Our History 

While in college in 1984 Kevin West began proving house plans for building contractors and individuals in Stark County, Ohio.  In the fall of 1984 West founded K.B.West Design.  He operated the small business part-time while he completed college and started his career in the construction industry.  In the fall of 1986 West joined the Schneider Lumber Company where worked during the day and drew house plans for contractors at night.   In 1989 West began to upgrade his small business to respond to the increased building market in Stark County.  K.B.West was one of the first residential designers to utilize computer aided design technology in the state of Ohio.  West also incorporated his business and changed the name to K.B.West Company, Inc.

In the winter of 1992 West left the Schneider Lumber Company to pursue his own business on a full time basis.  West moved his business offices into a small storefront on State Route 212 in Wilkshire Hills (Bolivar, Ohio).  K.B.West grew rapidly and soon employed three full time drafters.   The company provided plans all over northeastern and east central Ohio.  K.B. West proved more than 350 house plans annually.  In 1994 the company moved into its new office building on Welton Road next door to his personal residence just outside of the Village of Zoar. 

K.B.West design began to offer more than just house plans.  The company provided contract drafting services for commercial projects preparing construction documents and presentation renderings.  In addition, K.B.West provided working shop drawings and detailed woodwork and fixture designs. 

Over the years K.B.West has had to adapt to changes in the economy and building markets.  The company specialized in more elaborate and complex designs for high end custom homes.  West also provided facility planning and large project construction consulting.  

In 2013, West restructured the corporation and returned the company’s original 1984 name  K.B.West Design.  In the winter of 2015, West moved the offices from Bolivar to their current location on Fulton Road in Canton near the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Over the years K.B.West has provided more than 4,000 design projects and continues to provide one of the most detailed and creative services in the industry today.
