The Before, During, and After of Building with Adair

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Aug 2, 2019 7:12:28 AM

It’s fun to dream about building a new home. You can easily picture the end result—enjoying family dinners on the back patio, planting flowers in front of the porch, and retreating to your master suite at the end of the day. What you might not be able to clearly envision is the process it takes to get there, especially if you have never built a new home before. 

Working with a trusted partner is critical when building a new custom home. You want to feel supported throughout the process and know that your budget is being respected. You want to know that somebody is available to answer your questions and put your mind at ease when you have doubts. After building more than 20,000 homes in over 50 years, we can confidently say that the Adair Homes process works. Here’s a little bit more about the before, during, and after of building with Adair.
