What does CUSTOM-i-ZABLE mean?
Others claim to customize…we actually do it. Our floor plans are a framework to get you started. You have the freedom to move walls, doors and windows. You can also rearrange traffic flow, move and expand rooms, finish basements and add lights where you want them… giving you extensive options.
When the CUSTOM-i-ZING is complete, a process is in place that brings your home to an on time completion with the features we have helped you select.
Our sales representatives are company employees and are very familiar with our building processes and can give general price guidance on most options in real time. They are also able to suggest changes and additions that have proven popular with many customers in the past and that work well to enhance the floor plan you have chosen. We can also help you identify those features which you may not have considered that will improve your living experience for many years to come.
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 floorplans are just a framework to get started and we will make very significent changes 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 for 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.”
Get creative and customize your dream home just the way you want it
According to owner Rick Koze, “Every homeowner is different, shouldn’t your home reflect that difference?”
