Little Jewel

On our trip to beautiful Key West last spring, we found our “diamond in the rough”. The home needed structural work, two new bathrooms, and a major interior facelift. Living 1500 miles away, we had our concerns about finding someone to complete a first-class job. After two rounds of quotes and interviews with numerous contractors, we were fortunate enough to have chosen Barracuda Builders. Bryan’s professionalism, knowledge, and easygoing nature impressed immediately.

We received our permits and about one week later, Irma struck. At the end of September, Bryan met us at our home. He did a complete inspection and fortunately, there was no major damage. By the first week in October, his crew started demolition. A foreman responsible for our project was on site every day. As with most renovations, numerous changes and problems were encountered. Bryan brought them to our attention and helped provide solutions. Attention to detail, frequent communication with Cheryl in the office, and his crew on-site and subcontractors gave us confidence that nothing was being overlooked.

We are grateful that from Day One, the Barracuda team treated our home with care and attention. Work continued nonstop until our project was completed in March of this year. Renovating a home from a distance is never easy. Barracuda Builders' performance exceeded anything we could have hoped for. We highly recommend them to anyone considering a renovation, big or small. Bryan and his team made our house the “little jewel” it is today. We can’t thank them enough!!

The Dream Team

When we bought our house in Love Lane (unseen off the web) we had no idea how much love, care, and attention she would need. We gave Barracuda Builders a shell–they gave us back an award-winning masterpiece.

From our initial meeting, proprietor Bryan was enthusiastic. He invested time preparing a comprehensive breakdown of work and costs. He believed in our vision and, being a local, brought valuable knowledge to the project.

He didn't shield us from bad news–and there were lots (this old lady needed more than a facelift…she needed a whole new body!). Forever positive, he’d always offer solutions with our budget in mind. Nothing felt insurmountable.

The craftsmanship of his team and their attention to detail was first-class–and we have high standards! They were courteous, helpful and showed great respect to our house. We always felt they had our best interests at heart.

Nothing was too much trouble for assistant project manager Cheryl. She was meticulous with details and had a great eye for sourcing stuff she knew we’d like–and was happy to manage our never-ending deliveries to her office.

The entire team made this project a success. Even after the renovation was done, they’d help us build furniture and hang artwork to turn our house into a home. The project was brought in on budget–and house left spotlessly clean.

We are appreciative of their endeavors–and others are too. This month, their hard work, dedication, and craftsmanship were recognized when our house won a prestigious Historic Florida Keys Foundation Restoration Award.

That speaks volumes about Bryan and his team–the Dream Team. We cannot recommend them highly enough and sincerely hope we get to work with them again soon.

Quality and Thoughtfulness

Hi, I wanted to compliment the employees you had working here at the KW Garden Club.
These young men were not only competent in their job but were also polite and went out of their way to make my job, visitors romping around, as well as our wedding events easy for us during the work. The meeting room looks great, and I thank them again for quality and thoughtfulness.

Superb

To Whom It May Concern:

This is to inform you that we recently hired Barracuda Builders of Key West, Inc. to do extensive spalling repair to our home.

The working crew was at our home almost daily for over 5 weeks. There was much work to be done and they had many challenges. The men were professional, polite, and knew what they were doing. We were most impressed during the whole process with the fact that DAILY they took the time at the end of the working period to clean up after themselves. Spalling repair is messy work. It was a wonderful surprise and a great relief to be able to look out on their work each day after they left and see no detritus or dust anywhere they had been working. Then, when they had finished an area of repair, the finishing work was superb. The stucco work is so nice it seems almost a crime to put a coat of paint on it.

Dealing with Bryan Wofsey was a delight. He was on-site often to supervise and to make sure his men had what they needed. We cannot recommend this company for spalling work and general construction (which was also contracted for another project on the house) highly enough. It was money very well spent.

Most Beautiful Store on Duval

I hired Barracuda Builders this past fall to buildout Tucker's Provisions. The project involved complete renovation by transforming an old pizzeria into a brand new retail concept. Every aspect of the space–from the facade to the floors to the walls to the ceiling to electrical to HVAC to plumbing–required significant work. Making the project more complicated, the space is effectively three separate spaces/buildings as a result of add-ons throughout several decades. The results being that there were issues well beyond the standard obstacles generally encountered with a historic property.

Certainly the designers helped with many of these obstacles, but there were several key crossroads where Barracuda's team led the project down the best path. Bryan was always available and ready to handle whatever hurdles suddenly appeared–whether bringing in additional crew or a last minute meeting with the city building department–as can be so common in such a project. Although we failed to make our initial time goals, the end result speaks for itself. Since opening, we are told on a daily basis that we have the most beautiful store on Duval Street.
