Looking for a first-floor master bedroom? Look no further

Categories: Active Adult, Indian Creek | Posted: October 21, 2020

Kay Builders has been constructing high-quality, in-demand homes in Lehigh Valley for six decades. We know, more than any other builder in the area, what customers are looking for when they buy a home. And right now, there’s a boom in demand for first-floor master bedrooms. Other builders haven’t seemed to catch on to this trend yet. In fact, we estimate that 80 percent of our competitors don’t offer ranch plans—but we’re way ahead of it. Learn how a master on the main initiative changed the way we select floor plans. 

Where to find them 

Designed by professional architects with expertise in building first-floor masters, Kay Builders offers more than 25 different plans with this desirable luxury. Every single community we build features multiple plans with a master on the main, and The Fields at Indian Creek, our active-adult community in Emmaus for those 55 and over, doesn’t include any homes without a first-floor master. 

Why you’ll want one 

We’ve identified the importance of including these plans in our repertoire, and we’ve taken even further steps in ensuring that they help improve the lives of our homeowners. First, we always include a crawl space in our homes with first-floor masters. When built upon a crawl space, homes and their flooring have a bit of a “bounce”, which while just as sturdy and stable as a house built on slab, is much easier on joints. Second, we take the rest of the home’s layout into consideration when including a master on the main. Even if you want your bedroom on the main floor, you still want a sense of separation from your living, dining and working spaces. That’s why we include strategic hallways and foyers in our designs, to offer additional separation while still being functional and not interrupting the flow of your floor plan. 

Where they came from 

Ranch-style homes were popularized in the 20th century, and were dominating the home-building industry by the 1950s in certain parts of the United States. We’re not sure why the demand didn’t quite resonate with the Lehigh Valley area, but we’re happy to be building them now.
