He is a former homebuilder, company founder and chief designer. Originally from Philadelphia and graduate of Drexel University, Bill began his construction career in Atlanta building homes in 1973. In 1986, he shifted his emphasis to housing design and began a large portfolio of house plans that continues to grow to this day.
Growing up in the trades was invaluable for Kevin. He is a home designer and has a wealth of building and remodeling experience. After attending Southern Polytechnic, he spent years learning the art of design as well as the CAD program. After doing some building of his own, Kevin still has a love for design.
William’s interest in historical architecture and his experience working as a builder himself led him to start WLRD in 1987, working with both builders and clients who wanted a custom home design. Over the years it grew into a family business, and we’re still designing houses and updating existing home plans to reflect today’s lifestyles.
