There’s an old saying that goes, “It’s hard to be mad in a nice kitchen.”

That’s because nice kitchens are often the social hubs of our homes. They’re also places that inspire us to create tasty treats and memorable meals.

            In fact, a study by the Happiness Research Institute found that our homes account for more of our overall happiness than just about anything else in life. And we are especially happy if we are proud of our homes and find them comforting.

            That’s where the folks at Classic Stoneworks can help.

            Since 2005, they have been “Idaho’s first choice in quality stone fabrication,” offering hundreds of options of granite, quartz, marble, and more for counters, fire places and tubs, both indoors and out.

            “We do it all, from sales to creating the template to delivery and installation and we work with just about every local contractor,” Jennifer Jensen explained from Classic Stoneworks’ new office at 141 Citation Way (the “Airport Road”) in Hailey.

            Jennifer runs the Hailey office of the Jerome-based business. Brian Neace and Jennifer’s husband, Troy Jensen, are the owners and they recently opened a location in the Wood River Valley to meet the growing local business.

            “We do a lot of work in the area and we wanted to make things easier,” Jennifer said, from their new Hailey office where they can show customers and contractors samples and design options. They even have their full inventory of every slab at their yard in Jerome live online at

            Taking advantage of state of the art technology is actually at the core of the company’s success.

            “We’ve invested in the best technology in the industry so we can offer quick and quality turn around times, “Jennifer said. “We pride ourselves on our ability to meet deadlines so we’re not holding anything else up.”

             Classic Stoneworks carries stone from all over the world and they enjoy doing jobs of all sizes and price points, because they are truly motivated by making their customers happy.

            “Our favorite thing about the job is working with our customers. We pride ourselves on taking care of everything, from the beginning to the end, from picking out the product to follow up calls afterwards to make sure everyone is satisfied,” Jennifer said. “When the finished product is in the home and everyone is happy I just love it.”
