Meet the Team
“Being absentee clients we needed to use a company that was professional, efficient and just got the job done with the minimum of fuss. Roddy popped into Stonewood and was welcomed by Brendan and Belinda. Thus our journey began. Brendan and Belinda listened to his requirements and a plan was selected that met our specifications.
The following week we popped in and Scott and Belinda, with her colour consulting and interior design skills, helped guide us in selecting materials, units, colours and floor coverings for the build. We then poppoed down the road to the electricians to sort out lighting and socket placements and select the fittings. Believe us - IT WAS THAT SIMPLE! Throughout the build Scott and the team kept us up to speed with the build’s progress, which we could also track online at any stage with our own personal progress building graph. Any queries or changes were dealt with promptly and efficiently, either via email or by phone. We were handed the keys to our new farm cottage just last week, completely finished, in a spotless condition and ready to occupy.
Roddy and I bought our dream home in Central Otago a year go. Had we known then what we know now, we would have commissioned Stonewood Homes to design and build our dream home. Next time! We highly recommend anybody considering a new build of any kind to use Stonewood Homes, if you want a stress free and enjoyable experience. Nothing was too much trouble for our customer service team. Always friendly and approachable, constantly keeping us informed throughout the whole process from concept to completion.
Congratulations Stonewood on a job well done! It has been our pleasure dealing with a company of such integrity and professionalism.”
“After approximately 12 months of changing out minds every second week about whether to build or buy we finally made the decision to build. Stonewood was our first choice as they came highly recommended by friends.
We lead very busy lives and I always thought that building would be one more stressful job that I didn’t need to deal with. When I voiced this to Brendan he assured me that he and his team would just “get in and get it done” and all we had to do was pay the bill! That was exactly what I was hoping to hear so we made the decision and the first spade hit the dirt approximately one week later.
Stonewood and all of their contractors were brilliant to deal with and as far as I am concerned their workmanship and professionalism is second to none. We were all moved in approximately one month ahead of schedule and being able to track the build progress online was always exciting.
Personally I like Stonewood’s “nothing is a problem” attitude and I’m sure that this is one of the main reasons why they are such a successful business. We would highly recommend the Stonewood Invercargill team to anyone looking to build a new home.
A huge thanks to Stonewood for the stress free build and our stunning new home.”
“Stonewood was awesome to work with from start to finish. We spent a lot of time planning the layout of the house and nothing was a problem for Brendan. He listened carefully to what we wanted and altered the plans many times without hesitation until we were 100% happy with the end product.
Stonewood is quality driven and that showed at the end when the house was handed over, Everything was built to a high quality standard. The team Brendan put together was great in every way, nice people who delivered quality work. It was enjoyable to see.
We highly recommend Brendan and his team at Stonewood to everybody who is considering building a new house. For us it was a pleasant experience from start to finish and all completed within budget and the planned time schedule. Well done to Brendan and his team!”
“We have recently just finished building a new home with Brendan and the team at Stonewood Invercargill. It was a design of our own and we are really pleased with the end result. Brendan and his whole team are very professional and extremely helpful and go out of their way to make the whole process pleasant, stress free and were great to work with.
The speed of the build in no way compromised the high standard and quality of workmanship that was done throughout. We would recommend Brendan and all his team to anyone wanting to build a new house and we would happily build with them again.
We thank Brendan and all his team for the great job that they did for us.”
“Building a new home can be a daunting process, especially if you have never done it before. After considering several quotations we decided to accept Stonewood Homes Invercargil Ltd’s offer.
Our decision to go with Stonewood was mainly based on three considerations:
1. A very competitive price.
2. They gave the most comprehensive and completequotation.
3. The favourable recommendation of others who had already built with Stonewood.
Having made that crucial decision, we were not disappointed. Once started, the construction progressed at a steady and uninterrupted pace and was bought to a very satisfactory conclusion. We were impressed with the enthusiasm of the tradesmen employed and the quality of their work. The Stonewood staff assigned to manage the project were pleasant to deal with. They kept us regularly informed at each stage of the construction process and the few difficulties that arose were quickly and amicably ironed out. Thanks to Stonewood we now have a magnificent home for which we can be justifiably proud.
