I hired Andy and his wonderful team to build my home in 2010. I have a handicapped child and needed a house that would accommodate his needs as well as prove to be comfortable and aesthetically pleasing to the rest of the family. Andy understood exactly what I needed as he took the time to really get to know our family and understand our unique circumstances.
The finished project was a masterpiece in function and design. I wanted a rustic cottage feel for our lake home and Homoly delivered above and beyond what I had imagined. From the beams in the living room to the stone work on the double fireplaces, the house fits perfectly into its wooded setting. Sustainability is also very important to me and Andy is passionate about incorporating " green" concepts into the homes he builds and has a wealth of knowledge in this area. Every living space in the house is heated and cooled with a state of the art geothermal system. It is wonderfully energy efficient and ecologically sound, as well.
Andy took the time to really listen to what I needed to properly and safely care for my disabled child in his own environment. The entire house is ADA accessible with extra wide doorways , flat entries, a lift to the basement to allow my son access to every area in the home, and a handicapped accessible bathroom built directly into my son's bedroom suite.
Building a custom home is a huge project and stressful by definition, however, Andy, Guy and the rest of the Homoly team were wonderful to work with throughout the journey. From the planning meetings to the site visits I always believed I was in the best of hands. Their work ethic and professionalism is exemplary and the pride they take in their work is apparent for all to see. I love my home and have referred Homoly to several friends and colleagues. They are simply the best home builders in Kansas City without exception.
Homoly Signature Homes built our home in 2003 and I would not hesitate to have them build another one for me. I have also referred them to others looking for a builder. The reasons that I highly endorse them is their ability to stand behind their product, on-time completion and customer service.
Often you hear about builders build it and walk away once the job is done. Not so with Homoly, the winter after we moved in was one of the coldest on record, causing one of the water pipes in the basement to burst. We called Andy and shortly afterwards, his team was fixing the pipes and filling in the whole area with foam installation. Additional, we have a closest over the garage that was always cold, Guy Homoly inspected the area, suggested and installed a wall heating unit at no cost to us, saying it should have been installed initially.
Secondly, was their ability to complete projects on time. Our home was done on the actual day it was proposed at closing.
Finally, at any time throughout the building process Andy Homoly was respectful of us, our time and took the time to answer any question we had, always returning our phone call or email in a timely manner.
The fact that this builder is not only still in business but growing also speaks for their quality of work.
We were focused on building the first privately funded LEED Platinum home in Kansas. Homoly was the obvious choice after interviewing several other builders. They were always accommodating to our many unusual requests, This will happen frequently with custom-designed homes, but with a LEED project such as this the level of complexity increased ten-fold. There was never any discord between us and Homoly and on those occasions when we had disagreements with sub-contractors, Homoly was always able to resolve them quickly and to our utmost satisfaction.
We have given many tours of our LEED Platinum home over the last 4 years (over 500 people) and we have always been delighted to promote Homoly as our builder.
I will highlight just a few of the features of our home that made it more challenging: 4 Kilowatts of photovoltaic panels, ground-source heat pump, all-glass solarium with 1-foot thick concrete floor to absorb heat, and Meteon exterior paneling (that must be carefully aligned before attachment) with a sub-surface rain screen.?
Homoly combines an extensive history of both residential and commercial projects that was immensely valuable to us for our project; with another builder we might never have reached our goal of LEED platinum.?
One final comment; I personally have zero tolerance in any aspect of my life for people who demonstrate less than a stellar level of integrity, honesty and compassion! ?I welcome comments and questions from anyone.
I loved working with Andy, Guy and team. They have the highest level of professionalism and integrity, while respecting the customer's vision. I would recommend to anyone who wants the best in custom work.
Homoly Construction is the premier environmentally focused builder in the region. We have been blessed to work as a vendor / subcontractor to Homoly Construction on several projects. On this LEED Certified home we provided the bamboo flooring. If there is an environmentally focus home being built in the Kansas City Metropolitan area Homoly Construction and Davidson Architecture seem to be building it. USGBC LEED for homes, HBA Green Home certified they build them all.

We had a very positive experience working with Homoly construction. The Project Manager for our project was very knowledgeable and experienced. Our dream project came through with flying colors. Given my experience I will use and recommend Homoly Construction to others.
We selected Homoly to build our house because we knew they built quality homes. They helped us through the design process all the way to handing us the keys to our great house. They gave us an accurate completion estimate and came in ahead of schedule. After seeing our old house settle and having to deal with the cracks in the walls it was great to know how they over engineer the footings and foundation. The house is rock solid. During the framing stage we had a friend of the family who had construction experience walk through and his comment was it was one of the best framing jobs he had ever seen. About this time we sat down with his estimator Chad. Chad was incredibly helpful providing us ideas and showing us how they worked within our budget. The site supervisor, Justin, was amazing. Proactive, professional and maintained a calm when trying to coordinate all the moving parts. When the plans from the architect fell short on design for the front porch he provided the answer that brought it all together. Homoly was there at each stage of construction holding our hand and giving us the help we needed to build hopefully our last home. One of the areas where we were pleasantly surprised was the follow up after we moved in. In previous homes we built, the builder promised to follow up and we never saw them. Although the issues were minor, the Homoly crew came out and addressed the items quickly and to our satisfaction. We plan on this house being our last home but if we were to build again it would be Homoly. Please reach out to me if you are considering building with Homoly. Be glad to review our experience.
