and he comes with our highest recommendation. The Charters.Read More

I strongly recommend Harlan for your next home remodel project!Read More

As a designer for the past 15 plus years, working with many contractors, I have to say Masterwork Builders is one of the best I've ever worked with and now a favorite. Harlan and the whole crew have been a true pleasure to work with, professionals from beginning to end. Always courteous, respectful, patient and eager to make sure the work was accurate and that we were happy with the results. With a long distance project, I expected additional stress due to misunderstandings, miscommunications and reworks. What we got, was a high level of communication, understanding, preparedness for site visits, follow up and craftsmanship, making this project one of the least stressful I've ever been involved with. Harlan's working knowledge of the city requirements was invaluable as he guided us to stay within the boundaries of possibilities and still achieve our wants, wishes and ideas. His ability to navigate the permits and different committees was priceless. Harlan really listened to assure a full understanding of our vision and offered creative solutions and recommendations to achieve our goals with the highest level of workmanship. The personal attention to so many unique details have made all the difference to the cottage immediately feeling like a well loved home and not a remodel. I would love to have Harlan and his crew on all my projects, they should all run so smoothly. Thanks guys! Lori Bliss- Designer Interior BlissRead More
