150+ Years of combined experience.


1975

The average price of gas is 44 cents per gallon, Microsoft invents the first personal computer and Steve Homola serves as an apprentice in a family masonry business in southwestern Washington. He then moves to Minneapolis, and after a short period of other contract mason opportunities, Homola Masonry is born.

1995

O.J. Simpson is acquitted in the “trial of the century”, NASA spacecraft Galileo arrives at Jupiter- six years after its launch and the world sees a decrease in the all-masonry fireplace as a common feature in the typical home. The ‘Stonwerk’ name is born and Stonwerk refocuses its attention to reviving the almost-forgotten art of stone masonry, which had been all but eliminated in the modern world and in our region — the Minneapolis residential market.

2015

America goes through one of its worst economic downturns and cloud computing comes into use for the public. Stonwerk moves its shop and office from Mound to Watertown. We bring our first 3-axis CNC router and wiresaw to increase our on-site capability and masonry service. We use Raken and Smartsheet to improve employee communication and we’re now a fourth-generation family business.
