TO Wayne and Carly
Thank you so much for making the process of planning and building my home such an easy and totally enjoyable journey.
With guidance and ideas from Carly, we planned the home to suit the block and my needs for energy efficient and very modern home were met.
Then with Wayne’s knowledge and skills, he came up with super ideas for the roof design and the exterior look of the home. It was all I was hoping for.
With each stage I was kept well informed and consulted by Carly and Wayne.
Having Carly going shopping with me to select internal fittings, tiles and floor coverings was much appreciated. With so many choices, it was great to have a second opinion.
Throughout the whole time it was great. I am so pleased that I chose Stoneway as my buildings as they have been awesome to deal with and they have produced a top quality home for me to enjoy for many years.
"Building Process made easy from the first meeting.'
Melissa & Jase, Tocumwal
After settling into our new house we would just like to thank Stoneway for building our home. The building process was made easy from the first meeting we had with you right up until you handed us the keys. The communication from your team was outstanding, always just a phone call away with our questions which put us both at ease.
Our home has been built to a high standard; you both took the time to make sure the smaller things were addressed throughout the build. Your professional advice made choosing fittings easy with minimal stress and the quality of the house is outstanding.
We would both like to thank you for keeping us sane and confident in knowing we chose the right builders and we would highly recommend you to other people building the the Tocumwal area. It is a great feeling to know that we have supported the local industry.

"On time, on budget and streets ahead on quality."
Ross & Glenda Bodey, Tocumwal
Wayne and Carly at Stoneway did an excellent job building our new home in Tocumwal. The quality of the building and the finish is impeccable. From the first shovel full of dirt to getting the keys was 109 days. Stoneway was, on time, on budget and streets ahead on quality. We are very happy with our new home.

"Trouble free and excellent home."
Gerry & Kay Young, Tocumwal
Dear Carly and Wayne,
I write the letter as a thank you for the effort you both gave in the building of our new residence.
It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you both, we found you to be very, forthright and unbelievably helpful.
Communication was very easy and we always felt very comfortable when in discussion.
You are both very conversant with all aspects of the build of a house from the planning stage to the end product.
Carly, with your knowledge of decorating you took us to the suppliers where you assisted us with the selection of fittings, carpet, tiles and all items required in the building of the house.
Wayne, with your excellent knowledge of all areas in building a home, your assistance in locating the house to obtain the best benefits from nature, the best material, to the final product along with your determination to strive for perfection we have a great home.
At my age I was not looking forward to building a new home but you both made it very easy for Kay and myself.
We found it excellent in that we only had to deal with two people, unlike some home building companies where you see so many people the left hand doesn’t know what the right is doing.
We were given a price for the completion of our home and that was the price we paid, no hidden extras, and you Wayne said you allowed 100 days from start to finish, excluding unforeseen circumstances, and as we now know we received the keys on the 100th day.
The finish of the home inside and out is, in our opinion and we are quite fussy, exceptional to say the least.
We would not hesitate to recommend "Stoneway Constructions" to anyone wanting a trouble free and excellent home or building of any sort constructed.
Please feel free to show this letter to prospective clients, if you so wish, and allow contact with us should they want to do so.
Thank you both,
Gerry & Kay Young

"Their attention to detail was meticulous"
Genevieve Scott, Tocumwal
Stoneway completed renovations at our home and whilst I was dreading the mess Stoneway kept their work environment very neat, tidy and safe. Their attention to detail was meticulous and they finished the job promptly. Stoneway provided such a friendly, reliable and efficient service, that I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again.
"[We travelled] overseas and didn't for a moment worry about what we would find when we came back."
Vanessa & Lincoln Sayer, Tocumwal
At the beginning of the building process with Stoneway Constructions, Wayne explained to us that once the detailed housing plans and specifications were finalised, in theory, we could leave the country during the actual build and expect to come back seeing everything we had discussed, agreed and planned. It is testament to the level of trust and confidence we developed with Wayne and Carly, that in the final 6 weeks of our build, we did travel overseas and didn't for a moment worry about what we would find when we came back.
We love our new country home! It was built under time, on budget and is everything we expected. If we had to do it all again, we would choose Stoneway, without hesitation. Here are some of the reasons why the experience of working with Wayne and Carly was so fantastic and why we would recommend Stoneway to anyone looking to build a new home.
*Transparency in everything- whether it be actual costs, margins, issues that can and do arise as part of the building process
*Honest and professional advice - Wayne and Carly listened to us and provided feedback on how we might be able to achieve the same outcome via a different method
*Care for the site- it was important to us that our treed block was preserved throughout the build process and it was
*Engagement with clients - we were living in Melbourne during the build and requested for weekly photos of progress to be sent to us, this was always done along with regular calls from Wayne and on-site visits on the weekends to walk through progress
*Flexible - to accommodate our preferred fixtures or fittings
*Quality - Wayne and Carly take great pride in their work and this is obvious in the end result

"We are so happy with our new home it is everything we pictured it to be and more!"
Dear Carly and Wayne,
We would just like to start by saying thank you for building our lovely new home. We are so glad we made the decision to build with Stoneway - we know we made the right choice.
You have both been fantastic throughout the wholeprocess. We loved the way you gave up so much of your time to sit with us beforehand to make sure we were happy with all the decisions about the house. Carly it was great to have you there every step of the way, picking tiles, bricks, colours etc and Wayne, both you and Carly kept us in the loop about everything that was happening during the build, which we really appreciated. You were both so patient despite us having so much going on with us welcoming the birth of our new little boy Theodore into the world.
We are so happy with our new home, it is everything we pictured it to be and more! The little details like the extra USB powerpoint and the amazing housewarming gifts just made moving in feel so much more special!
It has been so good to know that you are only a phone call away if need be and you stand by your work confidently. Once again, we thank you both for your outstanding service and building our beautiful new home. We will recommend you to anyone who is looking to build in our area!
Alli, Tim & Theo
