These days, there are so many diverse options for a home’s exterior. Choosing the floorplan, style, color and other customizations for your custom home can help to convey your own personal style, whether it’s classic and traditional, modern, rustic or somewhere in between.

No matter what style you’re envisioning for the exterior of your custom home, Adair Homes has you covered. Here, we explore the key customization options for our exteriors:

Design Style

Adair Homes offers six exterior options: Classic, Traditions, Signature, Craftsman, Impressions, Farmhouse, and the new Riada collection. While these exterior options all look quite different, they do have one thing in common-- each package is crafted with superior materials. Choosing between them is a matter of taste, not quality.

Let’s take a look at our six exterior packages. We’ll also help you figure out which one works best for your custom home design ideas.


Do you love time-honored design elements? Tasteful, gracious, and reserved, the Classic home exterior package offers beauty in simple details. What stands out most in this design is the clean lines, which makes it both classic and modern at the same time. In the Classic, you can clearly see the high-quality materials used in the James Hardie© fiber cement siding to protect your home and give it a handsome appearance.



The Traditions home exterior package features a timeless look. Traditions are very similar in look and feel to the Signature package, yet not as ornate or intricate. It creates a traditional design that appeals to a wide range of homeowners. Because this package is built with James Hardie©, you’ll enjoy quality craftsmanship for decades to come.



Similar to Traditions, the Signature home exterior package is ageless and will outlive trends and fads. This package often includes the sophisticated embellishments that suggest an eye for detail. Although you will find rustic flourishes prominently featured in this design, the Signature is always elegant and refined.



The Craftsman exterior package knows the difference is in the details, with open porches, a low-pitched gable roof, and projecting eaves. It uses natural materials, and many of our Craftsman packages include the tell-tale tapered columns on the front porch. Also of special note are the multi pane windows. Notice how the James Hardie© fiber cement can take on a very rustic expression, while still retaining the benefits of a durable siding.



Stylistically, the Impressions exterior package is classic in its design and is similar to Signature and Traditions. What sets it apart is all of the little touches. Shutters, bold columns, two paned windows, and many special extras that call to mind a classic New England-style manor.



The Farmhouse style combines country character with just enough modern touches. Here, the Hardie© siding features a vertical style that gives the home a welcoming, farmhouse feel. Details such as wider front porches and barn-style garage doors also add to the character and charm of this design.

The Riada Collection

Our newest exterior style is the Riada Collection, which is a blend of modern and contemporary. Here, the Hardie© siding features an Artisan V Groove siding as well as a stunning flat panel. The roofline is completely unique in this collection and will vary from an angled roof to a low pitch hip --- whichever works best for the plan.



We know how important it is for your home to hold up against the elements and last for decades to come. That’s why all of our exterior packages use materials provided by James Hardie©, the world leader in fiber cement siding. The siding is rot-resistant, ideal for protection against warping from humidity--a godsend in this moisture-rich environment. And unlike wood, it won’t catch fire or crumble from termites.

When it comes to weathering the Pacific Northwest, you’ll love your durable James Hardie© siding, which is backed by a 30-year non-prorated warranty. Here at Adair Homes, we are proud to be one of the only 100% Hardie Homes* builder in the entire Pacific Northwest.

Exterior Paint

Just like the design of your home’s exterior, its paint can also have a huge impact on the overall look of the house. That’s why we offer a wide range of exterior paint options, including crisp whites, modern greys, warm blues and reds, and classic neutrals. This is another area in which James Hardie© fiber cement benefits you: The siding lends itself perfectly to a variety of exterior paint colors, so you can also easily change your paint color to match your style.
