The homebuyers are offered to choose from 12 flexible floor plans, which can accommodate two to six bedrooms, two to four and a half baths, two to three car garages and a partial basement. Homebuyers also have the option to add a study, home office or a media center. Buyers can also choose from a host of flooring and lighting options, cabinetry and energy-efficient appliances.
Owing to its operational business model KBnxt, KB Home always begins construction only after a purchase agreement is executed. Therefore, consumers buying KB homes have the liberty to plan their homes according to their preference.
All the homes will offer Energy Star certified appliances and Wiser home management systems, which will help residents save on their utility bills. The homes will also incorporate a built-in USB port in the kitchen so that gadgets such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and other appliances can be charged easily. In addition, after the charging is complete, the USB outlet automatically shuts down to save electricity.
