We are committed to providing the highest of quality.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Art & Stone Group to build our custom home and we couldn’t be happier! They were an absolute delight to work with and made the daunting task of building a house seem like a really fun project. We didn’t know anything about construction going into it and they really took the time to understand what we wanted as a family and were great at explaining everything.
They have amazing attention to detail, and we found them to have a holistic view of the entire process. They made sure to be part of the design process and helped us with selections which is helpful because Alexandra has impeccable taste. They made sure we stayed on budget and had so many ideas and helpful suggestions. They were so easy to work with and you can tell they put their clients as their top priority.
Even the trades they brought in all had the same matching values and they did honest, professional, great quality work and took their time to do the job perfectly. Their expertise and experience helped us build the home of our dreams.
To find a builder as honest, trustworthy, efficient, transparent, flexible, and attentive is so rare, I’m so glad we found them!

We were so fortunate to work with Alexandra and Andrew to build our home. From our very first meeting until they handed us the keys, it was an incredibly smooth process. They were knowledgeable, patient, and reliable through the planning process all the way through the build and even once we had moved in.
We have a busy family, with (now!) four young girls. Alex and Andrew were so great with taking our phone calls and text messages late in the evening and during the weekend, as this was the only time we had to make decisions and have home-related conversations. Our home was in the final stages of being built when Covid hit, despite the unprecedented challenges a pandemic has on the construction industry, as clients we never felt stressed. Art & Stone Group clearly takes pride in the work that they do, and they are incredibly talented.
We are so grateful for their time and talent and look forward to raising our family in this home!

Deciding to build a custom home is a huge undertaking financially and emotionally. We knew we had to find the right team to build our dream home. Being in real estate, I have worked with other custom home builders and had a sense of how the process should go and a clear sense of how it shouldn’t.
We interviewed some of Ottawa’s notable custom home builders and despite reputation didn’t find the right fit, until we met with Art & Stone Group. From the initial meeting we felt they were organized and had a clear and transparent process in place for construction.
We were understandably nervous at first, given the scale of this decision and the potential negative ramification of going with the wrong builder, but quickly felt at ease when we chose Art & Stone Group.
From the onset they operated with foresight and planned many steps ahead with the genuine intention of efficiency, and the goal of being considerate of our budget and timelines.
They were there to help every step of the way, even when our questions fell outside the realm of their scope of work. They were committed to building us the house of our dreams. They were always available to answer questions and ease nerves if anything came up (and truly nothing dramatic ever did).
Being two professionals with three young boys, they made themselves available to us whenever it was best for us, which we appreciated tremendously. Being a professional in real estate with more exposure to construction than the average consumer, I didn’t think I could feel impressed…but I was blown away by the process and the ultimate result.
Their standards are extremely high. Even higher than ours, which I didn’t think would be possible. Their attention to detail is clinical and meticulous.
Art & Stone Group hired trades that were reasonably priced, courteous, professional, punctual, and meticulous – a reflection of their standards.
They were able to deliver a luxury custom home, during COVID in 7 months. We gave them a tall order and EVERYONE we spoke to told us to anticipate waiting 12-18 months of have our home completed and couldn’t believe we were in before Halloween! This is truly a testament to their systems and process. I think if every builder could operate at Art & Stone Group’s level the reputation of the construction industry would be elevated and refined to the true art form it should be.

We hired Art and Stone Group on the recommendation of a friend of the family. Andrew and Alexandra, the principals of Art and Stone Group, were a pleasure to work with from start to finish on our new home build.
We had already purchased our property and designed our home when they got involved. They had the knowledge and skill to point out items that were of concern from a building standpoint, as well as details in our plans that we were unaware of and would have ended up changing during the build when they became apparent to us. This knowledge of building processes and standards, as well attention to detail, saved us money and time during the construction process.
We have built a couple of homes and have renovated extensively, so we were very particular about what we wanted and expected as our final product. Andrew and Alexandra helped us to source suppliers for items that were a little different and helped us to negotiate pricing when requested. We used some of their established trades and they worked with some of our preferred trades/suppliers. We feel that as a team we achieved the look and quality of home that we had envisioned.
Andrew and Alexandra were organized and professional in all of our dealings. We were very hands on with the build and they worked with us to ensure we were aware of all necessary details. They were committed to our project, committed to ensuring finish quality was where it needed to be, and, that any issues that arose were dealt with in a timely, professional and transparent manner.
We are very pleased with the effort and commitment that Art and Stone Group showed in our custom home build and feel that the final product showcases their abilities.
