  1. REAL ESTATE: We partner with the most knowledgeable realtors to help you locate the building lot, or home, that is perfect for you.
  2. PLAN DESIGN: We partner with the most creative architects. In this way, we have input on design specifications, finishes, and square footages to ensure the design always fits your budget.
  3. DESIGN / BUILDING PERFORMANCE: We partner with building scientists who perform an evaluation before we ever begin construction. These scientists conduct tests, energy modeling, and obtain energy discounts, saving money for the life of your home.
  4. CONSTRUCTION: We compose a detailed estimate of your project and then track the actual cost through the end of construction. With a dedicated supervisor on your project, you are assured to receive the highest quality and greatest value for your investment.
  5. SELECTION COORDINATOR: Our interior design partner offers excellent recommendations for finishes that will give you a more beautiful and functional home. Maximizing energy efficiencies (with treatments) and controlling indoor air quality (with proper finishes and furnishings) are two vital parts of our success and savings process.
  1. COMMUNICATION: All of our projects are managed through a sophisticated software system, complete with a mobile App for your phone. All communication, scheduling, selections, financials, and comprehensive information are channeled through this software so you never miss a deadline or budget update.
  2. FINANCING: We are proud to present the missing piece of the construction puzzle by partnering with banking institutions that will provide the lowest rates and fees while at the same time giving you a quick pre-qualification.
  3. WARRANTY: In addition to our 20+ years of building an impeccable reputation of excellence and value, we also give our clients peace of mind by offering a third party transferable (10 year) home warranty on all new homes.

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!


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.


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!


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.”


Frank Wiesner

“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.”

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.


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.


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!”
