BUILDING BEAUTIFUL HOMES IN CENTRAL IOWA SINCE 1977
WHY CHOOSE MAPES CONSTRUCTION?

With more than 25 years’ experience, Mapes Construction owner, Kenny Loder, has a passion for creating your ideal home.  He personally custom designs each home to ensure it fits your lifestyle. When you meet with Kenny, you will be working with a dependable, long-term partner throughout the building process.

QUALIFIED AND CONFIDENT
We know how to craft a top-quality, ultimately comfortable, and beautifully designed home. From the foundation to the roof and every detail between, we consistently work with a trusted team of expert craftspeople to achieve the perfect home for you.
QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY
We aren’t out to build the most homes. Instead, we focus on a handful of houses every year, allowing us to fully custom design and skillfully construct the best home to meet your needs, your dreams and your budget.
CUSTOM-CRAFTED
Kenny has a gift for listening and understanding what you really want in your new home. He draws up plans himself to meet your needs—right down to knowing where all your furnishings fit. You’ll have a place for everything and peace of mind.
CHARACTER-DRIVEN
As a native Iowan committed to enriching local communities throughout the Midwest, Kenny isn’t just your designer-builder—he’s your good neighbor who works hard to maintain that relationship. Once you have your new home’s keys in hand, Kenny remains available as a guarantee of satisfaction.
PERSONAL ATTENTION
Once you’re signed on the dotted line, you’ll see us on-site daily throughout the building or remodeling process. We’re there to personally ensure that every system, feature, finish and other details of your home meets or exceeds your expectations and remains on budget.
PRIZED RESALES
Your home wears our reputation for quality for decades to come. When one of our homes—even those constructed more than 20 years ago—comes back on the market, real estate agents make a point of mentioning, “It’s a Mapes Construction home.”

Kenny Loder’s roots run deep as a life-long Iowan who embraces the American ideal—working hard and learning the new home building and remodeling business from the bottom up. In fact, he started as a young man with Mapes Construction in 1991, doing site cleanup for then-owner Jim Mapes, who would eventually become his father-in-law, gradually learning hands-on construction from the best. After college, he purchased the company with his wife, Michelle. Together, they invest their hearts and hands in making a better Iowa, where they also raise two children and cheer them on at school events. When Kenny isn’t working hard onsite building or remodeling your new home, you might spot him around town swimming, cycling or running, as he prepares for his next triathlon. He may not place first in that event, but he’s determined to win your confidence and trust as he designs and builds the ideal home for you.

We’ve never built the same house twice. That means, your new home is a reflection of you,
and only you.
