Prairie Construction, LLC is a family-owned-and-operated residential custom homebuilder in Wichita and surrounding areas including Newton, Hesston, Rose Hill, Derby, Maize, Valley Center, and Park City. Partners Dan Rexroat and Derek Claassen are dedicated to providing a home-building experience that is one of ease, fun and satisfaction.
They are passionate about building homes that will meet the homeowners’ needs for years to come, and they needed a new website that reflected their dedication to their customers, was easy to use, and highlighted their work.
For the foundation of the new website, we started with the WordPress framework. We love WordPress because it is open-source and flexible enough for us to customize it for each client’s specific needs, but it also has a back-end user interface that is intuitive enough for our clients to be able to log in and manage their content without any prior programming or HTML knowledge.
For the design, we made their homes the centerpiece – large photos of their homes are featured throughout the pages. The idea was that the homes were the best example of the quality of their work. To further highlight some of their new homes, we implemented a custom virtual home tours plugin into their website. Visitors can browse several homes and view photos of both the inside and outside easily. Since the feature is integrated with WordPress, it is easy for Prairie Construction to log in and manage or add new home tours as well.
Prairie Construction’s new website also features a custom testimonial plugin that makes it easy for them to manage testimonials and display them on their website. Customers can submit feedback directly through the website – once it has been reviewed and approved, it will show at the top of their testimonials page. No extra data entry or HTML required!
There is also a spot on the homepage that will display a random testimonial each time the page is loaded. This helps keep the content on the homepage fresh even when there aren’t many changes to make.
