Owning a custom home certainly does have its benefits. You get to build a home based on the influence of your choices. You have the freedom to select all that you want in your home, from appliances to wall and floor coverings to cabinetry and all the amenities. When you have a custom home built for you, it is built around your needs, wants and lifestyle. You can enjoy a floorplan that can be fully maximized for functionality and the way you intend to live in and use your home. In short, a custom-built home is a strong reflection of who you are. It is your dream home come to life.

If you are in the market for a custom home, you don’t have to look far to find a top custom home builder in the Kansas City area.

This team insists each and every one of its homes meet the most rigorous of standards without sacrificing an ounce of creativity, detail, and quality. 

Located in Liberty, Missouri, and voted best in the Northland, designs from Olympus Custom Homes can be found all over the metro – from Spring Hill to Smithville – at multiple price points, from fabulous starter homes around $300,000 to the most luxurious of residences in the $1 million + category. No matter your lifestyle or budget, Olympus Custom Homes can create your dream home that will withstand the test of time, ensuring perfection at every turn and through every detail. 



“We have a vision for unique things,” expressed Hollowell, in reference to the innovative and inspiring elements of design incorporated into their homes. A significant part of the success of this company can easily be attributed to the superior designs for which they are known, all of which are integrated with cutting edge products and highly trained and skilled craftsmen.

One of the newer designs by Olympus is the breathtaking Bobbi Jo, a reverse story-and-a-half home that can be fully customized to meet your desires, whether you want a side entry or front entry garage or even an elevator.  Unique to this design is its expansive floorplan, created as a broader footprint, allowing for a more spacious environment.

“I enjoy the variety of projects that lend themselves towards custom plans and working with many different customers from all over the area,” expressed Hollowell.



Olympus Custom Homes never stops positioning itself for success in future endeavors, as the team’s creative wheels are constantly spinning. With its outstanding team of interior designers, which includes Alexa Hollowell, Lina Schirber and Kellie Crow, each home is given the utmost attention in style and design throughout all of its appointments. Hollowell enjoys attending to all of the unique and insightful touches and elements his homes provide. He and his craftsmen take the time and dedication to make the interesting and even unexpected happen.

“We really take pride in our quality and try to deliver a product that not only is something we are proud of but that the buyer is proud of,” reflected Hollowell.



No matter what you may envision for your custom home, Olympus Custom Homes will work with you from scratch to concept on your own design vision, taking it from the beginning to completion, or you can simply modify one of their own plans.

“We are always working on new designs and have recently released another reverse story-and-a-half floor plan called The Tallgrass,” noted Hollowell, who referenced its elegant round staircase as one of its focal points. “We do a lot of unique work with staircases.”



And the client testimonials really say it all, from “this company is head and shoulders above the rest” to “we’ve received so many great compliments on the detailing and craftsmanship of our home. Thanks again for building the perfect home for us.”

Among the many neighborhoods around the metro area in which Hollowell and McDonald are building include Village on Victory in Spring Hill; Kenneth Estates in Shawnee; Cadence in the Northland; Homestead and Copperleaf in Liberty; Carriage Hills Estates and Preserve in Gladstone; and Dovecot, Timber Creek in Kearney and Hook Farms in Lee’s Summit.
