We christened the house (with our presence) around Memorial Day weekend and have enjoyed many relaxing days there already. Sunsets on the roof deck have been a real treat. My daughter said it best, “When I go over the causeway, it’s like an aura cleanse.” We foresee many fun memories in Harvey Cedars in our future…

We are very pleased with the construction of our new beach home. John and Marian run a very professional team and all are easy to work with. They managed all phases of construction from initial design/plans to demo to final closing. One of the best parts of Stonehenge was our project team. Debbie on interior design (lots of decisions/choices to make), Scott & Rob on construction coordination and Sharon on administration were all very hardworking and really want you to be satisfied. Stonehenge is a quality builder and we highly recommend them.

beginning quotesHi Marian,

Hope you are well. Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how wonderful Scott was to us when he stopped by to look at our punch list items yesterday. He went above and beyond in helping us as usual. Stonehenge has an amazing team and we are thrilled that we made the right choice.  Have a wonderful weekend. Hope it’s a long one for you!  All our best!

beginning quotesStonehenge built our new construction vacation home in Holgate, NJ (LBI), as well as assisting with the overall design of the home. With no exaggeration, we give them the highest rating that one can give. They were easily the best we’ve ever experienced in a builder, and we’ve built and renovated several homes.

Their work is of the highest quality; they delivered on-time and on-budget, and importantly they were highly communicative throughout the process. They were also very aware and respectful of our unique needs (budget, preferences, etc) and never pushed anything on us that wasn’t right for us.

In the end, the proof is in the pudding. We LOVE our new home, and we have Stonehenge to thank for being such a great partner.

John, Marian, Sharon, Deb and the entire team at Stonehenge Builders are top notch.  Giving them a 10 out of 10 is very easy – We’d give 11 out of 10 if we could!

beginning quotesStonehenge was superb in their presentation, direction and delivery of this home project for me.  Everyone was patient and courteous but kept their focus on deadlines. Because of a personal tragedy, completion of this home became very emotional for me.  Stonehenge went above and beyond to support me through the completion of this home.  And, the final product was absolutely PHENOMENAL !!

Thank you Marian, John, Sharon, Scott, Debbie, (hope I didn’t miss anyone) at Stonehenge for building our new house on LBI.
Since we are not local the pictures of the progress were great to see and share with our family.  When we did visit the island during the construction process, our neighbors, who were on the island all said what a great job the builders were doing, professional, methodical and always nice. From beginning to end, Stonehenge’s standards are above and beyond, which you can see from the finished product. Everyone who comes to visit comments on the how beautiful the house is, and the attention that was given to every detail. Thank you Scott, for letting our many family members walk through the house that last week, and for getting us in so we could enjoy some summer on LBI.
We love sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine at night.

John –

Found one of your business cards on the Barnegat Light post office steps the other day. Serendipity I guess.
It has been eleven years since you built our house. I think it was your first on LBI.  We have not had much reason to talk and our paths have diverged.
The card lead me to your web site.  Looks like you have built a very good business with building houses on LBI. I would see one being built from time to time but certainly was not aware of them all.
You and Marian disserve the success.  You are both very good at what you do.
Our house is still serving us very well.  The “kid magnet” plan is working with our three “kids” and seven grandchildren.  We see quite a lot of them in the Summer.  Although the office/bedroom is definitely a bedroom.
The design and handicap features have worked very well in support of having my elderly parents with us for many Summers.
We still appreciate and benefit from all the ideas that came from you, Marian, Craig and some of the subcontractors, and the execution. There is very little that we would do differently if we were to build the house again today.
The house weathered Hurricane Sandy well. We lost a few roof shingles and several trees. The flood water did not even reach the buildable part of the lot, so we were more fortunate than many. I think being near the inlet let the water out, as opposed to the building up that other places experienced.
The pergola on the second floor deck started to rack in the 80 MPH wind and was about to take to the air.  I tied it down to the ground (with an anchor rope)  to keep it from blowing away.  I subsequently straightened and stiffened it with a couple of 45 degree braces which should help given another hurricane. The trumpet vine has not quite reached the top to help too.
With Sandy and other NE winds, when others are experiencing erosion, our bay beach continues to grow and is well used.
Thanks for building us such a good house.  One that Pat and I and the rest of our family are enjoying.  One that is holding up very well.

