"The Crew"

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. 

Matthew Olliffe, Owner, Company Principal

Matt is a licensed General Contractor, who moved to Bainbridge Island from London, England in 2003.  In addition to meeting with clients andmanaging 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 a constant presence on all Stonehaven Home's job sites. 

Outside of work, Matt and his wife Tanya are the parents to three active children.  And you may spot Matt kayaking, biking, hiking, or doing a cross-fit workout.
