“Some kids want to be a cop, some want to be athletes, but I knew I wanted to build homes..”

With precise attention to detail and a focus on customer service, the team at Lane Myers Construction has been building extraordinary homes in Utah for more than three decades. Having begun his career in the home building industry at just 14 years old, founder and owner Lane Myers brings an expertise that can only be achieved through hard-earned experience.
“Some kids want to be a cop, some want to be athletes, but I knew I wanted to build homes,” says Lane. “I don’t know where that idea came from, but it’s always been my passion and I have been lucky enough to be able to live my passion.”
With that passion comes an equal commitment to integrity and quality craftsmanship. These guiding principles shape every project and every relationship Lane undertakes. A self-described open book, Lane believes his full-disclosure approach alleviates problems and anxiety for his clients. He even keeps his clients informed of their costs on a monthly basis, building trust and eliminating uncertainty.
Coupled with that honesty comes the highest level of craftmanship. Lane Myers Construction is known for uncompromising quality in all aspects of their work, whether materials, labor, or customer service. “We don’t cut corners,” says Lane. “We only do things the very best way. We operate with the attitude that if a few nails are good—more are better. And I believe our work is only as good as our team, and ours is the very best.”
With a roster of subcontractors who have been working with the company for more than 20 years and a full-time team of 10 dedicated professionals, Lane Myers Construction delivers consistently flawless work. They even run an in-house paint company that was established 15 years ago when Lane recognized the opportunity to ensure that every one of his projects receives a precision paint job.
From quarried rock to cedar elements and reclaimed wood, the team specializes in large custom homes, viewing each build as a decidedly unique project. With an eye on the cutting edge of design trends and the latest products, Lane strives to not only create beautiful, state-of-the-art homes that will wow today, but homes that will remain exceptional for generations.
“I want to build ‘legacy homes’ that will be handed down through families,” says Lane. “Back in the early 1900s, builders were true craftsmen and cared about their trade. They cared and as a result, it lasted. We take great pride in each home we create, and we are always building with that mindset. I want to build homes that will endure. Homes that people can enjoy and make memories in for many, many years.”
“We become friends with our clients, and that is better than any crazy marketing campaigns. We just take care of people and they come back, and they recommend us to their friends and family. To me it’s simple.”

With a strong word of mouth reputation for constructing stunning luxury homes, Lane and his team complete between 6 to 12 builds each year, many of which are for returning clients. “To me, reputation is everything,” says Lane. “Just this year, we are working with three different clients on their third homes with us. We become friends with our clients, and that is better than any crazy marketing campaigns. We just take care of people and they come back, and they recommend us to their friends and family. To me it’s simple.” Positive word of mouth, genuine compliments, and honest reviews are crucial to keeping a steady clientele for Lane Myers Construction. Such feedback pulls traffic to their website where an outstanding portfolio is showcased depicting the desirable, limitless, and quality homes they build.
Lane recently finished a stunning lodge-style home in a remote setting for one of those repeat clients. Stretching the team’s capabilities and establishing the home’s permanence, the house was carved into the side of a mountain, with 30-foot-tall exterior walls, sitting above a reservoir. Due to its out-of-the-way location, the project required remarkable efforts in labor and attention. Significant planning became critical—materials, logistics, and timing needed to be carefully accounted for. The entire home was built off of generator-supplied power and a roadway was installed just to reach the site.
At 10,000 square feet of interior space and 3,000 square feet of exterior living, it was the most remote project Lane Myers Construction had ever undertaken to date. With an incredible floating paver deck, a luxury outdoor kitchen, and views too beautiful to describe, the home stands as a tribute to its Utah landscape. Its aesthetic appeal is equally matched by the integrity of its construction. A metal roof, high-end windows, and superior insulation guarantee its longevity.
Another recently completed project led the team in a more stylistically modern direction. Located in the resort-like community of Victory Ranch, the home includes 7,000 finished square feet inside and was featured in the Park City Parade of Homes. The 2,200 square feet of outdoor space provides beautiful views and highlights six fire elements, several water features, and a bed swing, adding to the ultimate resort feeling of the property. Made to enjoy in all four seasons of the year, with features such as a steam room, radiant heat, and forced air, the home allows the residents to truly take advantage of all the benefits of the Utah lifestyle.
The client, a local realtor and builder himself, came to Lane after being impressed by the workmanship of a home he had recently sold, which was one of Lane’s custom builds. His decision was further influenced by the service he saw Lane provide after the sale to his clients. Witnessing this level of quality and care, he knew Lane was the right choice for his Victory Ranch project. As a result of their collaboration in Victory Ranch, Lane is now building a home for this client’s sister.
“We have built more than 50 homes for industry colleagues. It is always very flattering to have another builder, realtor, developer, or people in the know wanting us to build their homes,” says Lane. “It’s the ultimate compliment.”

Family is also central to Lane’s own business, as he hopes to be building his personal legacy as well as legacy homes. After a brief time in the corporate world, Lane’s son, Tyler, now 37, has been working with his father for more than 15 years. He jokes that he has inherited his dad’s meticulous eye for detail, which can be a gift and a curse.
“I think being a father-son small business is one of the things that sets us apart,” says Tyler. “We are always thinking about projects and ideas; even on vacation those conversations are happening. It’s great working with my dad, we have a good, natural synergy, and I honestly can’t imagine making a living any other way. Back when I was working on job site clean-ups in high school, I think I always knew that this is what I would do someday.”
Tyler has the same dedication to integrity and quality as his father and both take great pride in every job, never wanting to grow to a place where the individuality of each project is lost and the Myers’ personal touch isn’t evident. The two agree that their hope for the future of the business is that things don’t look much different than they do today.
“I love my job; I really enjoy the creative aspect,” says Tyler. “The projects are always unique; I like the challenges of the new styles and trends. I like coming up with solutions to problems. I’m constantly looking at how we can push ourselves to make more of an impact. And I am excited to continue doing what we do for a long time.”

“Yes, we have such a good thing going and my hope is to keep it rolling,” says Lane. “There’s no retirement any time soon for me. It’s always been about the passion and I still have it. I like to create homes and it is really great to have people appreciate it. The people who get it, that means a lot.”
