Our Approach To Building Your Dream

At Forner LaVoy custom home builders Kansas City, when it comes to designing & building a custom home the process can be very complicated. There are many moving parts to manage – numerous vendors, suppliers & tradesmen, material acquisitions, pricing of bids, financial & banking relationships, building codes & inspections, and project schedules. In addition to that, it requires years of experience in custom home building and being able to manage and navigate this labyrinth to successfully design and build a custom home. However, sequencing the stages of construction is not enough. Furthermore, a comprehensive project & construction management methodology must be employed and is what separates a true custom home builder from a here-today-gone-tomorrow contractor. While many contractors hope for a successful outcome for you, we know that hope is not a plan.

What Makes Us Different:

At Forner – LaVoy custom home builders Kansas City, we have combined Rick Forner’s home building & construction expertise and James La Voy’s client service & program management expertise to develop a methodology we call “Building Dreams” — a state-of-the-art, customer-centric and quality-minded approach to constructing the home that delivers a truly exceptional building experience for you. “Building Dreams” was not developed based on hope but instead through thoughtful deliberation aimed to ensure your success. Learn more below about how we plan for your success rather than hope for it.

Understand How ‘Building Dreams’ Succeeds

At Forner LaVoy custom home builders Kansas City, when building a custom home, delivering the quality and customer experience you deserve and expect requires much more than simply overseeing the stages of construction. This requires coordination of the varied facets of a building project in a fashion that ensures success — success defined as an on-time and on-budget project combined with an experience that you enjoyed. Finally, most custom home builders aren’t able to grasp the full process like the Forner LaVoy team is able to. We know that is the outcome you deserve and therefore, the outcome we strive to achieve with every homeowner in our custom home building process. 

We developed a series of management disciplines to achieve that outcome and integrated them into our ‘Building Dreams’ methodology — disciplines that envelop and support the traditional steps to constructing your dream home. And disciplines rooted in structure, communication, technology, planning, creativity and information sharing. Learn more below. For the best custom home builders Kansas City, you can trust Forner LaVoy.
