About

We are AWARD-WINNING home builders.
Since 1989, we've been providing the Kansas City metro area with the finest homes at a REASONABLE VALUE.

History

Founded in 1989, SAB Homes has proudly served the greater Kansas City area with some of the finest homes at a reasonable value. One of our central goals is to provide you, the home owner, a positive home building experience.

Since 1989, SAB Construction has provided single-family and multi-family homes to homebuyers in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Owner Scott Bamesberger’s extensive construction experience, keen sense of value, design and quality, as well as a strict organizational code, have made it possible for SAB Construction to focus on the positive aspects of the home building process for its customers.

As a design/build construction company, SAB Construction has more flexibility in home design and building style than ordinary homebuilders. Each SAB construction project schedule is updated daily by our field superintendents in order to give our homebuyers and subcontractors the absolute latest information on the progress of every home. This strict approach to monitoring construction progress has resulted in fewer delays and errors and has created a positive overall experience for all involved. When a home is complete, we have an in-house service coordinator to answer your questions and assist with call backs. Within the past few years, SAB Construction has begun to build in the Johnson County area, while continuing to maintain and expand in communities located in Lee’s Summit, Raymore and Kansas City North and metropolitan areas. At SAB, we continue to search for quality communities in which to build our award-winning products and we are constantly working to improve value without reducing the quality of our product. To achieve our goals, we take PRIDE in the following core values:

Professionalism

We conduct ourselves in a professional manner. We hire those who are masters in their craft and take pride in their work.

Reliability

When you choose to build your home with SAB Homes, know that we stand behind our word and our promises. We are there for our homeowners before, during and after the closing.

Integrity

At SAB Homes, integrity means doing the right thing even when you don’t have to, without the expectation of personal gain or recognition. Do what is right – not what is easy.

Distinction

Each home we build is special and worthy of distinction. We don’t cut corners and it shows in our distinctive designs and finishes, as well as overall quality.

Excellence & Ethics (to ensure elated homeowners)

SAB homes constantly strives for excellence. Our goal is always 100% satisfaction. We work hard to achieve great relationships with our subcontractors and homeowners, a result of high ethics.

Words to Live by

It’s easy to see why Scott Bamesberger’s favorite quote is: “Quality is never an accident… it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”

I take pride in all of my work and it is important for me to do my best on every warranty appointment. I ensure every homeowner is pleased before I end my day. Additionally, before any house closings, I make sure to walk through the whole house and look for any kind of issues that need repaired before closing date.

What do you like the most about building new homes?: I enjoy seeing the houses being built from the start to finish. It is amazing to me how each house is built, starting with the foundation being poured, to the final home inspection before the homeowner takes possession. It is a fun process to see regularly. Name something you wish buyers knew about home building: If I could give advice for buyers it is  if they ever do paint touch up themselves, the main walls are in a flat paint finish and bathroom walls are painted with an eggshell finish.

Katie Reece
Senior Interior Designer
What I do: I work SAB customers to pick out all the selections and finishes for their new home. I communicate with multiple vendors in order to get the look that our customers are wanting. When drawings are needed to communicate ideas to our installers, I provide those as well. When I’m not working with our customers, I order products that go into our homes, and design our spec and model homes. During the spring and fall parades I decorate and furnish our models and do the fun “pretty” stuff to make our homes sparkle! Background: I knew I wanted to be an interior designer from the day I was born...pretty much. When I was a kid I would ask for new paint to repaint my bedroom, new bedding for Christmas, and subscribed to Architectural Digest by the time I was in Junior High. I constantly was re-drawing plans for my parents house and giving advice to others. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Design and a Masters in Art Education from the University of Central Missouri. I started out designing custom furniture and it turned into one residential project after another, which led me to SAB. What do you like the most about building new homes? The entire process of designing a home. I love being able to take what is in my mind, put it on paper, and see it come to life. What is your favorite SAB Homes floor plan and why? The Manitoba. I could see myself entertaining lots of people in the big open kitchen and great room area. What do you wish buyers knew about home building? When a buyer finds something they love, they should stick with it. Between Pinterest and Houzz these days, it’s easy to be led astray with numerous ideas...and let’s be honest...at the end of the day we can’t have everything. It has to make sense. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life? Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock. They both are confident, strong women, who could take on the world :) What do you do when you are not working? I love to travel, work on my own home, listen to live music, go to Royals games, shopping, and spending time with friends and family.

Director of Operations
​What I do: I oversee field operations by working with construction superintendents to achieve a quality-built home done on time, while using safe work practices.  When superintendents are on vacation or sick I cover their jobs.  I walk each of our homes frequently to help achieve our goals of quality, efficiency, and safety.  I work with construction trades to build a strong team of subcontractors to work on our homes.  Along with this I work with them to follow construction best practices and safety guidelines.  I meet with homeowner at times when we have special projects, and field design or problem solving projects.

Graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management from Brigham Young University – Idaho.  I worked in different construction trades throughout school and have continued with home building until the present day. What do you like the most about building new homes? The thing I like the most about building a new home is being able to start with a design beginning with the structural stage and carry it through until finished product.  It is a very exciting process to see how each stage, even though it may be simple on its own, can creates a masterpiece when done right and with the proper vision of quality and craftsmanship. ​What do you do when you are not working? I spend most of my free time with my kids, either running them around to practice or going to games.  We are involved in soccer, basketball, scouts, dance.  We are also very active in serving in our Church.  Over the years my wife and I have served in many different callings which have been a huge blessing in our lives.  We love serving other and teaching our kids the importance of service.  When I have a chance to spend personal time I like to work out, make custom knives, work on carpentry and painting hobbies around the house, play basketball, go to the shooting range, and on occasion lounge in my basement and watch movies in our theatre room.  I love sports, camping, fishing, and learning about survival. Do you love or hate roller coasters? I love roller coasters - just don’t put me on the tea cups. What is your proudest accomplishment? My proudest accomplishment is winning over my wife and having a beautiful family.
