“Forever” is generally accepted to mean lasting or permanent. For Dreams & Design Building, “Forever” defines the high impact, high quality homes they construct for their clients. Of course, “Forever” is relative to each home owner’s situation. Whether your goal is to build now with the intention of moving up at a later date, or building your last home, Kevin Stallings, President of Dreams & Design Building, is dedicated to providing you a home designed and constructed to be lasting and/or permanent— to “Forever” fulfill your needs and desires.
Since a new home is one of life’s biggest investments and must provide for your needs for years to come, Stallings believes every home owner should be involved in the entire process of designing and building their home. Ultimately it’s about the relationship you develop with your builder, not the price. As Stallings says, “Some can design but not build, while others can build but not design—we do it all”.
Kevin Stallings, a CGP (Certified Green Professional), has achieved a remarkable level of success during his more then 25 years of building award-winning homes. This longevity has resulted in many valuable lessons learned. Perhaps the most important of these lessons is to be versatile. He is willing to conform his building techniques to fit what the customer demands. This “customer satisfaction focused” approach, along with an acute attention to detail, has resulted in some of the most beautifully crafted, energy efficient, custom designed and structurally sound homes in the area.
Their design-build process allows them to combine construction management with traditional architectural and interior finish services while maximizing the attributes and potential of the home sites and surroundings that others do not. This is imperative to ensure that the customer’s total vision is realized.
“All design work is done in-house. We believe that the key to buyer satisfaction is builder performance—and it is our goal to provide the highest quality in every phase of the building process,” explains Stallings. “We will customize any of our plans, build a plan you already have or design a unique home from "scratch" just for you. I’ve had ideas brought to me drawn on napkins and even sketched out on notebook paper.”
Additionally, Dreams & Design Building has been recognized by EnergyStar.gov as the #1 Builder of single family Energy Star Certified 3.0 homes in the Kansas City market. This recognition is a direct result of Stallings’ dedication to constructing homes that exceed industry efficiency standards in every way. Still today, there are a limited number of home builders in the area that are constructing a few homes that are Energy Star qualified Version 3.0 homes. The number of Energy Star 3.0 Certified homes Stallings has built is at 65—and Counting!
Dreams & Design Building specializes in building in golf course communities, including Stone Canyon in Blue Springs, MO, Falcon Lakes in Basehor and Greens Of Chapel Creek in Shawnee. They are also currently building in the Missouri community of Oaks of Edgewood in Oak Grove, and the Kansas neighborhood of Ridgestone Meadows in Shawnee. Their homes range in price from the $350s to over $1M.
Dreams & Design Building is also constructing quality homes on acreage. The knowledge Kevin Stallings has gained from his 25+ years of experience is essential to planning and building a home on rural acreage. He knows how a piece of land can look like the perfect situation to build a home on. He also knows there could be many challenges in building on acreage. It takes a builder with the right experience, such as Stallings, to recognize the difference. Issues such as soil type, the presence of ledge, high water tables, poor drainage and even zoning and other restrictions are just some of the issues that can complicate construction and increase costs.
However, when Kevin is evaluating a building site he has the experience to know that many site problems can be overcome and some can even be turned into assets with a little creativity. By planning ahead and working closely with each client, he is able to balance aspirations and creative design concerns with budget and construction realities. Building a home on acreage demands industry leading project management processes to eliminate the guesswork, reduce risk and support a collaborative effort to ensure a successful building project.
“From site analysis, to design, through selections, and on to construction and closing...no other builder offers the talent and expertise that we provide,” Stallings explains. “We are committed to helping each customer build the exact home design they envision—one that will fulfill their ‘Forever’ needs.”
