Our Fantastic Experience with Gallup Design Build;
When looking for a custom builder, our goal was to find a builder that was experienced, paid attention to details, delivered on commitments, and responsive. To say that Gallup Design Build exceed our expectations would be an understatement.
Experience - Based upon a recommendation, we interviewed RB and Dick Gallup and quickly realized that they not only had experience, but also extreme passion for their work. This same experience guided us while we were selecting the lot, designing the home, and throughout the build process.
Attention to Detail - This was even more important because we lived remotely and could only visit the site every few months. RB was involved in the details, was on site, knew each of the contractors working on the house, and kept the quality build process on track. He was not only engaged in the flawless execution, but also provided great feedback on our thoughts/ideas that helped lead to a spectacular home.
Delivered on Commitments - As expected, challenges occur in any process and we were amazed by how RB gracefully viewed them as opportunities to be overcome (who would have thought COVID would have occurred?). The build was completed on time, within budget, and exceeded expectations on quality.
Responsive - Candidly, more than a few folks we interviewed initially, struggled with responsiveness. RB and team exceeded every expectation in this category. I cannot count the number of late night calls, weekend visits, or calls from me saying "I was thinking about ....". We looked forward to the daily updates and photos on the builder site which were hugely important to us as we were out of state.
Final Words: Exceeded our every expectation and we highly recommend!!!!!

Gallup Design Build truly turned our dreams into our perfect dream home. They provided a full service experience from the first consultation with Dick Gallup Sr. Who transformed my napkin drawings into reality. We visited home built by Gallup Design Build for a first hand customer review and saw the results up close. Every step was made easier as we were building in SC from NJ. The project manager RB Gallup sent detailed reports and photos of progress weekly and financial reports every month. The interior designer set up appointments with vendors for lighting, interior flooring, painting contractors, cabinets etc. Gallup Design Build work with custom carpenters to build our specific requirements for mantels, customized closets and design elements. Work was done to the timeline they promised. They worked with the budget provided and made every effort to source the best materials. When we requested materials not available in the South they worked with us to help obtain, deliver and install special stonework. This was the first home we ever built and Gallup Design Build made the whole process work so effortlessly that I would not hesitate to recommend them with the upmost confidence.

Best custom home builder in SC. Great customer service and trust worthy. Have had a custom home built and a renovation of an old home and each project was well executed and on point. Would use again 110%!

We are thrilled with and grateful for the home that you built for us. Moving from a smaller home into one that is not only the right size for us now, but allows for an addition later, has given us a chance to relax and enjoy our time at home.
From our initial meeting with Dick, to interior design ideas by Elaine, to final punch out and move in, our experience has been not only pleasant, but surprising, at each stage. The pleasant experience was expected, but after speaking to others that have built their homes, we feared the stress and anxiety of construction process. The surprising aspect of our experience was how much we enjoyed building. We were able to inject our preferences where we felt comfortable and in cases where our understanding was limited, we leaned on Dick's knowledge and were given great insight and choices without overwhelming us with information and leaving us on our own. The support by Elaine considering the number of finish options to choose from was invaluable. Elaine locked into our tastes early and eliminated choices for us that would have only confused us and consumed our time.
Our move in was made easier by the brevity of our punch list, which is a credit to the sub-contractors on the job. Our home is a place we envision spending the next 25 years. Thanks to the Gallup Design Build team, it is a source of pride and accomplishment today and the holder of essential time and future memories together as a family.

It is our distinct pleasure to recommend Gallup Design & Build organization for any custom home construction. We were able to "downsize" from a five bedroom home to a three bedroom home and include many of the features we loved in the former home. The original plans were adjusted to accommodate our wishes. The sub-contractors were easy to work with, the various vendors were helpful in our fixture selection and the interior decorator guided us in making good choices. If you want a beautiful home you cannot do better than Gallup Design Build.

Sharon and I have now been in our Gallup Design Build designed home for about six years. The longer that we live here, the more we enjoy the house. Your design of our home flows well with our style of living and is certainly to a human scale that suits us. It is a great house for casual quite living and also for entertaining. Thank you for working so closely with us throughout the design and construction period.

"Many thanks to the great team at Gallup Design Build for the wonderful job they have done on our new home in Timberlake Plantation. What more can you ask than a good job completed on time and within the budget? My particular thanks goes out to R B Gallup for his absolute commitment to a quality result and for his skillful management of all the subs and vendors. His dedication to the project was obvious from the first day and continued on until he handed us a the keys at completion."

"Contracted with Gallup Design Build to design and construct our craftsman style home. What sold us on this company was their total turn key solution, from idea / design phase to the completed home built to our specs. Other selling points were their quality of construction, attention to detail, the detailed project schedule they provided, their estimation / budget process, and their reputation from other clients. While the construction of our home lasted about 10 months, we were fully engaged along the way -- and we wanted to be engaged. Once construction was complete, our project manager, R.B. Gallup, worked aggressively to address the outstanding issues on the punch list. Overall, it was a very positive experience. While it was the fifth home we have built, and our fourth custom home and the most detailed of the four, Gallup Design Build did an excellent job of helping us get the home we wanted with the details we wanted while also working within a budget."
