Bluestone guides families through the design, build & preservation of unique, authentic, high quality homes with seamless project management. As your builder, we assemble the best team (from realtors to architects) to realize your vision. Our quality is so impeccable that we offer a three-year warranty with the option of on-going maintenance through the life of your home.

Seamless Management

(from beginning to end)

Building your dream home can stressful if the communication between the designer, builder, and owner is not managed well. What separates Bluestone Construction from most builders is that we manage a project from design to preservation so that you have one point of consistent contact for the life of your home.

Our Business Was Designed With You In Mind

We know that you live a busy life, the innumerable details required to design, build and maintain custom homes on top of everything else you already do can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. The experience <em>should</em> be powerful, enlightening and inspired. You are crafting your lifestyle; that should be exhilarating. Our process begins with understanding what you need, want, and aspire-to. The process ends when you are living the best version of your vision.We are so confident in our quality and service that we offer a 3 year warranty (industry standard is one). Beyond three years, we want to be the people you call when you need to paint a room, extend the office, or maintain the garden. The homes we build are sacrosanct; you can see by our testimonials that when you build with Bluestone your project will be on time, on budget, and will continue to inspire for generations. How do you want to tell your lasting story? We want to know.
