If it’s time to build that quality new custom home about which you have been dreaming, then it is time to call Koehler Building Co., Inc. to put your dream into motion. Known for quality construction and outstanding architectural design, Koehler Building Co. puts the “wow” factor into each and every design and detail. More than just homes, Koehler Building Co. creates works of art that will leave you speechless with their impeccable design and details but will still remain comfortable enough to easily call home.
Owner Brian Koehler grew up in the home building business, and as a result he has created a highly diversified portfolio of ideas and inspirations, having built more than 1,000 homes in his career. The son of a home builder, Koehler cut his teeth in the industry and was on his first job site by the age of 14. From a young age, he began to acquire all of the tools of the trade in terms of knowledge and experience, assuming a hands-on approach with every project in which he was involved, a method he still applies today.
Working alongside Brian is his wife, Kim, and their son Justin, who is positioning himself to one day continue the Koehler legacy when Brian decides it is time to retire. However, with so much inspiration and so many ideas that continually flow through Brian’s creative thought process, he still has much exciting work to do and is never at a loss for extraordinary new ideas, as evidenced by a recent floorplan that is turning heads: the Entertainer.
With a current model of this design located in the luxurious Hills of Leawood, this reverse floor plan has pulled out all the stops. It is a dream home come to life, a home for which its name is definitely meant.
“This is a place for entertaining,” emphasized Kim, who pointed out one of its many exciting features – the lanai. With its many appointments and layers of unique materials, this is the apparent key to an endless summer. Between the furniture settings, greenery, bar area and televisions, Koehler has designed this lanai to maximize its potential.
“On one end there is a sitting area, a television and a fireplace,” noted Kim. “On the other end is a firepit, a bar and three large screen TVs.”
Known for his innovative design ideas, Koehler employs a decidedly artistic edge to each of his creations. Drawing on influences from other parts of the country, Koehler routinely brings new ideas to the Midwest, initiating trends and sparking enthusiasm in his clients, leaving a lasting footprint on the path of what homeowners now demand in terms of style and comfort when it comes to the layout and artistic expression of their homes.
The interior of the home has four bedrooms, an office/flex room and an artistically designed and glass-enclosed wine storage area that will bring out the connoisseur in most anyone. Three of the bedrooms are downstairs while the master suite and office, located just behind the kitchen, are upstairs.
“The oversized kitchen opens into the great room and in the eating area is a built-in buffet,” said Kim, who likens the design of this home to somewhat of a traditional style with layered modern influences.
When you build a home with the award-winning Koehler Building Company, you are guaranteed an experience like no other.
“Brian is very hands on,” said Kim. “He meets with each client and talks with them through the whole process, checking on the build jobs every week and being available for them at all times even though there is a superintendent on site.”
Although Brian works with a skilled decorator, Laura Lovett, who gives every home a special touch, Kim indicated Brian does have a keen eye himself for design, and his touch is frequently seen throughout the homes he builds, as seen in all of the details and layers of style throughout this home.
Other communities in which Koehler currently builds include Lloch Lloyd, Glen Eagles, the Villas of Ironwoods, the Villas of Avalon, WatersEdge, Lake Winnebago, and Cedar Creek.
Every Koehler home comes with a full guarantee of satisfaction. Koehler and his team listen to what homeowners want and then incorporate those ideas into the homebuilding process, complementing them with their expertise and talent. If clients have a vision, Koehler can beautifully and artistically bring that vision to life. A Koehler home is known for quality, craftsmanship, and value, but also becomes a place where a lifetime of memories are made to create its true foundation. When you build a Koehler home, you build a legacy to last a lifetime.
