Shane Stone Builders Ltd is the Wanganui Approved Builder for The Clever Living Co Homes.

We can now offer you healthy and affordable housing you can rely on, whether it be a family home, holiday home or rental. Clever Living Co homes are built off-site, then transported to a location of your choice.

A fast and cost-effective choice for a high standard home with clear and upfront costs. You will find a plan and style to suit your requirements with spacious open plan living and easy indoor/outdoor flow, which makes entertaining a breeze. We offer the complete package from design and construction, right through to the finishing touches.

All designs have been rigorously reviewed to ensure they meet or exceed local building codes. Frames are constructed from Laminated Veneer Lumber, making them stronger than conventional framing, but with the cost advantages and sustainability of standard framing timber. The plans are fully quantity surveyed so you know, upfront, what the cost will be.
