Client Review from our Houzz Profile

“We first toured a Stone Acorn home during the Bellaire Home Showcase tour in 2005 and were immediately impressed with the design, workmanship, and warmth of the home. By chance and as a result of seeing the home in 2005, we were able to purchase one of their custom-built homes in late 2007 from Benjamin that he and his family lived in. When we first saw the home, we knew that it was perfect for us. Although it was not a new home, Benjamin was very helpful in providing assistance with any home maintenance. Unfortunately we relocated for work to Virginia in 2009 and were only able to enjoy the home for less than two years. Benjamin provided invaluable assistance that enabled us to list and sell the house in a short period of time. However we knew that whenever we moved back to Houston, we would consider Stone Acorn again.

In late 2012, we learned that we would be relocating back to Houston the following year. After briefly searching the local housing inventory online, we decided to seriously consider building a custom home with Benjamin and Sarah. After meeting with them to discuss their building philosophy, potential lots in the area, building designs and costs, we were all set. We worked on the design remotely with Benjamin, Sarah and their in-house architect, Jen, through a series of FaceTime, conference calls and in-person meetings. We used Houzz’s idea books extensively throughout the process. They were all great to work with and flexible as we designed our dream home. After the design phase was complete, we received a detailed budget for the build — which in the end was nearly spot-on.

Benjamin and Sarah’s professionalism and experience were apparent as we worked through the building selection process and start of construction. They accommodated our busy work schedules throughout the construction phase and provided timely progress updates. They effectively managed all of the subcontractors and suppliers and paid particular attention to details and the quality of workmanship. When we experienced a hiccup with a contractor or supplier, they were diligent in working to resolve the matter. We had a pool constructed at the same time, and they worked seamlessly with the pool contractor to coordinate the pool construction. All in all, the final product exceeded our expectations. All of our family and friends have raved about how well designed and beautiful the house is.

In the months after the house was completed, Benjamin and Sarah have maintained the same level of professionalism as they’ve worked in a timely manner to address any service requests — which speaks volumes about their commitment to their clients even after the home construction is finished. We certainly have no desire to relocate again. But if we did, we know who we’d call first.”
