About KDI Homes

Ted Kostich - KDI HomesFor someone who has been in the construction business for 39 years, he needs no introduction. Nevertheless, we can't shy away from the fact that whatever Ted Kostich has achieved in all these years is a result of his hard work, adherence to the principles of honesty in business and steadily honed skills in construction. These qualities and more have evolved him to the Hands-On Builder we know today. Ted began his career humbly as a carpenter's helper but soon showcased exceptional skills, so much so, that he started his own carpentry business. He hasn't looked back since. Ted worked as superintendent for a large residential builder beginning in 1985 and in a span of only 3 years he earned a promotion as the project manager of that company. While wielding this post he was responsible for all residential home construction and land development projects.

As the top Fernandina Beach Home Builder, he is recognized for framing gorgeous homes, building useful porches and patios and incomparable interior trim work. And the best thing about building with Ted is that he is committed to the task himself. No wonder why he says – "You hire me, you get me"! You obviously would want to have a Hands-On Builder build your family's home and with KDI Homes, you get exactly that.

In 1991 Ted started his own home building company specializing in single family homes with a focus on quality construction and working one on one with his clients. Over the past 24 years Ted has built homes with prices starting in the $300,000's, always keeping his project load low so he could focus his attention on high quality and always being able to be directly involved in the day to day jobsite activities and client relations.

Ted and his wife of 30 years relocated to beautiful Amelia Island where Ted concentrates on building using the best quality techniques and integrating "Green Building Products" whenever possible. And as always, Ted "The Nail Bag Builder" will be present on your project every step of the way bringing his 39 year experience with him.
