With more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry, Kevin Stallings, President of D&B Building (dba Dreams & Design Building) has a philosophy which shows in every home he builds -- Build a quality product and the customers will come.
“I’ve always put my clients’ needs first,” says Stallings. “I work diligently to ensure that my homebuyers get the most competitive pricing while always maintaining the highest standards of quality for their price range.”
“I strongly believe in building with high-quality materials and knowledgeable craftsman. We go above and beyond the basic building practices to ensure that our homebuyers get the homes of their dreams,” explains Stallings.
A strong advocate of energy-efficiency, 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 the industry efficiency standards in every way. The number of Energy Star 3.0 Certified homes Stallings has built is currently 79 and counting.
With building licenses in Missouri and Kansas, Dreams and Designs Building is current building in Stone Canyon, (Blue Springs Missouri) Cottonwood Canyon, (Lenexa, Kansas) Red Fox Run, (Overland Park, Kansas) Monticello, (Lee’s Summit, Missouri) Greens at Chapel Creek, (Shawnee, Kansas) Falcon Lakes, (Basehor, Kansas) and acreage throughout the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
Since a new home is one of life’s biggest investments and must provide for your needs for years to come, Stallings believes every homeowner should be involved in the creative process of designing and building their homes. Ultimately it’s about the relationship you develop with your builder. 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. His longevity has resulted in many valuable lessons learned. Perhaps the most important of these lessons is to be versatile. He is able to conform his building techniques to fit what the customer need. . His “customer satisfaction focused” approach, along with an acute sense of detail, has resulted in some of the most beautifully crafted, energy efficient, custom designed and structurally sound homes in the area.
The company’s design-build approach allows them to combine construction knowledge with luxury architectural and interior finishes while maximizing the attributes of the home sites and surroundings.
“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 possible in every phase of the building process,” explains Stallings. “We can customize any of our portfolio of plans, build a plan you already have or design a unique home from "scratch" just for you. I’ve had home ideas brought to me drawn on napkins and even sketched out on notebook paper.”
“From site analysis, home design, selection of materials, construction management and design consultation, no other builder offers the talent and expertise that we provide,” Stallings explains. “We are the one-stop shop building company that is committed to building the home of your dreams!”
Customers Say it All
“When you tell your friends and relatives that you’re building a home, the statement is usually followed by a long pause, a worried look and then a simple ‘Good luck’. When we were met with these expressions, we said that no, it’s really not like that. From our first meeting with Kevin, we knew we wanted him to build our new home. He listens and then generates ideas to customize your home to fit the needs of your family. It is very evident he takes pride in his craft. He also surrounds himself with people on his team who share his same ideals for respect to his clients. There was always help available when we had a question or concern. During the building process, we were kept informed of every detail. There were no “surprises.” During each stage, Kevin personally meets with the homeowners and the different trades to discuss the next phase. By doing this, more ideas are generated, items are not missed and our home was customized especially for us.”

"We have been in our home since January of 2012 and we love every moment in it. Our experience with Kevin Stallings and his sub-contractors surpassed our expectations. Coming from a family of construction and sub-contractors we are very particular to details and Kevin, along with his crews, helped us make the developing of our home a pleasurable experience. We never felt pressured or confused about any of the details or costs through the process. Kevin was fantastic at keeping us and the sub-contractors on schedule. He is particular to details as well and voices his opinion but always listened to our as well to make the best possible choice.

“Our Dreams & Design custom home was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We met with five different builders prior to meeting with Kevin and Lan Stallings. From the beginning, we knew they were who we wanted to build our home. Unlike the previous builders, Kevin and Lan took an incredible amount of time to listen to our needs and then design the home we desired. We knew that an energy efficient home was a requirement and were very pleased to find 3.0 Energy Star homes are D&D’s specialty! Our heating and cooling system is 95% efficient, the highest efficiencies we could find in the industry for our region. We were told our home would be insulated to prevent energy loss, and when the energy efficiency tests were conducted, I was told by the technicians our test results were some of the best they had seen in several years! The building process from beginning to completion took about 9 months. The craftsmanship by all of the subcontractors was incredible and is very evident to others in the construction industry who have visited our home. We are extremely happy with our D&D home and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a quality built, Energy Star, custom home.”
