Kay Builders: Truly CUSTOM-i-ZABLE Homes in the Lehigh Valley

Kay Builders: Truly CUSTOM-i-ZABLE Homes in the Lehigh Valley

May 15, 2015

Kay Builders (Kay) has been serving the Lehigh Valley exclusively for nearly 60 years. Kay is the largest residential homebuilder and developer in the Lehigh Valley having constructed over 3500 homes and 30 communities.   The company has led the Lehigh Valley in terms of homes settled in each of the last three years and is actively selling in six communities.

One of the reasons Kay Builders was able to grow through the past housing recession is because they are one of the only truly CUSTOM-i-ZABLE homebuilders that remain in operation today. “Some builders will say their homes are customized but that is within a template,” says Rick Koze, president of Kay Builders. “Our floor plans are just a framework to get started and we will do anything a customer wants done to that plan, including moving walls to rearrange traffic flows, adding or subtracting square footage, relocating bathrooms, allowing full kitchen redesigns and just about any other structural change you can think of. Our knowledgeable in-house sales staff and in-house architecture team are able to help a customer select the features they desire. What is unique is that our process allows us to deliver these changes very cost effectively and quickly. These are features and capabilities not seen at a price point under $300,000. Imagine being able to customize a townhome under $230,000.”

Scott Schwartz, a native of the Lehigh Valley considered building his own custom home for some time. Instead, the single engineer visited Kay Builders’ Laurel Field in Upper Macungie and liked the model offerings.

“When I found out I could customize this house, I decided to buy here. My girlfriend and I like to travel so I wanted something low maintenance,” says the 27 year-old of his town home. The builder added a bank of windows on the back of Schwartz’s two-story great room so he could enjoy his “beautiful, private view.” Schwartz also wanted a two-sided fireplace between the kitchen and living room. He was able to pick out his own stone and hearth. “I didn’t have to wait any longer with these upgrades,” says the engineer.

Crystal Koronian decided to swap rooms in her Laurel Field town home. She shopped around for a new home in the area and found Kay Builders to be the most flexible.

“The upgrades with other builders are basics here,” she says. Now in her town home a year, she loves the custom features of the house she shares with her parents. “We picked a floor plan and once the walls were up I told them I wanted to move the kitchen to another location,” says Koronian, who moved here from New York. “I preferred having the kitchen isolated and not off of the living room. So we moved it into the dining room; I now have a bigger kitchen and at no extra expense other than moving a gas line. Our living room and dining room now open up to each other and I like it that way.”

Kay Builders’ Lehigh Valley communities are Trexler Field, Laurel Field, Trio Fields and The Fields at Lockridge, Blue Ridge Chase and the Fields at Indian Creek. The company builds all home types including townhomes, twin homes, small single homes, luxury single homes serving both the age restricted and non-age restricted markets.
