Welcome to Dusty Rhodes Homebuilders, the heart of craftsman Kansas homebuilding. We're more than just custom home builders; we're storytellers, crafting homes that echo with the laughter of families, the hum of community, and the timeless rhythm of the heartland.

History of Heartfelt Craftsmanship

Our journey began in 1966 when our founder and namesake, Dusty Rhodes, with a hammer in hand and a dream in his heart, laid the foundation for what would become a family-owned business deeply rooted in the values of the Midwest. Born and raised in Overland Park, Kansas, Dusty embodied the spirit of the heartland – hardworking, genuine, and focused on community.

Dusty Rhodes Homebuilders has never been about just constructing houses; it has always been about creating homes that embody the friendliness of Midwestern neighbors and the comfort of Sunday dinners. As a family, we’ve set out on a mission: to not only build houses, but homes where families could grow, memories could flourish, and the essence of the people of Kansas can thrive.

Our Mission

At Dusty Rhodes Homebuilders, we're more than builders; we're part of the fabric of this community. We believe in the power of a handshake, a promise kept, and a porch light that’s always on. Our mission is to create homes that stand as a testament to Midwestern resilience, where the values of hard work, honesty, and integrity are not just spoken but woven into the very foundation of every home we build.
