How we work
3 Stones Custom Homes is a design-build construction and general contracting company operating in downtown Toronto. We provide start-to-finish design and construction services on every size of project. Our company has purchased, renovated, and sold many homes in downtown Toronto therefore, we understand the importance of a renovation dollar when adding value to your home. By focusing on the 3 'corner stones' of project execution: quality, cost, and schedule we consistently deliver to our client's exacting expectations.
What makes 3 Stones successful is our attention to detail and our demonstration of care in everything we do. Our services include: project consultation, scope/budget development, architectural and interior design, building permit applications, and highly skilled trades.
One of the offerings that sets 3 Stones apart from other builders is our 'open-book project delivery' service. By providing a comprehensive open-book project delivery, our clients have full visibility on budget development and actual cost tracking throughout their project enabling informed decision making to customize their final design decisions. We conduct bi-weekly site progress meetings, deliver weekly progress reports and bi-weekly budget vs. actuals cost updates to provide full visibility.
To understand your renovation goals and set priorities we offer complimentary renovation consultations to guide project development plans. Our scope and design recommendations are based on decades of experience to help maximize the inclusion of your project wants within your target budget.
We work with you to define and refine your project through design and scope development discussions supported by a fully transparent budgeting process. Certainties on project delivery are provided through a comprehensive construction schedule, design/permit drawings, and detailed estimates.
Home renovations are a significant investment which is why we focus so much attention on delivering on our commitments. We work diligently with our trades, designers, and clients to achieve the agreed quality, budget, and schedule targets. We stand behind our work through our post construction support to ensure complete satisfaction.
We have extensively renovated over 50 homes in downtown Toronto on behalf of our clients or as recreate/resell investments for 3 Stones. The following is a small sample of our work.
