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.
