D&D Building, Inc., dba Dreams & Design Building, has debunked the common myth that building green demands sacrifice and compromise in design and comfort. Instead, by artfully incorporating green building concepts, they have been able to greatly enhance the livability and function of each home for their unique needs. It is accomplished through a wonderful, collaborative and creative process.
Kevin Stallings, President of Dreams & Design Building and a CGB (Certified Green Builder), has earned an impressive level of success during his 23 years of building truely custom homes. His years of experience has taught him many important lessons. None more important, however, than to listen to his clients. Stallings is willing to conform his building techniques to fit what the consumer truly wants. This “customer satisfaction focused” approach, along with an acute attention to detail, have allowed Stallings to construct some of the most beautifully crafted, energy efficient, thoughtfully designed, and structurally sound custom homes in the area.
Now, Dreams & Design Building has been recognized by EnergyStar.gov as the #1 Builder of single family Energy Star Certified 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 38—and counting!
“All design work is done in-house. We believe that the key to buyer satisfaction is builder performance. 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 come to me drawn on napkins and even sketched out on notebook paper.”
The overall efficiency of Stallings’ homes is impressive! Dreams and Design Buildings’ average HERS score, (the rating given to determine qualification for Energy Star certification), was a “52” for homes built since 2012. A non-Energy Star home simply built to today's construction code would register a score of 100. The “52” score means that the homes built by Dreams and Design are approximately 50% more efficient than a new home built to code.
“Today, our homeowners can enjoy all of the extra benefits that Green Building offers,” Stallings added. “We are committed to our customers and dedicated to designing and building homes that last a lifetime. Throughout the construction of our homes, we work closely with each client to ensure they get exactly what they want.”
“As trends change, we strive to keep our designs fluid and timely. These are the key components that create our most valuable asset, our reputation. It is a reputation that has been built as carefully as our finest homes. It is earned again and again. Each time we utilize our experience and resources in the creation of a new TRUE custom home.”
Dreams & Design Building is building in the Missouri communities of Stone Canyon in Blue Springs, Oaks of Edgewood in Oak Grove, and the Kansas neighborhoods of Ridgestone Meadows in Shawnee and Falcon Lakes in Basehor.
