My husband and I are so happy that we decided to build with Stone Cottage! We looked at several homes/builders over the past few years before finding the perfect layout. We were impressed with the quality of craftsmanship in the Stone Cottage models. Troy and Lindsey really listened to what we wanted in a home and helped us create a plan that suited our needs. If we had questions or concerns Lindsey responded in a timely manner. We liked being informed about each step in the building process. The selections process was really fun and the designers were very helpful. Over all we are pleased with our building experience with Stone Cottage and would recommend them.
Thank you again for your assistance with the purchase of the Stone Cottage Construction home last Fall. I spoke with my buyers last week and they are thrilled to be settled and loving the home. As you recall, my buyers had purchased in Bloomington a few years ago. They called me because they went through this home at an open house and immediately fell in love with it. We scheduled a showing and confirmed their interest. I want to put it in print how “beyond pleased” I am with how the process went. I’ve worked with other builders and Stone Cottage has set a high bar from quality of workmanship as well as outstanding service. I’m still telling agents and buyers about the most thorough walk through I’ve ever been on. Still can’t believe that the owner walked through and not only offered detailed explanations of everything that had been done, but also addressed requests down to touch up of paint. There are absolutely no outstanding projects and if you’ve dealt with new builds, you know how rare that is. Your assistance was key too Sheryl. I appreciate your attention to detail and willingness to work with my buyers timing of the sale of their home. Great experience all the way around and would be more than happy to field any/all calls from prospects or agents.
Once we decided to build our home, we began the process of looking for a builder who had the workmanship, quality and style of home we wanted. We also needed to find a custom builder so we could design it exactly as we wanted. This was going to be our forever home, so we took our time going to open houses, Parade Of Homes, and online shopping. We built our first home in Lakeville in 1989, so we were very familiar with what was ahead of us. We had appointments with several other builders, then walked into one of Stone Cottage’s models. We were greeted by Sheryl and felt an instant connection with her. She was very knowledgeable of Stone Cottage’s models, lots, materials, etc. We then met with Troy and quickly decided that this was the builder we wanted to work with, and who would work with us, as we intended to do some of the work ourselves. Stone Cottage was one of the few builders who agreed to that. We found our lot out in the country, and Troy met us there to determine if this was a good lot, where to put the house, etc. His expertise was invaluable. We visited the build site every day to see what had been accomplished. We got to know some of the workers as we were very involved in the process. Once we were ready to do some of the work ourselves, Troy and Brian were very accommodating letting us know when we should be done with what we were doing (laying tile and Installing the Wirsbo for example) so not to slow down the next set of workers who were scheduled to be at the house. We love our new home, the people we worked with, the designers who helped us pick out the finishes inside and out, Troy, Sheryl and Brian who worked side by side with us to help us not only envision our new home, but helped make it happen. We highly recommend Stone Cottage to anyone who is looking for a custom home builder.
