custom home builders in Kansas City

Our Mission

We provide the best customer service in the business.  Tallgrass Building Company takes the worry and stress out of building a home.  We work hand-in-hand with our subcontractors and designers from start to finish to provide a long-lasting, quality home.  Our homes are built to last.  We are highly involved with each step of the building process to insure the final product meets our high standards and quality inspections.

We are never satisfied until our homeowner LOVES everything about their new home.

Our Approach

Tallgrass Building Company was started and developed on the foundation of four core values:  Honesty, Commitment to our client,  Deliver on our promises and Integrity.  We are committed to helping you make the best choices to fit your needs and wants for your new home.

We start with the planning stage.  We sit down to discuss and view options and floor plans with you. The planning stage is one of the most important steps in building your new home. We discuss the size, budget, options and location for your new home. Tallgrass Building Company is committed to helping you find exactly what you want while working with you to stay within budget.

Once we finalize the plan, Tallgrass Building Company gets everything started by taking care of the details. We feel it is important to have open communication with you during each step of the building process.  We provide regular updates during the course of each step. We don't anticipate problems, but should they arise, we handle all the issues or complaints.  Building with us is stress free.  If you decide you need to change something along the way, we will make it happen.

We have our own families, so we know how important living in a high quality, safe home is for our clients.  We do several code and quality inspections during the course of the building process.  All of our homes have storm shelters or safe rooms included in the plan. Your family will be safe in the home we build for you.

Why We Build
