The KB homes at Carriage Hill will be built to current ENERGY STAR®
guidelines and include WaterSense® labeled faucets and fixtures, meaning
they are designed to be more energy- and water-efficient than most
typical new and resale homes available in the area. These energy- and
water-saving features are estimated to save homebuyers between $900 to
$1,500 a year in utility costs, depending on the floor plan.

As part of KB Home's distinct homebuilding process, buyers may
personalize many aspects of their new home to suit their budget and
preferences. After selecting their lot and floor plan, KB homebuyers may
work with expert design consultants who guide them through every aspect
of the process at the KB Home Design Studio, a retail-like showroom
where they may select from a plethora of design and décor choices,
including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances and window
