Welcome to our new Blog!

We decided it was time to let everyone know about the great work that has been going on at Stonewood. In addition to updating our portfolio, we wanted to create a site that is clearer, easier to navigate, and most importantly a site that includes content that will provide value to our clients. Over the next several months we will be adding content in the form of articles, links, and presentations related to important topics in the design and construction industry. This is the first post of this new section of the site called Blog. Hope you like it and please share your thoughts with us by commenting on each post.

The Gustafson family, founders of Stonewood, have come to be known not only as a builders of fine new homes, but also as a renovators of older historic homes.  “We’ve always done remodeling for past clients and friends, but since 2001 we have a seperate division devoted soley to remodeling.” Sven Gustafson, President

This project entailed the complete renovation of a home built in 1890 and the addition of 3500 sq. ft.   Stonewood was able to restore this home to it’s original character, undoing the mistakes of many past remodels.  Only the shell remained after our demolition.  We were able to source the stone and roofing form the original manufacturers and quarries.  A very rewarding project.
