My passion for homebuilding dates back to early childhood when my father and uncle started up a construction company in California. After nearly two decades of marketing experience, I was honored to join the Adair Homes team in 2015. I am proud to promote our message of affordable quality homes so that even more future homeowners can realize their dream. Rooted in the PNW; you are likely to find me hiking, volunteering in my daughter's theater group, or curled up with a good book when I am not when I am not coordinating our advertising efforts or dreaming up creative concepts that might make the customer experience a little more enjoyable.

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Nov 9, 2017 6:34:57 AM

For many people, building a custom home is completely new territory. Even if you are already a homeowner, the process is much different from buying an existing home. You have to find land, secure financing, and, of course, get a custom home design. It’s easy to assume that every new custom home must start with an architect, but this isn’t necessarily the case.

In fact, you can work with an integrated team that includes a design team, builder, estimator, and materials purchasing staff to create a beautiful new home that has the features and floor plans you want. There are multiple benefits to taking this route, including cost savings and better budget management.
