StoneMakers Dealer Ryan Miller's Success Story

I, Stonemakers Dealer Ryan Miller recently finished my first job at Frank Blanchard's home in Pensacola Florida. Frank was medically discharged after he was blown up by a RPG in a special ops mission. He and his service dog Violet love the work from Stone Works USA and Stone Maker Products.

He opted to have his fire pit in his front yard to draw neighbors out of their houses so they communicate more and enjoy a nice fire. His house was one of three that survived Hurricane Ivans torrential floods on the whole island . Finding resolution from erosion issues Stone Works USA completed three retaining walls to alleviate the run off from heavy water.

While I was in school at StoneMakers I posted a ad for my services on Craigslist.This landed me my first job without having to wait until I got back.  This led me to transition from school to my first account without having to wait. I gave my customer a discount if he would get involved with every step of the process and work hands on with site prep, pouring of the concrete and coloring.

Later he told me that giving him the option to join in and help was the best medicine that money could buy. Giving him colors to choose from and letting him design his own color pattern really works well with PTSD patients. Great therapy he says, and the look of his physical appearance shows it. Great work with a great product really makes the job easier!!

Thank you StoneMakers!!
Ryan Miller
