Kalman Construction

Kevin learned the home building trade on the wind-swept island of Nantucket. His father was a homebuilder and Kevin spent much of his youth on job sites. In those days, a builder performed all of the work involved in building a house. Kevin learned how to lay blocks, frame, hang drywall, install a roof, paint, and plant the yard.South Carolina beckoned the Kalmans. In 1996 they moved the company, complete with many key employees to Charleston. They continued to build high-quality, high-end custom homes. Kevin and his work began to attract the attention of several national publications. His projects won awards and were published in magazines such as Architectural Digest, Better Homes & Gardens, House Beautiful, and Southern Living. Bob Vila was interested in the Kalman homes, and filmed a 13 segment series on Home Again with Bob Vila based on the construction of the Lifespan House in Mt. Pleasant, SC.
