This Is Our Story
Kevin Ward, a native of Pensacola, FL grew up in the building industry. It was only natural he would take that experience and become one of the areas premier custom builders. He along with his wife Donna founded K. W. Homes in 1988 quickly establishing it as an award winning company. K. W. Homes has built hundreds of custom homes in Northwest Florida and South Alabama. Styles vary from traditional and country farmhouse to contemporary bungalows and water front homes, ranging in size from 1500 sq. ft. to over 11,000 sq. ft. Kevin personally knows each of his clients. He is involved with every project, helping clients see his or her dream home come to fruition. This ability to build a wide variety of homes along with the willingness to work with clients on an individual basis to meet their needs and desires truly makes Kevin a custom builder.
K. W. Homes has participated in the local Parade of Homes for many years and has built dozens of award winning homes; including Outstanding Home Award for several price categories as well as Best Kitchen, Best Bath and the Peoples Choice Award numerous times. In 1995 the Homebuilders Association of NW FL selected K. W.

Partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital the show home saw over 17,000 visitors and raised over $30,000 in charitable funds. The Show Home was featured in the October 1997 issue of Southern Living.
Changes and Mergers
2010 brought about changes for K. W. Homes. Kevin merged K. W. Homes with CHB of NW FL creating a unique partnership. This new partnership offered a buying power not found with other custom homebuilders, while maintaining the same level of custom homes they built their reputation upon.
