When builder Joseph McHallam speaks of the multiple roles he played in the design and construction of the Stone Canyon home he shares with his wife and family, he reflects both confidence and pride. “I wore many hats,” he says, laughing. “I’m a contractor with an eye for design and detail from 25 years of experience building high-end homes back in New England, so I guess you could say I already had a solid foundation in good taste.”
For this, his first home building venture in Oro Valley, McHallam partnered with architect Ron Robinette, who was involved early in the site selection. “The lot was on a golf course with great city and desert views,” Robinette recalls. “Though set on 2 acres, the building envelope was small with a strange configuration, and two-thirds of it was natural rock outcroppings in protected no-build zones. I was there primarily to make sure everything went smoothly and to assist with the process.”
