From start to finish this was a great, stress free experience for us. The Stonewood team were faultless; from Richard at the design phase through to Chris at the project management stage, they were professional and went out of their way to help us achieve the best house for us.
Thanks to Richard, Chris K, Nigel, Amy, Kelley & Chris M! Would 100% recommend them to build your house!!

Rachael Milne

Building with Stonewood was an exciting and good fun experience. The team were always friendly, considerate and helpful. We love our new house and all the many features, some we would never have thought of ourselves.
The personalised online system - Stonewood Connect - is so good, it shows all the trades and the expected timeline start to finish. Many photo's all the way though also stored on line.
If you are building in South Canterbury, then you should definitely consider Stonewood!

We were lucky enough to build a house with Stonewood last year, we cannot speak highly enough about them. From the first contact with Salesperson Richard to moving in, we could not praise them all enough. They made our experience enjoyable and carefree, nothing was ever a problem and we would not hesitate to recommend them or to build with them again.


Graham and Lyn Milne

A huge thank you to all the staff at Stonewood, from start to finish it has been a fantastic experience.

The first day I walked into your showroom, saw the home desings and ‘fell in love’ with “Forest Park” I have renamed the house “Cooper Park”. Special thanks to the Cooper Brothers Builders and all the other contractors. Stonewood Homes has been a pleasure to work with “slick”, professional. warm and friendly. Thank You Team

From our first contact it was like being part of a large family.

John and Suzanne

We tragically lost our family home to a fire. Richard Brown was the first point of contact at Stonewood. He responded immediately, and it was all go from here.
Richard's professionalism, loyalty, knowledge and expertise is invaluable. He is customer focused, proactive, approachable, and with a positive nature, he would always deliver. Richard was very understanding, & supportive of our situation. He made the building process smooth sailing and less stressful for us. We are impressed with the high calibre team at Stonewood. We are forever grateful for the opportunity to work with Richard, and are exceptionally happy we entrusted Stonewood in building our new home. We look forward to living the dream!
Our heartfelt thanks.


“We will be forever grateful to you all for makeing the process of building our beautiful family home stress free.

Worth your weight in gold.

Thanks so much!!”

“We built a house with Stonewood Homes in 2018 and are so happy we did.  What a great experience!  From Richard Brown in sales to Chris Mclean in construction, every step of the way we were treated courteously, professionally and were listened to at all times as to what we wanted.

Having never built a new home before Richard was so helpful and guided us through the whole process and had many ideas and solutions that we would never have thought of ourselves.  He was a wealth of information and helpful advice and always with a smile.  We had a few challenges along the way but nothing was too much trouble for him and he was always there at the end of the phone or computer that we could talk to.

The construction of the house went up so quickly and we have Chris to thank for that.  He made the whole build seem so easy and had the tradespeople here most days.  He was so ‘on top’ of everything and what was happening and his attention to detail was second to none.  We saw him on regular basis and he was always quick to rectify the couple of changes we wanted.

In closing, we can not recommend the whole team at Stonewood Homes highly enough and in particular Richard, Chris and Nigel for their excellent communication, problem solving, attention to detail and helping us throughout the whole build.”

Greg and Aprile O’Brien, A big THANK YOU to everyone at Stonewood Homes
