KC MADE Winners Build Skills for Future Careers Metro-area high school students competed in the second annual KC Manufacturing and Design Expo (KC MADE) at the 2019 Kansas City Home and Lifestyle Show on March 22-24 at Bartle Hall. The contest is a component of the KCHBA’s workforce development initiative, which was launched to help address skilled labor shortages within the homebuilding industry. KC MADE showcases the talents of local students through a variety of carpentry, woodworking and mixed wood/metalwork projects. It also gives students an opportunity to push themselves beyond traditional shop class projects while offering practical vocational experience. Brody Johnston, a junior at Shawnee Mission West High School, took top honors at the competition for a wood dresser he crafted based on a Pinterest post. “This is kind of my passion,” Johnston said. “Ever since I’ve been young, I loved doing things with my hands. It started with Legos, and eventually I’m hoping to turn this into a construction career.” A panel of judges determined KC MADE winners based on project quality, skill knowledge and professionalism. Program grants were awarded to the schools of the first, second, and third place overall winners in the amounts of $1,000, $750, and $500. Students with winning projects were rewarded for their efforts with a variety of Makita tools. Continued on page 6

Highlights of Home Show: Celebrity Announcement, Smart Home and a $25,000 Donation The Greater Kansas City Home and Lifestyle Show presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (HBA) on March 22-24 offered Kansas Citians everything they need to create happy, healthy and hip spaces wherever they live. “Our theme this year was #HowYouHome, and we wanted to offer design and home improvement tips to people in whatever place they call home. That may be an apartment, townhome, loft or house,” said 2019 KC Home Show Chair Matt Ernst of Ernst Brothers Construction. “Decorating styles, technological innovations that you saw displayed in our Smart Home, and home design trends are always changing, but home—and a sense of home—remains our anchor.” For 71 years, the Home Builders Association’s Home & Lifestyle Show has offered Kansas City the most current and wide-ranging displays of home improvement, and 2019 was no exception. Presented by Makita, the show featured guest appearances from entrepreneur and TV personality Bethenny Frankel, as well as Tamara Day, star of DIY Network’s Bargain Mansions. On the Main Stage, Day announced some breaking news — her Bargain Mansions show is moving to HGTV as of April 15. An interactive smart home courtesy of Patriot Homes took center stage at this year’s show. The home featured the latest in technological innovations, including a Samsung smart refrigerator with touchscreen door, voice-activated Kohler smart mirror and Moen shower head and an automated lawn mower by Gobomow. The Smart Home was outfitted by Ferguson/Factory Direct and demonstrated just how simple life can be with a few gadgets and a reliable Wi-Fi network!

attendees to walk through. To support VCP, HBA members and Bonner Springs High School built playhouses that were auctioned off to the highest bidder during the show. Additionally, $1 of every ticket sold online benefited VCP. In total, the HBA donated $25,000 to VCP. The 2019 show featured a Backyard Oasis sponsored by Stonebridge Outdoor, Price Chopper Cooking Stage featuring Instagram’s #detoxinista and other local restaurant chefs, an interactive play area sponsored by Backyard Specialists, Pub in the Park with TVs airing March Madness action, and dozens of vendors.

The Home & Lifestyle Show partnered with Veterans Community Project (VCP) this year. Co-founder Brandonn Mixon spoke about how VCP got started and its plans to help homeless veterans moving forward. VCP also brought one of its tiny homes for show



MO North Area Council Features New Leader, Build-PAC “I can think of no better organization to work for than one that literally puts roofs over people’s heads,” said new Executive Vice President Will Ruder to attendees at the Missouri North Area Council on March 27. Ruder introduced himself to the group and provided insight into his background and his goals for leading the organization into the future. “I plan to create, develop and expand existing and non-existing relationships to position the organization exactly where it needs to be,” said Ruder. Ruder noted that there is no better place to live and raise a family than Kansas City and he looks forward to meeting every member of the association in the coming months. Also speaking at the area council was Gary Kerns of Gary Kerns Homebuilders. He and Ruder explained how NAHB’s BUILD-PAC works and why it is important to support it. BUILD-PAC helps elect pro-housing, pro-business candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, explained Kerns. “NAHB members will save about $5,500 per housing start in 2019 due to NAHB’s advocacy efforts in 2018 and other member benefits.” “Investing in BUILD-PAC is one of the best ways to be engaged and shape political outcomes,” Kerns continued. “In the 20172018 cycle, BUILD-PAC raised more than $3.1 million to support candidates in the election. BUILD-PAC disbursed more than $2.9 million and supported 370 candidates – 85 percent of whom won on Nov. 6.” BUILD-PAC scores every Member of Congress on key factors including a Member’s key floor votes, key leadership positions, key committee assignments and behind-the-scenes actions on behalf of the industry. The score translates into a letter grade: A, B, C, D or F. NAHB’s advocacy efforts helped push congressional leaders to negotiate a new Softwood Lumber Agreement with Canada. It also stopped the implementation of the 2015 Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule during the Obama Administration and then worked with the Trump Administration to draft the new definition. “BUILD-PAC is the breath that allows us to be the voice of the housing industry,” said Ruder.


