Don and his team at Stockell Custom Homes designed and built our Carriage House. This external building looks like it was constructed at the same time as our home. The construction quality and workmanship are excellent, and the building is a perfect addition to our property.
There is a bonus room above the main floor which serves as an adorable playroom for our grandkids. We utilize the entire building all year for a variety of purposes. Like everything Don does, this building is exactly what we envisioned.
Like many construction projects, we asked for changes as we saw opportunities to fine-tune some features we had overlooked. Don accommodated our revisions to the original plan and made some suggestions that made our ideas even better.
If you want a great balance of quality, price, and flexibility there is no company better than Stockell Custom Homes.
Everyday, a Clean & Safe Site
Don and his company replaced the deck on our home. He personally visited our home and determined the scope of work, the bid was comprehensive yet easy to understand. The bid price was excellent compared to the 3 others that we got. We were super excited with the communication, knowledge, experience and flexibility of the crew. We made a couple of changes, both cosmetic and structural resulting in a fantastic job. Most impressive was their willingness to stain the ends of each deck board at installation, this was recommended by our painter for a longer lasting deck. In my book, that’s over the top!!! Everyday, a clean and safe site. Excellent Job. If you would like to see it, just ask Don for a tour.
You can’t go wrong using Don Stockell for any size project, and I’m not just saying that because he’s my brother in law! . He has the utmost integrity, honesty, expertise, work ethic and follow up in the industry. He has done small projects from making our home handicapped accessible, to complex projects like adding a three level elevator to an existing home. We have used Don and his team to create a wine cellar/man cave, to finish a lower level, and on exterior projects. Each project you will be supplied with a detailed bid, along with Don’s extensive expertise and input. He will then do exactly what he promises, in beautiful detail and with daily cleanup. Highly recommend!!
Don Stockell and his team have done several remodels on our home. He is very reliable, on time, and so professional. Our bathroom was a complete redo. His team laid the floor , put in the tub , shower and toilet. They also painted, installed the vanity , mirrors and lights! It’s gorgeous.
Stockell Custom Homes was recommended to us by a well known decorator that we have used for years. Don provided great ideas on how to enhance the project we were interested in and came up with a fair price for the work. During the project both Don and Tom were always available, they kept us well informed of progress and made sure that the subcontractors paid attention to details. We are very happy with the end product and would definitely use them again.
Don and his team have done great work for us on an 1800 sq foot basement remodel and some finish work on a formal living room and entry. From design to completion they have kept us informed during every step. When a problem came up with one of their subs it was addressed, corrected and we moved on. They stand behind their work and the finished product looks beautiful. We will be engaging them again soon on a kitchen remodel and look forward to the finished product. I would highly recommend Stockell Customer Homes and Construction.
We used Stockell Construction for our basement remodel and were so happy with the results that we used them again for our Master Bedroom/Bathroom addition, along with a new roof, siding and deck. Don had great suggestions during the planning process with our architect. His team did quality work, and we always felt that they wanted everything to be done right. They paid attention to detail and wanted to be sure that we were happy with the outcome. We were pleased with their recommendations for plumbing, cabinet and flooring providers. The subcontractors they used also did quality work. Other than a few changes we requested, they completed the project as budgeted. Our project manager did a great job of coordinating everything and addressed all of our questions and issues throughout the project.
Eureka Home Remodel
I can’t say enough great things about Don Stockell and his team. Our remodel looks great, his team was professional and was here on time every time they were scheduled. His job supervisor, Tom, was knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, scheduled and supervised all subcontractors, and was wonderful to work with. Because of the quality of the work that was done even the permit inspections were a breeze. We definitely plan on using them again for additional remodeling.
Energy Star, ADA Compliant Custom Home
My husband and I hired Stockell Homes to build our families custom energy efficient, wheelchair accessible home. Our 3470 square foot home has the latest Energy Star building techniques, is ADA compliant and on budget! Furthermore, our home achieved one of the lowest HERS Index scores that ASERusa has tested in the Saint Louis Region over the last ten years. We couldn’t be happier.
