Specializing in Quality Stone and Woodwork.
Focal Point Construction is a small owner-operated company that delivers custom, handcrafted stone and carpentry projects. Our attention to detail, integrity and commitment to doing the job ‘right’ combine to create projects that can change the entire feel of your home. Each project is custom designed with the client from inception to completion. Bring your own inspiration to the project, but also leverage our experience to guide and help your project come to fruition. 

Owner operator, Pat Slattery, brings a unique set of skills as a certified arborist, a BS in horticulture, real estate entrepreneur, journeyman construction worker and former owner of a successful tree care and landscaping business. These combined experiences have provided a deep understanding of how to improve both interior and exterior spaces to complement, or even transform, your existing environment.

We apply solid construction principles to implement your vision, using only the very best, locally sourced stone, wood, and materials. From start to finish, Focal Point Construction delivers quality. We don’t cut corners and believe in doing the job right the first time.

We realize that we are working in your home. So, every possible step is taken to minimize mess, finish projects efficiently, and to be as unobtrusive as possible. We work over drop cloths, protect floors, cover existing furniture and fixtures, cut materials outside, and do our best to confine our disruption to the specified work area. We consider ourselves guests in your house that are there to complete the desired task.

What Clients Are Saying.

  • Focal Point Construction has done 3 projects at my house in the last 2 years. I would recommend them to everyone. They are fairly priced and the craftsmanship is second to none.


  • We recently remodeled our house. Pat Slattery / Focal Point Construction finished 2 fireplaces, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. Both turned out excellent. We get compliments from everyone who sees them. I work in commercial construction and can say that the project was completed on time, on budget and is of superior quality.


  • Pat Slattery redid our fireplace. He removed the 1970s -looking stone and replaced it with new stone. It completely changed the look and feel of the main room in our house. We have had multiple contractors in our house since moving in. Pat was certainly the hardest working. We will be using Focal Point for our next project.


  • Our old wall was drab, dated and just not functional. The new one is clean, updated and fits our home perfectly. Exactly what we were looking for.
