The Mausoleum Development Process


Forever Legacy takes great care at every stage of the mausoleum design and construction process to ensure a flawless experience and exceptional product. Learn more about the stages of a mausoleum build.

1. Consultation & Design

Mausoleum DesignEvery new mausoleum first begins as an idea. The task for each member of the Forever Legacy team is to execute flawlessly in turning your idea into reality. From the first phone call through to the completion of the construction of your exquisitely designed and elegantly appointed master crafted mausoleum, co-founder and CEO of Forever Legacy, Ron Browning will work with you, side by side, in creating your eternal memorial.

During the consultation and design process, Mr. Browning will meet with you to develop your mausoleum concept, bringing in ideas that reflect your life and legacy. During the consultative process, the size and location of your mausoleum will be determined as well.

From there, our design team brings your mausoleum to life through architectural or CAD drawings. Quarrying of the stone will only begin after your mausoleum perfectly meets your exacting expectations.

2. Quarrying

Granite QuarryingForever Legacy mausoleums are built from the finest American granite (view our available colors). Each private mausoleum is custom built starting with cutting the right piece of granite in the quarry. Large blocks of colored granite are quarried, and then taken to our craftsmen for cutting. Each piece is cut to exacting measurements for precise construction of your granite mausoleum.

3. Stone Carving

Stone CarvingThe master craftsmen of Forever Legacy are the best in the business. They use power and hand tools to create custom finishes on the granite, carve names, and create large or intricate details. Our craftsmen shape blocks of granite into majestic columns and sculpt the capitals to reflect the mausoleum style. Sculptures, friezes, and bas-reliefs are created with expert handwork. Our stoneworkers are world renowned for their craft.

4. Packing & Shipping
