By designing green we set your project up for success. It is important to take into consideration all the practices that will be used to ensure that you have a healthy, green home from the very beginning.
Over the last 20 years Living Stone Construction has been exceeding expectations through the renovation and new construction process for clients all over the country relocating to Western North Carolina.
"The energy star rating of our home has really paid off. Truly I haven’t had energy costs this low in over 20 years." Gary Holstein
It makes sense to build smart! What we build for you will give you a return on your investment with significantly lower utility bills, as well as transferable discounts on your power bills for the life of the home.
The process of design+build and creating something that is so energy efficient is a miracle to me. Sean has a way of putting things together so that we get the product that we want and then he puts together the quality product that he knows he can build.
Having worked together on an award winning home, I found Sean and his team to be attentive to the quality of construction, committed to incorporating sustainable building practices and materials, and thorough in tracking costs.
With Sean and Laura’s design-and-build business model, we knew exactly what was going on. It was helpful as far as keeping us on point for the amount we’d budgeted for each part of the house. It was very transparent and reasonable to me, more so than with other builders. We knew what we were getting.
This house is absolutely amazing. It is everything I ever wanted in a home. I have not found one flaw in my house built by Living Stone; everything is done to perfection. Everything.
We needed a top notch team to do this renovation smoothly from long distance and Living Stone delivered in spades. We are thrilled with our results and glad we trusted Living Stone with our home. Many thanks to Sean, Frank and the Living Stone Team.
Living Stone’s trade partners were some of the best subcontractors I’ve worked with. It was very much a family unit.
In working with Living Stone we witnessed an excellent and thorough estimate, honesty and reliability, superb workmanship, fantastic communication and an all around great job! We would build with Living Stone again as well as refer them.
Sean doesn’t want you to move in unless everything is absolutely perfect,” she said. “He just has to have everything perfect. And I like everything perfect as well. We were a match made in heaven.
Sean’s knowledge of building practices and principles, conceptually and practically, really impressed me. I eventually saw his work in person and was blown away by the craftsmanship…
The building supervision was good. The communication was good. We didn’t have any problems with the billing. It was really easy, which is almost unheard of in a construction…

A timeless setting
The first thing you notice about French Broad Crossing (FBC) is the exquisite Western North Carolina setting: pure, pristine, secluded, and in perfect harmony with the lush, densely forested hills that form a natural amphitheater of majesty and timeless beauty. Residents here liken it “to living in one’s own national park,” yet it’s just a short drive from the dynamic city of Asheville, NC. Indeed, much of the land at FBC is permanently preserved, held in conservation to prevent further development. Families are drawn to an idyllic living experience that can be passed down to future generations, in the same undisturbed state that exists today. It is here, against the backdrop of ancient rolling mountains and the mighty French Broad River—third oldest river in the world according to geologists—that the new 2016 Southern Living Inspired Home will reside.
