Stonehaven Homes is an employee-owned company with a team of long-serving carpenters and a number of local and reliable sub-contractors who call Bainbridge Island home. This community-based company was established in 2003 and relies almost entirely on its reputation and word-of-mouth for continuing work and future projects.
Almost 95% of the work undertaken remains on the island, and over half of our projects are for repeat clients.
Stonehaven Homes aims to cultivate long-term relationships with Bainbridge Island residents who need our services, from rough framing to high-end finish carpentry, as well as all other general contracting needs.
Matt Olliffie, Owner, Company Principle
Matt is a licensed General Contractor who moved to Bainbridge Island from London, England, in 2003. In addition to meeting with clients and managing the business, he enjoys meeting with clients; he also enjoys working with the crew. He has over 25 years of framing and carpentry experience and is constantly on all of Stonehaven Home’s job sites.
Outside of work, Matt and his wife, Tanya, are the parents of three active children. And you may spot Matt kayaking, biking, hiking, or doing a cross-fit workout.
Jeremy Holland, Project Leader,
Jeremy is the longest-serving employee at Stonehaven Homes, with over 30 years of experience in carpentry on projects ranging from framing to finish trim. He has been working with Stonehaven since 2007. A long-time resident of Bainbridge, Jeremy hails from Sheffield, England, and is the “full Monty of construction.” A relaxed and humorous companion on the job site, Jeremy specializes in high-end finish carpentry.
Jeremy is passionate about soccer, his English heritage, and world travel. If he’s not working, he’s probably halfway around the world watching the big game.
Eli Wentzel, Carpenter
Eli is one of our hardest-working employees. Always ahead of our schedule, ready and eager to take on any project, Eli has grown in stature and confidence within the company since he was 17. He is now working and leading his framing projects with minimal supervision. Eli prefers the faster-paced framing and remodeling work and will continue to specialize in those areas. He is a Bainbridge Island High School graduate with over six years of experience with Stonehaven Homes.
Benjamin Olliffe, Apprentice Carpenter
Having completed his AA in Construction Management, Ben decided to take a break from college and is now a full-time employee of Stonehaven Homes, learning the trade from the ground up.
He was a Bainbridge High School Valedictorian in 2017, and his technical ability in the office has streamlined our customer support and services. He plans to complete his Batchelor’s degree online while continuing to be a full-time employee of Stonehaven Homes.