Paid close attention to fine detail for our new home
We were very pleased with Don and Tom. If not one, then both Don and Tom were on the project daily. The whole planning of the house went very smoothly. The subcontractors were not only professional and friendly but their work was awesome! They approached their work as if they were working on their own home. They paid close attention to fine detail. They made excellent suggestions. Our house was finished on schedule in spite of the rain delays we had!
Major kitchen remodel St. Albans
Stockell Homes just completed a major kitchen remodeling for our home in St. Albans. First class workmanship with excellent subs and suppliers. Stayed on budget and on schedule so family could enjoy Thanksgiving with new kitchen and dining area.
This is second major job with Stockell Homes and they continue to impress us with their work and attention to detail.
Very professional in both proposal and construction stages, with great results
Very professional in both proposal and construction stages, with great results. Our finished deck was not only visually appealing, it was built correctly, up to code, and is very secure. They worked around existing conditions and change orders very quickly, without any hassles. The entire crew was courteous, prompt, and worked very hard; while respecting our privacy and time.
Garage Addition 2015
We have had a basement finished, bathrooms remodeled, general repairs in the past few years. We had a garage addition this spring by Stockell General Contracting. They were very professional, very high quality work, finished before they estimated they would be done and very good at communication. Don and his team take pride in their work. They clean up daily, which doesn’t seem important but it really is. I felt he had very fair prices and did not over price at all.
Fabulous work ethic and his word is his bond
Stockell Homes/Don Stockell has been the general contractor for us on 2 homes. Don completely renovated every square inch of our former home, a 1902 gem (after his renovations!) in an urban setting. We moved this past Summer to a suburban 1980’s home and undertook major renovations on it.
We have received nothing but the highest compliments from all that have entered either of our homes. Don’s attention to detail and craftsmanship are superb. He has a fabulous work ethic and his word is his bond.
With all the work he has done for us we feel like Don is one of the family and we recommend him without any reservation to anyone who is ever looking for a contractor.
Stockell Contracting is the best contractor I have ever hired!
Over the last 30 years I’ve hired many contractors for various projects and I had to stand over them to insure things were done correctly but with Don Stockell in charge, I found he was insuring that things were right at each step. He even suggested ideas that I had not thought of. He treated our home as if it was his own.
Mr. Stockell helped us “problem-solve”
Mr.Stockell and his crew did a great job when we needed to replace our old cedar deck.They deconstructed and removed the old deck.Then they poured new footings for the refigured deck footprint, and built up the new consruction ,with a wood deck and composite rails, and composite stairs.
Mr. Stockell helped us “problem-solve” through our concerns during the design phase , so that we are very happy with the finished product. The entire project was done in a timely manner, start to finish!
Two story addition
Stockell Homes & Contracting added a two story addition, a screened in porch and finished our basement. They did an excellent job and did so in a timely manner. Workman were on the job daily and we were in constant communication. It was a refreshing change from our past experience with other contractors.
Complimented by my neighbors!
Donald Stockell construction tore off my old front porch and installed a new porch that is beautiful! Donald met me at the lumber yard and assisted me in selecting railings, and porch flooring. He completed the porch on time and I am complimented by my neighbors about the way it added to my home’s overall appearance.
Thanks so much for all your hard work.
We are thrilled with the results. Thanks for your good ideas, your attention to detail and for being so easy to work with. Also, the Stockell’s subcontractors are great. The entire process was quick, on schedule and created minimal inconvenience: all because of your professionalism. We hope we have the opportunity to refer others to you. Looking forward to a continued friendship.
We appreciate all of your hard work, attention to detail & accurate cost accounting/estimating.
We’re really enjoying the garage.
Thank you for doing such a great job on our home!
The deck is just perfect also. You were and are courteous, fast working, paid attention to details and all in all did a fantastic job on everything! Thank You!
Your work has exceeded my already high expectations.
The porch is truly fantastic…a wonderful extension of the lower level (I guess we can’t call it a basement anymore). Thank you for the design, advice and construction work you have put into it. I really enjoy working with you guys & can’t imagine working with anyone else on our projects!
Thanks so much, Don and crew, for a job so well done!
Thanks for all your patience with us and for your good advice along the way. God bless you!
