A Reputation for Integrity, Superior Planning and Quality Construction
Designing and building custom homes in the Kansas City metro area since 2004, Gerry Starr of Starr Homes has utilized superior architecture and quality construction/materials to develop a reputation for integrity and money-saving building techniques.
“Designing a home that ‘just feels right’ every time you walk into a space requires merging function, art-form, and engineering into a practical plan. My strength is the ability to bring that vision together; pulling from my design and engineering background into a cohesive set of plans,” said Gerry, who has two engineering degrees from the University of Missouri. Gerry brings unique ideas into every design meeting, creating an environment filled with creativity where clients can build a home customized for their needs and wants.
“I love working with clients and our architects through the custom design process,” Gerry adds. “We believe our process and people are the best in the Kansas City metro area.
Starting with a wish list, a piece of land, and usually some inspirational photos from our clients, we begin to forge the design that meets their needs. Life is short, you should live it the way you want to and in the spaces that give you the most joy out of them.”
Starr Homes ensures that each home not only looks and feels great, but also offers money-saving energy efficient techniques. Desiring to create a home that will last longer and use less energy, Gerry Starr takes traditional home construction many steps further. With a superior insulation package and high-quality construction and materials, each Starr home will have a quieter and more consistent interior environment.
During the Starr Homes building process, the needs and wants of the client are very carefully considered. Not every client can visualize how a home will look when it is completed, so great care is taken to create a space that is unique and customized for each client. Starr Homes takes pride in helping clients achieve all of the functionality, character, and beauty they are seeking in their home –allowing the design to have a great flow and feel.
From architecture that takes advantage of the land and views, creating internal living spaces that feel and function great, and installing engineering and mechanical systems that make the house live better and healthier, to the details on final finishes such as cabinets/trim/appliances, Starr Homes believes an Artisan home is a home that brings the best quality, design, and value forward.