HBA Building Transformation The HBA staff has learned that remodeling is noisy! All the finishes have been removed from the second level of the building and from the entryway at the rear entrance up through the stairway. Studs are now in place for new walls and soon the office doors will be installed. Three $10,000 donations are from Harold Phelps, Jeff Ashner and Shawn Woods. With these donations, they will get naming rights for rooms in the newly renovated offices. This project has received support from: Gold Level

In addition to monetary donations, the HBA has received generous contributions of labor and/or materials from: Kenny’s Tile, Henges Insulation, Shamrock Cabinet, and Trendstone. Contributions to the remodeling project are still welcome. The funds the HBA saves on this large project will free up money to be used for Workforce Development and other vital functions of the association.

HBA Welcomes William Ruder The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City is pleased to announce the selection of William Ruder as its new executive vice president. Ruder’s first day at the HBA was March 11. Ruder comes to the HBA from U.S. Senator Jerry Moran’s office (R-Kan.) in Washington, D.C., where he served as legislative director.

First Source for Quality, Value, Service, and a Trusted Business Partner

Ruder will lead the HBA’s staff and be responsible for managing the ongoing implementation and successful completion of the association’s strategic goals. He will represent the association at the local and national level. “I am thrilled to join an industry so committed to making the Kansas City area such a special place to live and grow,” said Ruder. “To lead a strong and well-respected organization is an honor and I look forward to serving in this strategic role as the home-building industry continues to adapt and evolve to meet the housing needs of the entire region.”

HBA Raises $25,000 for Veterans Community Project The HBA is proud to have partnered with the Veterans Community Project (VCP) for its annual Home & Lifestyle Show, which was held March 22-24 at Bartle Hall. VCP is on a mission to eliminate Veteran homelessness by providing transitional-housing and enabling access to exceptional 360-degree service solutions. “We thought this was going to be a hobby,” said VCP co-founder Brandonn Mixon on stage during the show. “We didn’t know it was going to become a full-time job. But the community really stepped up and said ‘we’ve got your guys’ back.’” The HBA is pleased to share that it raised $25,000 for VCP during the Home and Lifestyle Show. During the show, HBA members and Bonner Springs High School built playhouses and hosted a Parade of Playhouses. The playhouses were featured in Bartle Hall during the show and attendees could purchase the playhouses via an online auction throughout the weekend. Additionally, $1 from every Home and Lifestyle Show ticket sold online was donated to VCP. The HBA has a history of supporting local organizations. In 2018, HBA members donated more than $100,000 to Kansas City charities including Harvesters, Ronald McDonald House, Builders Development Corporation and Rebuilding Together.


Thank you to Masonite for sponsoring the Parade of Playhouses. We’d also like to thank Owen Lumber, McCray Lumber and Christensen Lumber for delivering the playhouses to the winning bidders.

Sending Out An SOS: Harvesters Needs Help! The Spring Parade is partnering with Harvesters again this year. Harvesters provides important food services all year round, but right now is especially critical. Flood victims need their services, as well as children getting ready for summer break. Many local charities, including Veterans Community Project, also use Harvesters. Donations are necessary to keep this wonderful local organization up and running! Visit to donate. Builders: The deadline to display a Hammer Out Hunger logo has passed, but your generosity is always appreciated.

What Can the Parade App Do For You? The Missouri South Area Council will be held at Unity Village (1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, MO 64065) on April 24 from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The Parade of Homes mobile app creator, Chris Schlemmer, will walk us through the benefits of the app to builders and realtors.

Both Koehn and Kile shared useful information and ways to prevent theft on jobsites: • According to Koehn, having high quality cameras is critical. If a video or picture is unclear and fuzzy to you, it will also be useless to the police.

Multiple Warranty Options

• Even if stolen equipment is found, police need to be able to identify it as yours to return it. Always take pictures of serial numbers and/or permanently mark all equipment and tools. According to Kile, approximately 50 percent of stolen equipment is found, but only about 20 percent will be returned to the owner. • High quality, durable security equipment is worth the investment. Consider the cost of what you are protecting on a regular basis versus the cost of your security equipment. • It is important to have a security plan in place. Employees should know what they are responsible for and what should be taken home at night. • Deliveries should be on a schedule and made “as needed.” Do not store supplies in a garage. • According to Kile, 60 percent of sites hit during a contract