Marian & John,
We’d like to thank you once again for helping us to make our dream of owning a house at the beach a reality.  In the two months since we’ve moved in, every guest has commented how well designed and beautiful our home is.  The attention to detail and care that went into its construction is obvious from the minute you walk through the door.
The process of buying a new home can be stressful, but the Stonehenge team truly made the experience enjoyable.  Each and every team member we dealt with was quick to respond and extremely accommodating of all of our requests.  It’s obvious that both of you and the team take great pride in your craftsmanship and customer service. We are not the type of people who give out compliments lightly.  In fact, we are extremely demanding customers.  When we spend money on a product or service, it is our expectation that we receive a quality product and good customer service.  You and the rest of the Stonehenge team went far beyond our expectations and delivered a beautifully built home and great overall experience.
I’d expect that you have a long list of clients who are willing to act as references for new potential customers.  Please feel free to add us to that list!
Warm regards,

beginning quotesSuperstorm Sandy destroyed the first floor of our home on LBI and forced us to make the difficult decision of renovating the standing structure or doing a total demolition and starting over.  In the weeks following the storm we met at least 5 contractors with offices on LBI and were disappointed with each interaction until we met with John and Marian from Stonehenge.    They were the only ones who took the time to review our property prior to the initial meeting and seemed interested in earning our business.  From that initial meeting and throughout the demolition, construction and closing on our new home, the entire Stonehenge team treated us like friends and partners and not like just a homeowner with a house on a construction assembly line.  Marian was there to guide us through each phase of the selections and make the entire process enjoyable to the point where we looked forward to our 2 hour selection meetings.  The communication from their team was exceptional, from Sharon in the office, to Brett the construction manager for our home.  We now look back on the entire process and are extremely grateful, as well as 100% certain, that we picked the absolute best builder on LBI for our home!”ending quotes

beginning quotesJust wanted to tell you that our whole family enjoyed Fourth of July weekend at the house that Marian and john built.  There was plenty of room for all. It was fun watching everyone get confused when they first came in and didn’t know where to go. My washer and dryer in the garage (thank you) are working hard with all the beach towels.  Everyone liked the new and improved outdoor shower. Even I used it!  My favorite things are the screened in porch and all the spa like bathrooms. Makes me want to redo the ones at home. Thanks again for giving us a new and improved house the whole family can enjoy. If only you had control over the weather and the traffic going home.ending quotes

Dear Stonehenge Building & Development,

We were extremely pleased with the entire process of designing and building our new house on Long Beach Island with your company.

We had been in our previous house 22 years until it was destroyed by Super Storm Sandy.

Your team made the process of architectural design and selection of specific items such as cabinets, flooring, windows, etc. easy.

The construction process itself proceeded rapidly and was clearly quality work.  The update photos emailed to us of the house during construction were extremely appreciated.  Our neighbors even commented on the courtesy and the site cleanliness.  The house was completed about a month before we expected and it is exactly as we envisaged it.

We have been using it for several months and we are very pleased and enjoying it immensely!

Sincerely,

We want to thank you for rebuilding our beach house. The thought of rebuilding our house was very overwhelming – that is until we met you. You took a lot of time to explain the process and alleviated most of our anxieties. We met with two other reputable builders, but your personalities clicked with ours. You were so helpful, patient and responsive to all of our many questions. We were thoroughly impressed with your business plan. Unlike the other contractors, you had an architect (including your expert recommended improvements) make drawings of the house upon which the contract was based so we knew what we were buying and that the contract price would minimize extra work. Your promptness of the quote and contract process and your guarantee to complete the house within six months was the best to achieve our goals. All of this is what lead us to sign the contract with Stonehenge Builders and Developers. AND WE ARE GLAD WE DID!

