Troy has more than 35 years of experience in commercial and residential construction. Following his passion for design and eager for a new challenge, he started Sanders Lifestyles in 2014 to offer superior, custom homes with quality craftsmanship to Wichita-area homeowners.
As a Designated Design-Build Professional through the Design-Build-Institute of America, Troy brings a unique vision to the design and construction of new homes, partnering with each client to build the home that best fits their needs, style, personality and budget. He is the only builder in the Wichita area to offer “Women-Centric” homes by Design Basics LLC, the largest home design firm in the United States.
As the owner of Sanders Lifestyles, Troy’s top priority is to create an exceptional experience for his clients through open communication, flexibility in design and an acute attention to detail during construction.
Prior to starting Sanders Lifestyles, Troy spent 20 years with Hutton Construction starting as a superintendent and working his way up to project executive, overseeing and developing high-end, large scale Design-Build projects, including hospitals, medical office buildings and senior living facilities. In 2014, he transitioned to the residential division of Hutton Development. Before joining Hutton in 1994, he owned a small construction company that provided framing and trim work for commercial and residential projects. Early in his career he also served in management positions at several local commercial construction companies.
In his spare time, you can find Troy at the lake, where he enjoys sky skiing and relaxing with friends. A true craftsman at heart, he also enjoys woodworking and projects that require him to re-imagine and re-engineer different objects to make them useful again.
Currently building in the Iron Gate development in Bel Aire, Kansas, as well as Customs in the Wichita area, Sanders Lifestyles is ready to make your next new home a reality.

As reported at the International Builders Show, “Women directly purchase or have controlling influence in the purchase of 91% of all new homes.” Sanders Lifestyles founder Troy Sanders concurs, saying “for the several years I’ve been building homes here, I’ve always known that women make most of the decisions.”
According to Sanders, “With our Woman-Centric approach, we are taking a different view of home building and presenting our homes in an entirely new way. Combining the practical and the aesthetic, these homes incorporate innovative amenities enhancing a home’s livability, focusing on: de-stressing; storage and organization; entertaining; and flexible living.” Sanders is proud that their woman-centric homes offer new solutions based upon homebuyer input. “Most of the suggestions we’ve received in the past few years has been from women. It’s women who have inspired us to develop new design solutions and to integrate new products in the home. That’s partly why we call these homes woman-centric. Not surprisingly, guys tell us they appreciate these features, too.”
In addition, Sanders Lifestyles has designed company systems, policies and procedures based upon women’s feedback to create remarkable customer experiences. Sanders said, “Questions can arise out of misunderstandings, so we’ve focused on clear, regular client communications. And we see our role somewhat differently than most builders, in that our job is to help our clients make wise, informed decisions regarding their new home investment—while being sensitive to their budget—helping them get the best new home value.”
What do women want in new homes? While no two women are the same, deluxe rear foyers, drop zones, pet centers, pocket offices and travel centers are highly desired features. USB charging ports, oversized and curbless walk-in showers, soundproofing solutions and maintenance-free products top the list of must-have included features. By listening better to really understand women’s needs and wants in the home, and offering unique amenities and solutions, Sanders Lifestyles hopes to stand apart from the competition.
The Wichita area’s first Woman-Centric home, Sanders Lifestyles’ “Hudson II”, will debut October 1st at the Fall Parade Of Homes located in the Iron Gate neighborhood. The 1,900 square foot ranch-style home features include 3-car garage, chef-inspired kitchen with butler’s pantry, large zero-threshold walk-in shower in the owner’s suite, all LED lighting, extra sound insulation in bedroom/bathroom common walls, relaxing outdoor living areas and a walkout basement.
