Craftsmanship in stone
Summerstone is a small family run construction business and I intend it to stay that way. We do natural stone, (mostly flagstone and retaining walls) , decks, porches and small additions, such as screened porches or sunrooms. I like doing unusual or difficult work.We don't cut corners. I'm happy to help clients come up with a suitable design for their place , but I have absolutely no "designer agenda".
I always work on the jobsite. My daughter , Clara , sometimes works with me as well. Occasionally, I also have other people helping out, usually subcontractors or students.
I often have had people telling me that , with the quality of our work, we could be a much larger company, but the satisfaction is in actually building well made things, not supervising a lot of people. When I have allowed the business to grow to 8 or 10 employees, it just resulted in frustration and speeding tickets.
The pictures on this page are of us on jobs, me and some of the people who have worked with us over the years.