Your project manager, Scott De Voe, was outstanding. From our very first meeting with him we knew this was going to be a great experience, and it was! Scott was prompt and professional. He listened to what we wanted and our concerns and worked within our parameters of time and budget. Change order and credit amounts for the changes we made were reasonable and fair. Scott responded to all of our numerous telephone calls and emails without hesitation and even sent us pictures so we could see what stage the project was in. Together with your field adjustments to accomplish changes we made, selecting materials, colors and finishes and working with your vendors was a pleasant and nearly painless experience. All of this speaks directly to your good, kind, patient and super personalities which were evident at our first encounter. As to the workmanship, all we can say is kudos to your entire staff for an exceedingly excellent job – we couldn’t be any happier. Your entire team worked really hard and, with your personal touches, transformed our little cape into a wonderful six bedroom house that our family is proud of and will enjoy forever. We greatly appreciate the time you, Scott and Sharon spent with us and all that you did for us. We cannot say enough about your honesty, integrity, knowledge, professionalism and workmanship in making our dream come true. It is with pleasure that we highly recommend Stonehenge Builders and Developers!

STONEHENGE Builders and Developers built our beautiful home in Mystic Island, Little Egg Harbor. From the very first time speaking with them we felt comfortable. They toured us through a new home that was being built in Beach Haven West and it was similar to what we envisioned for our future home. The quality of materials used and workmanship was remarkable. From that point we decided that Stonehenge would be our builder. They were very informative and understood everything we needed to take the first steps in knocking down our existing home and building the home of our dreams. They recommended several demolition contractors that were available and educated us on the process that would take place (ie. disconnecting utilities, storage location for the house contents, permits, variances, etc.). Marian and John were wonderful to work with. Their staff was just as knowledgeable and they informed us on every detail that was in process. They updated us with reports and even went as far as providing pictures of the progress on our home. Our house was built right on schedule. Thinking back on some of the horror stories we heard on homes built by less reputable builders, we were so glad we had Stonehenge build our home. A couple of months after our house was built the devasting hurricane “Sandy” hit The New Jersey shore area. Mystic Island was hit hard however our home weathered the storm suffering minimal damage. We could not believe that Stonehenge came back without being called to check on our home and make sure everything was in order. This speaks to the professionalism and pride Stonehenge has with their customers and their service. Thank you Marian and John for giving us such a beautiful home. We are so lucky to have found you.

Stonehenge is comprised of people with the highest degree of professionalism and care. They went above and beyond on every facet of our new home. They thought of everything and more.

After finally purchasing the building lot that we had coveted for over 20 years, we needed a builder that we could trust and afford. After interviewing several builders, we selected Stonehenge Building and Development. We felt comfortable with them from our first meeting. The people at Stonehenge supplied extensive lists of past customers and arranged for us to tour a custom home that they had recently completed, as well as offering addresses of other homes that we might want to “drive by”. All questions were answered fully and if they did not have the answer they quickly got it for us. They were patient and we never felt pressured. Stonehenge understood what we were looking for and enabled us to make our dream a reality.Stonehenge competently handled every phase of the planning and construction. Our planning and design meetings with John, Marian, Bobby and the architect were thorough and meaningful. Although we had done some building and “GCing” ourselves, and had a good idea of what we wanted, it was Stonehenge who took our ideas and created a home. We found John and Marian conscientious and meticulous in all phases of the project. Communications were excellent. We knew that we could always contact either Marian or John and if we left a message we received a return call or text promptly. As with all construction projects there were some minor bumps in the road; however, all were handled fairly and to our satisfaction, without Stonehenge ever cutting corners.We believe that quality construction was always Stonehenge’s ultimate goal. The finished product is now our “Dream House” that will hopefully be our family gathering place for many years to come. For that we thank Stonehenge Building and Development.ending quotes
