Oakstone Homes

From the first moment at The Stone Shop until the last we knew we were at the  right place.  Every member of the team was instrumental in bringing this project to life.  Although the custom design detail that we wanted was amazing from an aesthetic perspective it proved to be bit of a challenge from an engineering perspective.  The Stone Shop was not only prepared to take on our design challenge they were excited and helpful in taking our idea and making it happen.
