Your home is an integral part of your daily life, and you will live every day with the decisions you make. With so much on the line, you deserve the care and attention you will receive from Standing Stone Builders.

Our goal is to create the highest quality homes, that when entered provide the warm feeling inside that says, "We absolutely love our new home!" This emotion is made possible by our keen ability to listen to our clients, understand what they look to achieve, and perform our job with the utmost integrity and professionalism. 

The journey we share with each homeowner in creating their unique space is based upon doing everything the right way, the first time. The result is a smooth, enjoyable process, and when this is accomplished we know we have succeeded again. 


We believe that in order to maintain the highest level of quality it is imperative to limit our volume of construction in process at any one time. We are small by design, and the focus that we are able to provide to you and your home is unsurpassed.

Though not named Standing Stone Builders until early 2006, our company’s roots began to develop 35 years ago. At that time Dave Ulrichs, president and founder of Standing Stone Builders, was a young boy who loved working with his hands in his father’s woodshop. Now, more than three decades later, when you walk into Dave’s garage (his shop, really) you’ll see just about every tool needed to construct a home. He has become a master craftsman and referred to by many as an artist. He is highly skilled at framing, cabinetry, tile work, stonework, flooring, stair-building, trim work and painting. This hands-on ability and firsthand knowledge is critical to achieving the greatest quality in the homes we build, and a major factor that sets us apart. Visit any of our homes ... you will see and feel theutmost in quality craftsmanship.

Your outstanding carpentry and construction skills, attention to detail, and trustworthiness, made the construction of our new home a wonderful experience. From the early planning stages of the home, to the presenting of the front door key, you were always there to walk us through the building process. Always communicating, always providing thoughtful recommendations, always listening to our thoughts and ideas, and always following through on scheduling and completion.
— Walter and Sharon Labbate

Whether you come to us with a sketch on a napkin or a set of architect-produced construction drawings, a desire for a quaint bungalow or a distinctive mountain estate, Standing Stone Builders can help you create the home of your dreams. We truly enjoy our work, and it shows in every home we’ve built.
