We Get It.

Ten years ago, Stuart Aldrich relocated to Newnan from Sarasota. A builder for over 26 years, Stuart partnered with Cindy Shealey, a Newnan native with over 30 years experience in home staging, marketing and customer satisfaction.

Stuart and Cindy founded The Aldrich Group, LLC in 2009 amidst a sea of naysayers, and right in the middle of a most challenging market.

With a dedication to both value and quality, The Aldrich Group built a company that stands for reliability, integrity, creativity and value. We're a one-stop shop for clients who want design ideas, creativity, and beautiful construction.

Cindy and Stuart still love the challenge of accomplishing the seemingly-impossible. Nothing excites Stuart more than hearing "others have said this can't be done."

We absolutely love building homes and creating extreme renovations.

And seeing our clients smile when the project is finished?

That's the icing on the cake!

About Us

The Aldrich Group builds exceptional homes and re-creats spaces in existing homes. We believe that homes, whether new or renovated, should exude character and warmth, and that the mark of a fine home has absolutely nothing to do with square footage.

We are at our best with clients who share our philosophy. Together, we create spaces that do three things:

  • exude a heartfelt sense of place,
  • enhance the homeowner's pleasure, and
  • increase the value of the home.

We offer design/build services for our clients who have a general idea of what they want, and want to fast-track the overall process of building.

Our goal for each project is simply to deliver exemplary services for a fair price.


Over the last few years we have had many home improvements completed at our house. These include adding lighting, total gut and remodel of kitchen, replacing all of the flooring and extensive landscaping projects. Overall we have been very fortunate with the companies and individuals we worked with. We did have a few issues but overall fairly good. Our latest project involved the total remodel of 2 of our bathrooms going all the way back to studs. We chose the Aldrich Group to complete the task. We have never used them before but I must say we were more than pleased. They helped with design and every aspect of the project.(including fixing issues from our last contractor) They did what they said they would do when they said they would do it. If you have worked with contractors you know that is sometimes not the case. Our bathrooms turned out beautifully. They may not be the cheapest but they have been the best improvement experience we have ever had. Aldrich uses a project software program. They are constantly sending you updates where they are on the project and also keep you informed of any issues, shipping delays etc. If we ever have another issue or project with our home our first call will now be to the Aldrich Group. I recommend them without hesitation.Read More

We did a major renovation on our home of 21 years. Every single room was touched in some way. After hearing rave reviews from others about The Aldrich Group, we selected them for our project. Not only was I pleasantly surprised given so many of my other home projects have not met expectations, I was super satisfied with the end result. Stuart, Cindy, and their entire crew were excellent and consummate professionals. I was particularly impressed with how well they communicated the status of the project, gave us access to their detailed project plan and timeline, and paid attention to details -- pointing out things we otherwise would have missed. Additionally, they treated us and our home with the utmost care and respect. This was particularly important as we lived in the basement while the work was being done. And did I mention that they started on time, completed on time, and stayed within our agreed upon budget? They did! Without reservation, I would highly recommend The Aldrich Group. They made us fall back in love with our home!Read More

Cindy and Stuart were awesome! They were professional in every way. We did a kitchen remodel keeping existing cabinets and adding more cabinets and custom built pantry. They were able to match existing with custom built with no problem. Cindy worked closely with us in selecting granite for countertops and tile backsplash and flooring. They installed pullouts in all existing lower cabinets. We love the finished product and would work with them again for any other remodeling in the future. I can’t say enough good things about their wotk. It was outstanding!!Read More

Working with Cindy and Stuart Aldrich was a pleasure. Our project entailed adding an all seasons sunporch to the back of the house and adding beams and redoing the fireplace in the current living area. The quality of work is nothing short of what the Aldrich's would expect in their own home. Their subcontractors were pleasant, timely and had a good knowledge of their craftsmanship. Stuart was open to our suggestions and supplemented with his own creativity. Unfortunately, we had one supplier who held up the project, but Cindy dogged them to the end to make sure our sunroom was exactly how we dreamed. We highly recommend The Aldrich Group for your renovation or addition needs. You are sure to end up with a final product you will be proud of. And who may make new friends during the process!Read More
