Anne and I engaged Scott Quaintance and his team from Carolina Bluewater Construction to build our Beach House at Sunset Beach, NC in the summer of 2021. Our decision to go with Carolina Bluewater was due to the recommendations of previous customers and the wonderful houses that we had seen built by Scott. Although we had to wait a bit to begin construction because of the popularity of CBC, it was absolutely worth the wait.
Scott and his team worked with us throughout the process in the construction of our 5 Bedroom-6 Bathroom beach house. The planning and construction occurred right in the middle of the Pandemic and during very restrictive supply chain conditions. Nonetheless, Scott and CBC delivered our house on time and exceeded our expectations in every respect.
The finished millwork in our house was extraordinary with attention to detail in every room. We knew the ceiling that we wanted was going to be challenging from the beginning, but the Carolina Bluewater team turned our vision into the statement effect we wanted to achieve.
Scott’s team led by Jennifer and the various subcontractors met every need, answered our questions, and delivered every time. Scott and Jennifer were very accommodating to our many questions and desires, providing much needed flexibility for our decisions. The walkthrough by Scott at the conclusion of construction was most professional and the manner in which CBC performed the “punch list” at post-delivery was easy and superbly accommodating. We cannot say enough good things about Scott and his team.
We are delighted with our new beach house and highly recommend CBW to others looking for a well-constructed house through a great and “flexible” process. Thanks, Scott and CBW!~ Anne and Bob Dail
Our vacation home story begins with a golf cart ride while vacationing on Ocean Isle Beach, NC in the summer of 2016. We kept noticing beautiful homes being built all over the island with Carolina Bluewater Construction signs posted on the projects. We stopped and toured a home under construction and noted the design, the high quality of the work in the home and the professionalism of the workers on the job. We live in the mountains of Western North Carolina and wanted to have a place near the coast for our family to enjoy. Taking on a long distance project like this can be a bit daunting but Scott Quaintance immediately put our mind at ease with his efficient and organized approach to building. Coming highly recommended, Scott was able to provide all services we needed in one stop. He designs/draws all of his homes from the ground up and each one is unique. Scott has a degree in civil engineering and that is certainly a big plus when building on the coast. He gave us an exact start date and finish date and actually finished one week early. Jennifer kept us on track with all of our critical decisions so that we did not hold anyone up. She took us around to the various vendors we needed to visit and was a great help with all of our decision making. Scott was right on target with our project costs and gave us very liberal allowances where we could save in some categories when we needed to. Woody, photographer for Carolina Bluewater Construction, provided us with weekly pictures of the progress of the house and an exquisite portfolio of pictures at the end. These folks have a very streamlined process which makes efficient use of everyone’s time during the project. Jennifer and Scott were always gracious with their time to answer text, emails or even phone calls when we had questions. Our ideas were incorporated into the project and the suggestions from Jennifer and Scott were invaluable. We continue to recommend and sing the praises of Carolina Bluewater Construction to all of our friends and family who visit our home and see what a wonderful job was done.

CBC built our dream oceanfront home on Ocean Isle and did a fabulous job! Every aspect of the process was done with exceptional care and professionalism. The design process was very easy since Scott has such a multitude of floor plans in his portfolio to start with. He had great ideas and made all our wants and needs become a reality. The building process was very organized and they kept to their timeline. Jennifer was integral in helping us select items that we needed in an efficient and organized manner. We enjoyed working with all the vendors and sub-contractors. We did not have one disagreement with them throughout the whole process. Woody kept us updated with photos which was very helpful. Our home was completed in May 2019 and we have been thoroughly enjoying it. We stayed through Hurricane Isaias this year and did not have one bit of damage from the storm. A true testament to the quality of the builder!~ Karen Sutton - Ocean Isle Beach
Scott Quaintance and his team at Carolina Bluewater Construction have just completed our new home as of the first of October 2014. My husband and I are extremely pleased with everything and can honestly say that we have never worked with a better group of people. Scott is so talented and wonderful, such a professional in every aspect. He was continually several steps ahead of us and caught things before we did. He was always willing to meet with us as often as necessary and discuss any changes or concerns that we might have had. His work ethic is beyond anything we could have imagined or asked for. You could tell that he really enjoyed the entire process of building our new home for us. Scott truly made you feel as though you were his only clients. Jennifer, our coordinator, walked us through everything from the appliances to the wood flooring and everything in-between. Not only was Jennifer's expertise invaluable but she was also excellent at keeping us on budget. She had a special way of getting us through the arduous task of making the difficult decisions as to which faucets, tiles, granite, lighting, flooring, etc., to choose. It was overwhelming at times but she was always so calm and very helpful, therefore making this a pleasurable experience. Woody, the photographer was amazing as he would keep us updated each Friday with pictures of the house through each stage. This was very exciting since we were not there to see the progress from day to day. Many thanks also to Heather and to Bruce. Who are also a part of this exceptional team. We are looking forward to many wonderful, happy and exciting years in our Ocean Isle Beach home thanks to Carolina Bluewater Construction. I simply can't praise them all enough!~ Kay and Mike O'Neill
This was the third home I have been a part of building, and while I live 9 hours away, his team kept me informed weekly through a wonderful website of photos and narratives. I felt a part of the construction process. Carolina Bluewater is meticulous with every step in the construction process, making sure that the homeowner is kept apprised of each aspect. Scott uses high quality materials in his construction, thus his finished product is a home that is not only beautiful, but one which will withstand the harsh elements of coastal living. I highly recommend Carolina Bluewater Construction!

