Melissa Lynn Galland

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.

Plan Spotlight: Adair's 2659

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Sep 27, 2013 1:00:00 AM

Topics: Custom Home Design, Floor Plans

There are many special features that make our 2659 model one of our most popular. These features begin when you walk in the front door. The den with the double doors off of the entry hall creates a very welcoming atmosphere. The oversized laundry room, which gives access from the garage to the entry hall includes a large number of cabinets, a pantry and a sink. Also off the entry hallway is the powder room for easy access by your guests.

As you continue down the entry hall you see the beautiful and large kitchen with ample storage and a beautiful, well designed island with sink. The open great room concept with the kitchen, dining and living all visible at the end of entry hall gives the home a spacious and open feel.

The large master suite on the main floor includes vaulted ceilings, a beautiful master bath and large walk in closet. This bedroom is separated from all others and provides a large degree of privacy.

At the top of the stairs you come into the bonus room. This is a large and very usable space. Depending on your family needs it can be a play room, home office, library, craft/sewing area… the ideas are endless. Also near the top of the stairs is a well located bathroom with dual sinks. The upstairs is complete with three roomy bedrooms with large closets and three hallway closets for extra storage.

The double car garage has one bay that is extra-long to give room for a work bench, storage or whatever your special needs are.

This value priced home has an incredible flow, both for daily living and for entertaining. Learn more about one of our most popular plans, including more gallery pictures and multiple virtual tours, by visiting our 2659 plan page.

The complete remodel of our South Puget Sound office is finally done, and it looks great.

If you've driven by our 2303 93rd Ave SW address recently, you know we even updated the graphics on the sign. If you're in the neighborhood, please feel welcome to stop in and see all the improvements. While you're there you can also visit our new 2659 model home. With 4 bedrooms, a master on the main design, and an open living concept, it's one of our most popular plans. Don't be too surprised if it starts you thinking about a new, custom Adair home. Look forward to seeing you soon!

Step #1 - Determining Your Budget

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Aug 12, 2013 1:00:48 AM

Topics: Homebuilding Tips, Financing

It may seem obvious, but there are not many things that are more important to the home building process than your ability to comfortably afford the home you've chosen. Whether your finances allow you to simply make the purchase, or you need a construction loan, it pays to turn to your builder for advice and assistance. A financial pre-qualification can help you determine the loan amount most comfortable for your family based on your "debt to income" ratio. Once you've settled on a budget that suits your means, you're ready to determine the total cost for your project, including the land, your home, and site development costs. Identifying these three items is crucial to choosing a home that fits your finances, as well as your needs and wants.

New Model Home in Olympia, WA

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on May 30, 2013 1:00:41 AM

Topics: Floor Plans, Finding Land

Adair Homes is very excited that our South Puget Sound Office in Olympia, WA can start to unveil a beautiful new model home. The 1700 square foot home they used for almost ten years was really cozy, but construction materials and techniques, especially for saving energy, have changed so much. We feel it is important to show customers what we build into our homes today. The best part of building the new model is that we were able to donate the old home to a deserving local family who moved it to a lot near our office.

Introducing Adair's New 2104 Floor Plan

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Mar 20, 2013 4:25:43 PM

Topics: Custom Home Design, Floor Plans

Adair Homes is excited to announce another new floor plan. Our 2104 features an open design with 3 or 4 bedrooms and can be built without a garage if needed. This split bedroom plan offers additional privacy from the other rooms, but the common living areas are spacious and designed for comfort and functionality. With minimal transitions, such as hallways, this home offers an efficient use of the square footage with more usable space. The formal dining room right off the kitchen allows interaction between the two spaces all while providing a more private setting. If a formal dining room is not for you, don't worry- you can change it to a den or a fourth bedroom. Two great features of the kitchen include a large island and walk-in pantry. Coupled with the open floor plan, spacious kitchen, and formal dining, this home is great for large families and for entertaining. Let's not forget about the master suite. Situated in the back of the home and separated from the other bedrooms, this master suite provides a mini oasis from the chaos of everyday life. The 5 piece master bath features a large walk-in closet, soaker tub, shower stall, and double sinks. If you are interested in pricing information for this floor plan or any of our 40+ others, please contact us through our website or call your local Adair Homes office.
