At Adair, we believe in the quality of our homes so much, many of our employees build them too! Josh Biggs is an Adair Homes employee who is currently building his custom Adair home in Camas, WA. Josh graciously agreed to share his story with us of how he went from considering a lot to a brand new build that became a multi-generational home for him and his family.

  • What made you decide to build a home? 

  • We had talked about building a home for many years, but we wanted to keep our daughter in the same elementary school. We often looked at land that was available and our Pinterest was filled with all of the ideas we had once we were ready. Our daughter is moving into middle school next year, so we decided now was the right time. We worked with our lender and Adair to build a budget and then found the right land within a few weeks, sold our house, and we were off and running.

  • Which floor plan did you choose and which feature are you most looking forward to? 

  • We chose the Bannock because we like the Modern exterior look, 11' ceilings and large open kitchen and living room. We were able to make some modifications to create a covered patio and fireplace, so we could enjoy outdoor living in the Northwest year round.

  • What are your tips for other buyers? 

  • The first step is working with Adair and your lender to build a budget. We chose to find land first and put in the offer on the land contingent on the sale of our home–we listed our home as soon as the offer was accepted and sold our home right away. As part of this process, as soon as we identified the land we worked with the Adair Construction superintendent to ensure our plan fit on the land (with a couple of tweaks). Jeff, our construction superintendent, was a big help in ensuring we were confident with the land and plan we chose.

  • How have you modified your home to make it multi-generational? 

  • We made modifications to our home by creating a space just for grandpa. He has his own kitchen and bathroom, as well as his own exterior door. This was was a must for us, and are grateful we were able to work with the design team to make these changes.