we couldn’t have been more impressed or happier with everyone on the team. Scott is a genius and was able to answer every question and address every need immediately. Jennifer is wonderful and probably the most efficient person we’ve ever met. She made even the hardest building decisions easy and pleasurable. Woody went above and beyond to make sure we had beautiful pictures of the process to post each week so everyone could watch the progress right along with us. We rented the entire summer season before the house was even finished and this is a testimony to the absolutely perfect blend of professionals and their exceptional building process. I would have Scott and his team build ANYTHING for us…they are just that good. We can’t thank you enough for creating a great place to develop a lifetime of wonderful memories for our family and friends. You guys are the best!

First beach home, first home over 800 miles away, first time building with Scott. Scott came highly recommended to us and we thankfully looked no further after our first meeting. From the first rough drawings to the ON TIME completion, every step was thorough, orchestrated seamlessly, and immensely enjoyable. The design, the materials, the workmanship......everything is high quality and built to last. Building so far away, when you can't just jump in a car to go and check things out, can be stressful.....but we never felt that stress. Emails and phone calls were always promptly returned and the weekly photo updates were a priceless tool which allowed us to see the quality and the progress. Scott, an extraordinary architect, has a phenomenal eye for the esthetics, the details, the character that makes a house warm and inviting....a (dream) home. We are so happy that, if given the opportunity to build again, he will be our first and only call.~ Ree O'Brien
From the first meeting we knew that Scott was our builder. The process was as easy as it gets and we are delighted with our new home. A bank inspector told us that ours' was the most soildly built home he has ever inspected.
Thank you Scott and thanks to your invaluable assistant Jennifer Nash.

It has been a real pleasure to deal with people where their word and handshake mean as much or more than any contract written on a piece of paper.
Thank you for making our home even more special & unique. You're an extraordinary father & son team.~ Richie & Rosie Guastella - Wyndfall
The entire process of building a home went just as smoothly. The details can be overwhelming! We loved that they were eager to please and wanted nothing but for us to say at the end of the construction phone - "Wow"! We definitely did - right down to the dog cubby in our entry hallway. Every member of the team that is Carolina Bluewater Construction is so talented and a true delight to work with. So much so that we've named our beach cottage "Bluewater Blessing". We are very excited and look forward to many happy memories with family and friends in the years to come. Cheers from Holden Beach.

Being four hours and 200 miles away, we were happy to find that we could trust Scott to consider our best interest in every issue that came up. He was able to tell us in the beginning how many trips we would need to plan and what details we would need to decide on each trip. No question ever came up that Scott was not prepared to answer. We were amazed at how clean and orderly the job site was when we made "unannounced" visits.
We have built eight or ten homes in our lifetimes and our experience with Scott was by far the smoothest and produced the best final result. We could not be more pleased!"

"Over a year ago,we started the process of picking a builder to build our dream home. We did telephone interviews of 18 builders,then personally interviewed 10 of those. We narrowed the list down to 5, then 3,finally deciding on you and your company. Our primary concerns were finding a builder with honesty, integrity and experience,especially as we were building long distance. You fit the criteria and what really sealed the deal was the rave reviews we heard from your former clients.~ Lynne and Ron Curr - Lands End, Supply
"I can't say enough about how happy we were with our building experience with Scott Quaintance. We had been involved in several other building experiences, homes and commercial buildings, ground up and remodels, and Scott was absolutely the best builder we ever worked with.~ Linda Hester, Sunset Beach Mainland
