Ann Arkebauer

Ann is a Kansas City area interior designer and artist. Ann moved to Leawood Kansas from Salina Kansas in 2013. For over 30 years, Ann has worked with families, individuals and commercial establishments to elevate their spaces, and perhaps take a little design risk along the way. Whether the project calls for modern edginess, classic timelessness or a personal style not formally identified, Ann can help you create the look you want-or maybe the look you didn’t even know you wanted.

Working for Casa Bella Construction has allowed Ann to work directly with clients as well as designing details and selections for the company’s model homes. It is her firm belief, that whether her relationships with her clients last a few hours or develop into long term friendships, she insists in honesty, trust, and making things as easy as possible for her clients during their design journey.

Ben Cox

Ben has over a decade of experience throughout many facets of the construction industry. He has experience as a commercial contractor, subcontractor (in several different trades) and residential builder. After graduating from Kansas State University with a degree in Construction Science and Management, he trained at one of the largest commercial general contractors in the nation for six years. After eight years in the commercial industry, Ben decided to transition to his passion of residential construction. In 2009, he began working as the Estimator for a well-known KC custom home builder, who had an emphasis on sustainable construction. By broadening his horizons, Ben was able to start his own consulting firm, and for two years established himself as a “go to” estimating expert in the subcontractor and general contractor community. In September, 2012, Ben joined Casa Bella Construction as Estimator. Ben now is Estimator for both Casa Bella Construction and Encore Building Company. His favorite part of the job is: “I thoroughly enjoy being in constant communication with our homeowners and helping to ensure their homebuilding experience is enjoyable and as hassle-free as I can make it.”
