Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have your own design team?
Our homes and estates are heirloom quality. As such we work with the best architects, interior designers, and landscape architects. We help you select who is ideally suited for your vision based on the specialty of the designers.
What is a Preconstruction Services Agreement (PSA)?
Prepare and sign a detailed cost agreement that outlines the work that BlueStone Construction will perform to design your home, assembling a team consisting of the builder, architect, interior designer, and of course you, the client. We coordinate the process, manage and supervise the team, and produce final construction documents, full specifications, and a firm budget.
