DESIGN + BUILD

The Living Stone Difference

For over 20 years, Living Stone Construction Inc. has been exceeding expectations through the renovation and new construction process for clients all over the country relocating to Western North Carolina.

During the great recession, Living Stone realized that in order to further increase value brought to the client, we were going to have to create a cost-competitive business model that extended beyond just the construction portion of the home.  We diagnosed each aspect of the building process and created a holistic approach through professional partnerships to offer a full service, turn-key construction company. We call it the Living Stone Difference.

Every home we build is Energy Star Certified by a 3rd party energy rater to the standards of NC Green Built, a voluntary, state-wide green building certification program supported by the North Carolina Solar Center, the State Energy Office, Home Builder Associations and other building professional organizations.

Every home we build is also certified Green. We do this as a standard because we believe in the importance of giving our client’s green homes. It’s been proven that not only do green homes sell faster and for more money but that people that live in green homes are happier, healthier and more productive. Let us show you how!

Our Philosophy

Living Stone offers what we feel all clients deserve, the ability to ENJOY the building process. By forming partnerships with like-minded realtors, architects, and engineers, we have been able to keep our overhead low, stream line the Critical Path, and add value to our client’s investment.  We encourage you to talk to our references and see for yourself what makes Living Stone Construction THE builder of choice.

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!

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

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 too a lot of the guess work out of it. It was a fun process for us. It really was!”

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

“Sean’s ability to effectively and efficiently communicate both in a way that not only gets the job done but gets it done with a commitment to excellence that has enabled him to be a leader among his building industry peers across North Carolina. I have known Sean for close to 10 years and have a great professional and personal admiration of his work and character.”
