“They approached their work as if they were working on their own home.”
The founding principle at Stockell is – “Let’s build it better than anybody else”. That’s it. Always use the best craftsman, always use the best materials, never stop learning how to build better and faster, always exceed current codes and always use the best building practices. It’s amazing how fast and how precisely tasks are completed by professionals who know what they are doing. This reduces the time it takes to complete a project, which also reduces cost. We pass these savings on to our clients. That’s true Value. We take pride in our work. We love what we do, and we have fun doing it.
At Stockell Custom Homes, our passion is building. We feel a great sense of accomplishment making a structure rise from a set of plans. We love constructing beautiful homes or transforming an existing room, a house or an office into something extraordinary.
Working with our clients and design professionals as a team assures that we are all on the same page and that all the details and selections are made before construction begins making the process more enjoyable and less stressful. We are detail oriented, knowing that the quality, fit and finish of any project resides in the details.
Building lasting relationships with our clients and working to earn their trust and confidence is a priority at Stockell. All our current projects are the result of repeat clients and referrals. We know that our future depends on the quality of current projects. Satisfied customers are our most valued achievement. We have grown our business on this premise.
Meet the Team
Don Stockell, president and owner of Stockell General Contracting Inc., has been in the construction industry for 42 years. In 1976, Don started as a brick mason while attending St. Louis Community College and the University of Missouri at St. Louis, studying architecture, business and construction related coursework. Within a few years Don became a foreman for the masonry company he was working for. In 1984 Don took work with a custom homebuilder in Jefferson County Missouri. He learned much from a homebuilding company that always had quality and attention to detail as its first priorities.
In 1986, the homebuilder he had worked for retired and Don started Stockell General Contracting Inc. Don soon became known for his attention to detail and superb craftsmanship that he had learned through his years in masonry and homebuilding. His business grew through word of mouth. He has since built large and small custom homes, done remodeling work, commercial retail, office and industrial interior build out work.
Don has a strong commitment to building long lasting, energy-efficient and healthy buildings while protecting the environment in the process.
