Crown Isle's K90 Programs Offers Advantages Over Traditional Custom Build Process

The Galiano is one of several homes in Crown Isle's K90 ProgramHomes by Crown Isle's innovative K90 programs offers custom home buyers many advantages over the traditional custom building process. With K90 you get the custom home you want, in addition to budget certainty, cost savings and timely completion.

K90 works like this: you choose a home that has already been completed to lock-up, with all the exterior elements of a finished home. The inside, though, is unfinished with only bare studs. You choose the floor plan and design elements you want. There are up to twenty finishing choices available. Ninety days later, you get the keys to your new, move-in ready home.

There are currently four K90 homes built or under construction in Crown Isle, with various floors plans and ranging in size from 2,100 sq. ft. to 2,800 sq. ft. in size. Choose between a two-storey home like the Waldorf II with two bedrooms plus den, or a rancher like the Galiano. Either way, you will get the quality and style that Crown Isle is known for.
