About Us


Our Story: A Legacy of Quality and Dedication

At the heart of River Stonework, a distinguished outdoor living company gracing the North Florida region, lies the captivating story of a dynamic husband and wife duo: Phill and Rafaela Raposo. Phill fondly quips, “My wife is the heart of this company, and I am the brains.” 

Originating from Brazil, destiny brought Phill and Rafaela together in the golden state of California during their college years. United by their pursuit of learning English and exploring the American dream, their paths converged, setting the stage for a remarkable journey. 

Phill, a versatile individual with a background in journalism, business, and marketing, brings a kaleidoscope of skills to the venture. Rafaela’s life, intricately woven with construction from her engineer father’s influence, seasoned her with a deep understanding of the trade.

California served as their training ground, where Rafaela immersed herself in the stone distribution industry, unraveling its essence and operations. This pivotal experience not only honed her knowledge but also infused her with a profound appreciation for the industry’s ethos.

Today, the couple, accompanied by their spirited 8-year-old son, has transplanted their aspirations to flourish within the fertile grounds of St. Johns County. Phill shares, “We don’t take for granted the opportunity to be here and work here. We want to do right by the community and build good relationships with our neighbors.”

However, River Stonework’s true essence goes beyond brick and mortar; it’s about weaving intricate bonds through meticulously crafted outdoor living spaces. Florida’s inviting weather finds a perfect companion in these spaces, fostering precious moments of togetherness for families and friends.
