This includes lot selection, furnishings, and comprehensive warranties, and they ensure that every aspect of the new dwelling is built to Living Stone’s exacting standards.

They diagnosed each and every aspect of the building process, and introduced a holistic approach that included professional partnerships, full service, and turn-key construction. They call this the ‘Living Stone difference’. Every home they build is certified as green, L as standard, because they believe wholeheartedly in the importance of providing clients with green homes. It has been proven that green homes sell faster, and that the people who live in them are happier, healthier, and more productive. All values Living Stone believes in sincerely.
