KB Homes has been a nationwide builder of quality homes for fifty years. KB builds in all major housing markets across the country. KB Homes strives to offer superior quality construction, unique architecture and dedicated customer service. KB has developed a number of architectural designs that reduce energy use and have earned Comfort Wise and Energy Star ratings. KB also works with the Natural Resources Defense Council to help assure that lumber used in KB Homes does not come from endangered or old-growth forests. KB Home has created a unique,step-by-step plan, Built To Order™, that guides customers through the entire construcution process. Each phase of construction has a specific quality checkpoint that must be passed in order to move on to the next phase.
You are meet with your sales person and superintendent for a final review of your home plans.
Pre-pour checkpoint includes a review of the lot prior to pouring the slab.
KB Homes checks soil conditions,government requirements, and home size to ensure structural integrity. Post-tension engineering is used to stabilize each foundation.
Before framing starts, the foundation and post-tension engineering are checked.
Lumber Drop and Framing
The framing stage usually takes one to four weeks, and consists of the following:
Walls start going up, work starts on the second-floor system (if applicable), using engineered floor joists.
Roof trusses arrive at the homesite
During the framing stage, there are three separate checkpoints: the frame of the house is checked for correct sizing, squareness and workmanship.
Plumbing and Electrical
Air conditioning, heating, ventilation, plumbing and electrical wiring are installed.
Once the roof is installed, the exterior detail work begins, including trim, windows and doors.
HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) and plumbing systems are “roughed-in” as exterior trim is completed.
The electrical system is “roughed-in” during two days.
Exterior trim is painted
Mechanical systems are inspected.
It takes about two days to hang interior drywall. Then, drywall taping and finishing are completed and isulation is is blown in
There are two checkpoints before drywall begins and after its completion: Upon cleaning up any drywall debris, FCMs check all walls and ceilings for finish and consistency.
Trim and Finish Details
Two-week phase during which all customized trim and finsih details are completed
Three quality checkpoints, trim, pre-carpeting, and pre-final are conducted during this phase:
Interior trim is examined for fit and quality of installation.
HVAC systems are finished as a pre-final quality check focuses on all completed areas of the home.
Pre-final quality review of entire home. Appliances are installed.
Door and window screens are installed.
Carpeting is installed.
Various final inspections (bank, city, etc.), garage cleaning and paint touch-ups take place.
Upon completion of the finals, one last quality check is conducted prior to scheduling the homeowner orientation.
