Steven Ballantyne

Owner / Consultant / Project Manager

Steven Ballantyne was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and grew up here in Jacksonville, Florida. He is a truly gifted craftsman with over twelve years of experience in the field of construction. From a young age he seemed to be following the footsteps of his father, David Ballantyne; always wanting to help out with the next project, whether it was building a new table or adding on a new garage to their home. His love and interest in building led to him taking four years of wood shop in school which helped give him a professional and organized approach in planning and building.

While Steven was a student, he worked with a small family owned business that grew from four employees to over forty within a short period of time. They were craftsmen working in home remodeling and new construction for decks, patios, pergolas, and outdoor kitchens. Over the years, this business turned into one of the largest and most reputable companies in town, of which Steven is very proud to have been a part.

Steven has worked in every phase of construction from field labor, project management, to consulting and design, and now owning and operating his own business. He is intimately familiar with all aspects and nuances of a job, and that’s what makes it so easy to work with him.

Hawkstone Outdoor Design is a company that caters to the goals and vision of each client individually. Steven, above all, listens to his clients’ needs and creates his designs based on that. This is why Hawkstone’s portfolio contains a unique and diverse mix of styles and will continue to grow over time. His main objective is to clarify the ideas and goals for each client and to turn them into a reality tailored to their style and taste.

Steven’s free time is spent mostly with family and friends. He lives at the beach and loves to be outdoors. You’ll likely see him on the golf course, surfing, sailing, or exploring local nature trails with his dog, Nugget.