Thanks very much Stonewood Homes, you have built us a magnificent home we are thrilled to bits with!”
“Building a new home is a big thing and for us probably something we will only do once. Having said that if we were to do it again we would choose the Stonewood team.
From when we started looking into building options, Stonewood stood out from the rest. Then when we got more into the process we found Stonewood’s professionalism, enthusiasm, creativeness and friendliness towards us and our project to be second to none.
Brendan and his draughting team were able to help us to perfect one of the Stonewood plans to suit our specific needs. Throughout the whole process, Brendan, Rochelle and Scott in the office and Luke on site, have been brilliant. The builders and all the contractors used on our house build have been first class. Also special mention of Carol Wood for her guidance and advice.
We love living in our new home and would happily recommend the Invercargill Stonewood team to anyone contemplating building a new home.”
“We, as first home builders, have been able to enjoy our new home for over a month now. I become more delighted with it every time I re-enter this lovely house. The Stonewood team, the standard of the builder, and many subcontractors alike have been truly amazing throughout. We have been so impressed with the whole team’s integrity, trustworthiness, along with total commitment in achieving the best results for us. On our visits to the office we were always greeted with a smile. You listened, you gave us your time, and nothing was a problem. I found the build itself exciting and was surprisingly stress free, thank you Stonewood!
The quality of the build, the standard of the finishing and the management of the process from start to finish has been fantastic. As things progressed we always were kept up to date of progress and could even follow progress online, complete with photographs. All due dates were achieved and final handover completed on time.
I would highly recommend the Invercargill Stonewood team to anyone considering building a house. Once again, thank you so much for persevering with my many questions and ever changing list of requirements. Well done Stonewood, you have built our dream house, it is now up to us to make it a home.”
“For some time we had discussed building our own home, last year we made a phone call to Sally at Stonewood to enquire about building. Our hardest decision was which plan to choose. I thank Stonewood for the many meetings we had in regards to making our choice an easy one.
We have been in our home for three months now and we are so very pleased with it, the smell of a new home is just delightful! We had a wonderful team of builders and contractors who were always welcoming and easy to chat to and give advice. Our colour consultant was very knowledgeable and very helpful with making decisions easy.
On all occasions of going into the office we were always made very welcome and greeted with smiles and of course a very large lolly bowl. Without a doubt I would recommend Stonewood Invercargill to anyone considering building, the standard of build and commitment to the project is second to none and is a very comforting feeling.
It was great to follow our build online and see the progress right before our eyes. Stonewood met all deadlines and before we knew it we were packing to move in. Our building experience was stress free and enjoyable. So once again, I thank Stonewood for your time, The many questions and emails that were always answered and I congratulate you all for being so wonderful.”
“In June 2012, while living in Wellington, we found out that we needed to move to Invercargill for my husband’s work in December. This was a very exciting time for us so we immediately started looking into our different living arrangement options for our upcoming move.
With much research and discussion we decided to take on a very new and different project for us, and build a new home. Neither of us had actually been to Invercargill before so it was a huge risk choosing and buying a section having only viewed the area through Google maps.
We purchased the section in Rosedale in August and the construction started in September with the team at Stonewood Homes Invercargill. We looked into and researched the various different building companies available. We chose Stonewood as we loved their home designs and they were very keen and enthusiastic to take on our build, They were also very confident that they could get us into our new home in December. As first time builders, working to a tight timeframe, and living out of town during the building, we were quite unsure and at times anxious of how the build would work out.
Throughout the whole process we found the team at Stonewood Invercargill to be extremely helpful and supportive. They lead us through with very good advice and communication, keeping us updated at every stage of the build.
They would send samples and information to our home in Wellington for us to view and choose from. They also set aside a Saturday when we came down to Invercargill for us to meet with the builder, electrician, landscaper and colour consultant. This was extremely helpful for many decisions to be made and to finally see the section we had purchased.
We moved into our new home on 21 December and we are very happy and settled in well. We were so impressed with how quickly the build processed and to the high standard of the finished product.
A huge thank you to the team at Stonewood Homes Invercargill.”
