Sean Moore, owner, and operator of Moore- Stone LLC. He is an expert Artisan Mason with over 15 years of experience. After high school, Sean, a lead singer of his local band-Wise Eyes, ventured across the country playing live gigs and visiting nature’s natural wonders. Mountains, Forests, Beaches, and deserts.

For work, he started as a Masonry Laborer at 18 and worked his way to Lead Mason. Sean received additional training in Haiti under the Sitwayen Development group under Mike Stewart. Mike Stewart is the CEO of Sitwayen Development Group.

Through that experience, Sean was a project manager. He grew and was able to know what it takes to be a team and to grow a company. He learned good daily healthy habits and a business mindset. Haiti was life-changing for him. So after that experience, he couldn’t help but want less.

I met him for the second time when he lived in a van. His minimalistic lifestyle was appealing. He spent most of his time booking gigs for his band. Although for him things changed dramatically. He saw a journey with me and my kids. A journey he wanted. He saw a different and better life for me and my children.

So he built this company. He started working 12-16 hr days on all projects and stone by stone his hard work was all in. ANY jobs big or small. He started with a 5k$ loan and 97$k in sales that year ALONE. In just under 5 years he now has 7 subcontractors, 10 employees, 5 vehicles, 3 kids 2 dogs, &cat.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Hiring, firing, and helping employees work together as a team. Helping them forget their problems and work on the projects. Developing good boss boundaries.

Staying organized. Developing systems and procedures.

All of these areas have been what Ruthie’s role in the company has been, since the beginning.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Moore-Stone?
Moore-Stone works primarily with block brick and stone. We can do anything masonry-repair all the way to a luxury backyard design. These backyard designs are created by Ruthie Moore the Creative Director and mocked up by Sean Moore.

Sean is the graphic designer for his VIP 3D software. This is so cool because you can virtually get a glimpse at your new backyard before breaking any ground! What sets us apart is we are a husband and wife company duo.

We have done it all together. Through blood sweat, fighting, and tears of stress but mainly joy! I help Sean with structural business, marketing, write-ups, legal and HR, and company communication services.

What matters most to you? Why?
During the whole process in the end safety matters most. I am not going to be cheaper or lower prices to help people afford me. I want to make sure that all of the jobs are done right.

You have families on these structures. You want them strong and built to last. So with that, more time and money into digging, ground prep, and ground material for foundations. All of which takes research, training, education, and licensing.

So what matters most is the structure we build is strong, sturdy, safe, beautiful, and functional. So we may be more pricey than your “other guy” -but we are definitely more sure about what we are doing.

It’s cliche, but safety first.

Pricing:

  • Starting projects no less than $3,000k-$5,000k $5,000k-$10K $10k-$20k $20k-$60k $60k-$100K $100k+
