Interiors by Design

Space Planning & Interior Design

The perfect environment is the result of vision and thoughtful planning down to the window treatments and kitchen tile. Working with our preferred design partner will ensure that your home reflects your tastes and lifestyle and considers your health, comfort, and budget. Together, we can ensure that all the little details like wall colors, fixtures, lighting, and furnishings, will only enhance the big picture.

DEFINING USE, LAYOUT, AND  APPEARANCE – Rooms are so much more than four walls. Lets us take you through a process that allows you to consider the traffic flow and needs of each area of your custom built home.

STRUCTURE & FOCAL POINTS – Make a stunning first impression. We help you think through and plan the stand out features of your home.

MAXIMIZING VIEWS – Western North Carolina is one of the most beautiful mountain settings in the United States. Many of the homes we design and build have exceptional views. It’s important to plan even the soft furnishings in a room to accentuate how you take in the mountain overlook!

THE LITTLE THINGS – Where will that lamp plug in and is there a table exactly where you enjoy your morning coffee? You just relax…we will curate everything so you don’t have to.

BUDGET IN STYLE – Our process allows for custom interior design at any budget. We look at the overall budget of your build, and recommend a responsible and effective allocation while considering all possibilities.

“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 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.”

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!

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.


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.”

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 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.


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!


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!”
