Kevin has construction in his veins after starting work in the industry when he was just 12 years old. In the mid-late 90s he did extensive heavy log work while living in Colorado, but he and his wife, Lillie, loved the mountains of North Carolina and decided to make the move. They started 4 Forty Four in 2001 as a way to bring years of experience in construction, custom log work, timber framing, design and project management together with a unique vision.
During the downturn in the economy that took place between 2007 and 2010, we had to restructure our business model in order to stay in business. Prior to those difficult times we were home builders, but from those circumstances came the realization that we wanted to be a full service firm. We are grateful for having come through that time, and the lessons that came as a result. We were faced with a choice, and we chose to take the opportunity to re-invent ourselves. Every challenge teaches us something new. The lessons may be hard to quantify, but they have proven to be true assets!
