Building can be a challenge for those coming to the mountains. Most clients have no understanding of the complexity and the cost of building in the mountains.

We believe that the perfect home starts with design, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be complicated. We have partnered with designers to create ideal plans that can quickly be modified, to any extent, at a fraction of what an architect would charge.

Because we have a foundational knowledge of these plans, they require less financial resources and time to build again.

Custom Design + Build

Not all lots (or views) were created equal. If you want that perfect mountain build, then we need to design the ideal home to fit your lot. There are many factors to consider when designing a home in the mountains:

  • Orientation
  • View
  • Topography
  • Function
  • Cost

We partner with top architects who will meet with us in our office to design the perfect home for you. Check out some of our most recent custom projects.

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.


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.


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.”


Rich Sefcik

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!


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.”

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!”


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!


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.


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!
