"I found Bill to be involved, responsive, and inspired. He had great sources for unusual materials, creative solutions for problem solving, and a great eye for balance and proportion. He was always available to answer my questions and he and his crew were a pleasure to be around…. No small thing for someone who’s in your house every day! I would recommend Bill and Rockpile Construction to anyone I know."

"Jan Roden said the other day, upon looking at the finished guest quarters, that we should not add much decoration because the quality of the workmanship speaks for itself. I could not agree more. So: many thanks for many small and large things which came together to create something beautiful, and full of happy memories already."

"My wife and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in this effort. You were skilled and creative, patient and resourceful. Your commitment to excellence in every detail was critical to making our plans come alive. And your good humor in the face of the inevitable setbacks may be the only thing that got us through this."

"Bill Norton has earned his great reputation as a builder and general contractor. He always impresses me with his in-depth knowledge of all facets of the business. I've recommended him to many of my clients- all of whom have been very happy with his work. I've used him for two projects on my own home and look forward to working together again in the future."
Charlottesville Sunroom and Porch

"Bill Norton and his company performed a total remodel on our house in Charlottesville. He achieved our goals and came within the budget; the house looks great. Bill was very professional and courteous and continues to help us with other projects on the property. If I were to build anything new or remodel again in the Charlottesville area, I would insist on using him again."
UVA Area Addition and Remodel

"Over the past several years, Bill Norton has worked on numerous projects for our farm, including the construction of our Farm Manager's home and the addition of 10 stalls and an apartment to our barn. The quality of his work has been outstanding and the pricing fair. Importantly, we have enjoyed working with him as have our architects. Rockpile is definitely our preferred contractor!" Albemarle Country Farmhouse

"Bill Norton and Rockpile Construction tackled this complex pavilion addition to an existing pool house with only some sketch ideas and very few details. Desiring an open wood ceiling with exposed beams, we doubled up the rafters to create an aesthetically pleasing structure. The result is stunning; the framing is precise and the finish work is excellent. Thanks to Bill and his crew, we now have a wonderfully unique and beautiful pavilion that we use as an outdoor living and dining area throughout the spring, summer, and fall."
