Daren Pinkerton

Sean and Frank have done excellent work in the community and have a great reputation so there was no where else we would go but to them when it was time to build our new home.

I don’t know why someone would not choose Living Stone to build their home. It is such a polished production that gives you a polished complete finish. You have no doubt that the product you have is the house you dreamed of!

-RICH SEFCIK

Gary Holstein

The energy efficiency of the house has made it very comfortable through some very extreme weather and our energy bills have been remarkably low. The energy star rating of the home has really paid off. Truly, I haven’t had energy costs this low in 20 years.

-GARY HOLSTEIN

Paula Bruder

I couldn’t be more pleased. Michael and I feel like we are on vacation, every time we walk into the kitchen. Frank and all the crew has really made this project go smoothly, and I can’t thank Living Stone enough.

-PAULA BRUDER

Bonnie Holstein

I have to comment on everyone’s integrity. Everyone has been of the highest caliber and truly made us feel like they care about us as people, our satisfaction and that we are getting a home, not just a house. I rate every aspect of this process, every member of this team and every subcontractor, an A plus!

-BONNIE HOLSTEIN

Sarah Watkins Testimonial

“Building can be stressful. You put the money thing on top of all the details of building, and that puts a lot of strain on people. Living Stone took a lot of the guess work out of it. It was a fun process for us. It really was!”

SARAH WATKINS

The Transitional Craftsman for George and Stanlee

It’s special, it’s wonderful and I keep pinching myself because I cannot believe that this is our home.  Living Stone Construction, headed by Sean Sullivan more than met our expectations. They hit a grand slam out of the ball park. This house is amazing!

-STANLEE STAHL

Dr. Steve Levine Testimonial

“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.”

-DR. STEVE LEVINE
