Preconstruction Planning

We'll help you make the right decisions. Reflecting on 26 years of experience, we've learned that our most important skill is listening to you.


Your decisions can be brought to life. With traditional methods and/or state-of-the-art 3D printing, Third Stone can make certain that your dreams translate to reality.


We handle everything for you. Our mission is to make your life easier while your structure progresses into everything you want it to be.



Third Stone is a builder committed to the simple ideals of quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service. Over the last two decades, founder Jerry Messner has forged a solid reputation for delivering quality homes at competitive prices.


After gaining years of experience through his backgrounds in landscaping, architecture and construction, Jerry envisioned a better way to build homes. And a better way to take care of customers.

Building upon these ideals, Third Stone takes a “form follows function” approach. While we focus on creativity, innovation and structural integrity… a happy homeowner is our Top Priority.

Third Stone knows that price is important to homebuyers, but what they don’t see is what is important to the builder. That’s why Third Stone incorporates only the highest quality products into the structures they build for you. 

Regardless of the size and scope of the project, Third Stone’s philosophy is that All Customers Are Equally Important. We work closely with you and listen to exactly what you want. We work twice as hard to deliver your needs and desires quickly, properly and professionally. We understand that without the buyer there is no builder.


Our mission is to make your home-buying experience as smooth as possible, exceed your expectations, and become your builder for the future.

Semi-Custom Homes



Third Stone Construction features intimate new home communities in various desirable locations throughout Chicagoland. 



These communities feature an inventory of “ready to build” plans to which our clients make custom changes.  This plan inventory includes “forward thinking” house plans that do away with tired old designs and provide layouts that recognize current lifestyles.  And with a strong list of luxury standard features, you can anticipate a new home that meets your interior design expectations.

When you build in one of these communities, you enjoy the benefits of choosing an existing plan combined with customization of the home.   This accelerates the construction critical path and gets you into your new home more quickly. 


Another key element that helps shorten the timeline…no construction financing is needed!  Third Stone can provides the lot, plans, and financing for you so you can enjoy the “custom” home building process on a more efficient scale.  Ask us for more details about the semi-custom home community that most interests you.​!
