Our Team

Kevin Reed, Owner

Kevin grew up in the Midwest but has lived in several different areas around the country. He obtained a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Virginia and his MBA from the University of Dallas. After working in Dallas for 6 years as a mechanical engineer, he transferred to a technology company in Delaware. He continued to apply his engineering and project management skills as the engineering manager before deciding to start BlueStone Construction in 1999. His goal from the very first moment was to become the very best luxury home builder in the Western North Carolina area. His philosophy from the beginning was simple; treat the clients and their home as if you were building it for yourself, and build the home to last for generations. After building homes for nearly 20 years, he has many satisfied clients in the area who appreciate his attention to detail, his creative approach to problem solving, and who value his integrity. In Kevin’s spare time, he enjoys traveling with his sons to different areas of the country and occasionally working on his 1967 Corvette convertible. He also enjoys hiking on the many trails in the area, checking out the different waterfalls.

Kurt Kvandal, Project Manager

Kurt originally hails from Chicago, but spent a lot of time on the Great Lakes around Buffalo during college before coming to his senses and moving to WNC. Building Science is his passion and he closely follows the latest techniques for advancing our craft.He enjoys spending time with his wife and 3 daughters, is somewhat fond of a good whiskey, and never without the proper tool on the job.

William Ammann

William is our go to guy when we need to make something happen.  “I will handle it” is the most frequent response I hear when we ask William to take on a task.  William is skilled in both carpentry and is our primary metalworker in the company, in charge of large steel fabrications, like gates, metal trellis’s. William and his wife reside in Fletcher along with their young son.  William has been a coach many times for his son’s soccer team.

Leslie Cantrell

Leslie is a true master carpenter able to accomplish every task thrown at him.  He has been with Bluestone the longest of all of our employees, 15 years.  Over the years, out of necessity, Leslie has developed techniques and jigs to allow him to do a lot of work by himself which would ordinarily require two people.

Joshua Malpass

Josh has worked with wood all of his life, from an early age in Wyoming, to a stint in the Peace Corps, to many years working with reclaimed lumber, Josh is our wood authority.  He is excellent at fabricating large pieces like cabinets, bookcases, mantels. Joshua and his family live in Hendersonville, but many weekends he is camping or hiking with his son.  He loves being outside enjoying nature.

Marco Sanchez

Marco has a fantastic attitude and is a pleasure to work with.  He absolutely never refuses to take on a task, no matter how unpleasant.

National Associations

Kevin is a contributing member of the Pacesetters, a Builder 20 group organized by the National Association of Home Builders.  This group represents the cream of the crop of builders across the country, who are interviewed and chosen by the group from non – competing markets.  The Pacesetters group meets biannually and consults regularly to share knowledge and expertise in the building industry, offering advice on financial decisions, building performance issues, and problem solving .  The result is elevated home building standards and professionalism for the members of the group.  This  creates a better home and a better process for all involved.
