Why Cecil & Ray

Born and raised in Johnson County, Bryan Cecil and Ryan Ray have been building custom homes across Kansas and Missouri for over 25 years. The pair taps into a wealth of knowledge and experience gained from previous home construction work, as well as time spent working together under Ryan’s father, a longtime home builder himself. Together they bring a tried and trusted network of local artisans, and a caring, hands-on approach to every project.

"Our C&R Home was already constructed in Loch Lloyd. It was one of several models and builders we considered. In the final analysis, the construction, attention to detail, and unique qualities was heads and shoulders above the others. This is our 12th home. We knew what to look for.

Working with Bryan—long distance-- on a few minor modifications was smooth and without any issues. Even after we told them we had to move in two months earlier than we thought when our previous home sold.

The personal contact with the owner/build makes all the difference in the world. They’re on site and paying attention to each of their subs work. It’s personal to them. Unlike many builders who assign a superintendent to a custom home and you rarely see the owner/builder on site again.
If you want it done right and want to avoid needless anxiety and frustration go with C&R. They’re always going to be up-front with their clients. Were we to build another home, no need to compare builders. We’d go with Cecil & Ray, as would a few of our neighbors."
