Client Testimonials

Our clients tell us they chose Creative Spaces Remodeling for a variety of reasons such as trust, integrity, quality of workmanship and most importantly, our passion for taking care of their home and their family during the entire construction process.

John and his team at Creative Spaces were great to work with, they helped us every step of the way throughout the entire process. My husband and I felt comfortable in creating and renovating a portion of our property by relying on their expertise. Happy New Year to the Team!

Project Price Range: more than $100,000


I have followed John’s company and work for several years. When I visited his featured home in our regional home magazine, I could clearly tell his craftsmanship and design capabilities. That’s why he was my only bid when I needed a new custom deck.

Meeting with JOHN and his design team was simple and organized. His process is efficient and client centric. Not only did we discuss What we were looking for, but Why and How we would use it. We discussed and debated various options, but it was always focused on what we wanted.

Contract and payments were well thought out, and construction began on time. There were some permit-related delays, which were beyond their control. Our custom deck was complex, using the best materials. It has turned out to be just what we hoped and we have added a wonderful outdoor space to enhace our living space and our home value. We can’t wait for Spring!

We highly recommend Creative Spaces Remodeling. They have the team, the process, the quality and the value to add to your home ownership dreams!

Steve Hall – November 2017
Project Price: $50,000 – $100,000


We selected Creative Solutions based on Houzz reviews (initially) and our meetings with their designer, Lindsay Keiser, and owner John Johnson. We also had a lengthy call with a client. Ours was a major remodel of a plain 1980’s house on an incredible wooded site over looking the Chesapeake. An overarching challenge was that we live close to 1000 miles from the site and travel across the US and abroad for our work. We couldn’t be there for consults and to view the project on a regular basis. We really needed to trust our general contractor. But, we also had strong design ideas and preferences so communication and mutual understanding was essential. All projects of this scale will encounter unforeseen challenges, and ours was no exception. John and his team cared. Their vision of quality is aligned with ours, and their focus on the client made us glad we selected this firm. The project scope included a major redesign and expansion of the great room, complete re-configuring and remake of the kitchen, vaulting the master bedroom ceiling and conversion of a bedroom into a library and guest room, new entry, all new hardwood and tile floors on both levels, and the addition of a solarium/greenhouse alongside the dining area. The results are stunning and bring the beauty of the site into home. We are planning phase 2 to finalize the overall makeover and will continue to work with the Creative Spaces team.

I’ve been working with John, Alex and the whole team at CSR and I’ve been completely impressed with their professionalism, attention to detail, and compassion for their clients (and contractors.) They strive to make sure the client is informed and comfortable with every step of the process from design through construction. They use software to give their clients constant updates on the progress of their project which alleviates a lot of stress on the clients side. They have my utmost confidence!

I have been working with John, Alex and the Creative Spaces remodeling team for years and I can’t tell you how impressed I am with their industry knowledge, collective teamwork, professionalism, integrity and attention to detail. My wife and I are looking for an extensive master bathroom remodel in 2018 and our contractor of choice will be Creative Spaces. I know their work will reflect my vision as well as be done with care, on time and within budget. Its Creative Spaces Remodeling for me!!

Michael Sanders, Annapolis, MD


Eight months later and we are still enthralled. I’ve had two other contractors for jobs on this house, but this is the first contractor that I’ve ever had that I’ve felt even better about after the job than before. The job was done on budget and on time, and the contractor stayed on top of it and communicated well with us the whole time. And then he threw us a party. Just last month our shower developed a small faucet drip, he sent someone out to fix it, no questions asked. Only contractor that I have ever had that I would recommend wholeheartedly to my friends.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with John as a subcontractor. Having had the opportunity of the last 30 plus years to work with many contractors, I feel confident in saying that both John and his team are a refreshing combination of honesty, creativity and excellent communication skills that when combined, dramatically increase the likelihood of a successful project from start to finish. I would feel confident recommending John and Creative Spaces Remodeling to anyone that is looking for a quality job at a fair price.

Dear Mr. Johnson, My husband and I want to thank you and express our appreciation for the beautiful and professional work your company did in selecting and installing our pullout kitchen drawers. Your estimates concerning the cost and time-frame for installation were right on the mark. We might also add that the worksite was spotless when the job was completed. Needless to say, we would be more than happy to recommend you to our friends and neighbors. It is nice to know a general contractor who is fair and honest.
