About The Builder

Jim McDonnell formed Timberstone Design & Development after years of working for his Father, Uncle, and Grandfather at McDonnell Development. Timberstone's architecture affiliate is IJM Group, owned by Jim's brother Ian. The two, along with their Father, strive to surpass your expectations in every aspect of your new home.
