Clever Living Testimonials

Take a look at what our Clever Living clients are saying…

The Shane Stone Builders Clever Living Suffolk home provides the perfect solution to those who are after a stress, mess and surprise free build! The entire team left no question un-answered and no request unmet, like our all important cat door. Receiving updates, photos, and site visit invitations were a frequent highlight of the process, providing all the enjoyment of watching and viewing the build without any of the hassle. We look forward to making our lovely new Suffolk our ideal home.

Alana Vickers & Tim Aplin

We’ve been in our Angus Clever Living Home since October 2022. We signed up for our home in June 2021 and building began in April 2022 and despite Covid we were able to move in on October 2022.

Shane Stone Builders made the changes we wanted straight forward, such as a window to a door to the deck, facilitating our Pyroclassic wood burner and wet-back. These all made it an even more sustainable home for us.

It’s comfortable and a pleasure to live in. The design of the house with the large kitchen/living area and access to bedrooms, bathroom, laundry, and the walk-in wardrobe really homely.

John & Miranda Milnes

We found Shane Stone and the team to be very approachable. We were always kept up to date with the building process. We were able to visit our house at any time during the building process. We were happy that we were able to have a second toilet in what was the laundry. We chose to place the laundry in the garage. We were able to change the kitchen to suit us & happy with the finish. We would happily recommend Shane Stone Builders (Clever Living & Co).

Shane Stone Builders were fantastic to work with when building our investment property, as we live in the South Island. We relied on their guidance from picking colours to doing video calls to see the progress on our three-bedroom, Angus home build. The first time I saw the build in person was on delivery day and the team that delivers the build and connects the services are a talented team. I was impressed how Shane Stone Builders then checked our build after delivery and made any touch ups that were needed straight away. Even months after delivery, they have been great at sorting a few new build tweaks. Financing was a challenge however Shane Stone Builders went over and beyond to assist us with securing finance on a relocatable new build, as these are seen as risky in the eyes of the lender. I can’t thank the team enough for the outstanding service, quality product you have provided and giving us confidence to do this project from a distance. It’s all in the people you work with and Shane Stone Builders have the right people on their team to make this process as smooth as possible.

Our journey with Shane Stone Builders Ltd has been a wonderful experience. From the first moment we contacted them, while contemplating the possibility of considering the Bunnings Clever Living Home, to the completion.

We have found the Shane Stone Builders team very professional, competent, and always approachable to answer any enquiries. It is great that Shane and the team makes each client feel a special individual and not “just one of the many”. We would certainly recommend Shane Stone Builders to anyone for what they do.
