For homeowners who love a more modern style, the Riada Collection offers smart, efficient floor plans with contemporary exteriors characterized by clean lines, sleek materials, and fresh color palettes. For single-level living in style, the Bannock has everything you need in just under 2,500 square feet. Like every Adair Homes floor plan, you can customize it to match your lifestyle and your budget.

With four bedrooms (and an optional fifth), three bathrooms, and a spacious open-concept great room and dining area, the Bannock is perfect for growing families. Several options make this a flexible floor plan that can be adapted to suit your needs.

The Entry

One unique feature of this modern floor plan is the option to include a dramatic raised entry that delivers the “wow” factor as soon as you walk in the door. With or without this option, the statement door complemented by the stone column on the porch provides timeless curb appeal. The compact, quiet entry belies the large open space ahead. A conveniently located coat closet helps keep the space tidy, and for extra storage and organization, the utility room that connects to the garage can also serve as a mudroom.

The Den

Tucked to the right off the entry, the front den makes a perfect home office, especially for professionals who host meetings but don’t want visitors to walk through the rest of the house. The space can also be used for a game room, a studio, a library, or any other function that fits your lifestyle. If you need an additional bedroom for the kids or guests, the den can be converted to a fifth bedroom that opens to the shared hallway instead of the entry.

The Great Room

The great room is the hub of this happy home. The optional fireplace would make this the coziest room of the house all year long, but even without it, it’s easy to see how the space encourages togetherness. Open to the dining room and kitchen, the whole family will feel connected when you’re all in the common spaces. Family gatherings and visits from friends are made easy with plenty of space for seating and lounging.

The Dining Area

Adjacent to both the great room and the kitchen, the dining area can have either a casual or formal atmosphere. It makes a perfect homework spot for the kids on weekday afternoons but can easily be dressed up for holiday meals and dinner parties. Open flow from the kitchen makes it easy for the family chef to stay connected while cooking and chatting with the rest of the group. Sliding double doors to the outside let in plenty of natural light and increase the connection to the outdoors.

The Optional Patio

Just outside the sliding double doors in the dining room, it’s possible to include an optional covered patio. This feature is a great way to extend your living space during the warmer months and provides the possibility of outdoor dining. With convenient access to the kitchen just past the dining room, summer barbecues are a breeze. A covered patio provides shade from the hot summer sun and also lets you stay outside during a warm rain. If you have ample space in the backyard, the optional covered patio is a great addition to this modern floor plan.

The Kitchen

Often the heart of the home, this kitchen makes it easy for people to spend time around the island without getting in the cook’s way. Ample counter space and a sink in the island are cleverly designed with the home chef in mind. The classic kitchen work triangle provides efficient flow and keeps everything you need within easy reach. The gourmet kitchen option provides a second oven for large family meals and holiday gatherings. Although there are plenty of cabinets and storage areas in the kitchen, you can also add a walk-in pantry for storing bulk items, small kitchen appliances, and more. Large families who like to keep the shelves stocked should consider this extra storage space option.

The Master Suite

Tucked away in a corner by itself, the master suite has ultimate privacy. The entry, which is through the area between the kitchen and dining room, is flanked by the walk-in closet and master bath, making it feel even more secluded. The standard master bath comes with a combination shower/tub, but it’s possible to upgrade to separate fixtures for a true spa-like feel. Optional dual sinks give couples all the counter space they need.

The Bedrooms

On the other side of the home, separated from the master suite by the kitchen, dining room, and great room, three bedrooms sit along a shared hallway with another full bath. Each bedroom has both a large closet and a window, so the whole family can have a similar experience (no more fighting over who gets the best room). If you need only three bedrooms, the middle room can be converted to a bonus room that is open to the hallway, creating a more open feel in this corner of the home. You could use the bonus room as a play area, TV room, study area, or place to do your favorite hobbies.

The Bathrooms

The full bathroom near the bedroom cluster has a separate door to the toilet and shower, making it possible for others to use the sink at the same time. Optional dual sinks keep all the kids or guests happy with plenty of space to keep their toiletries. With the bonus room configuration, the bathroom gains a linen closet for extra storage. A half-bath near the great room also provides convenient access for guests and extra facilities for the nearby bedrooms.

The Garage

The two-car garage with an optional third bay has a classy door with horizontal windows that match the aesthetic of the front entry door. An optional side entry provides easy access to lawn equipment, tools, and more. The garage connects to the home through the utility room, making it easy to get in and out without being exposed to the elements. It’s also a convenient place to store boots, outerwear, sports equipment, and anything else the kids need.

The Utility Room

Connecting the garage and the front entry, the utility room houses the washer and dryer. A small closet and optional storage cabinets provide extra storage for tools, gardening supplies, athletic equipment, and more. An optional utility sink can be used for laundry, cleaning, gardening, and maintenance activities without requiring you to enter the main spaces in the house.  

The Storage Spaces

The Bannock is designed for large families and all of the stuff that comes with them. In addition to the storage spaces in the utility room and closets in every bedroom, this home also has a coat closet in the entry and two storage closets in the hallway near the bedrooms. The master bath has ample room for a storage shelf or cabinet, and the kitchen walls are lined with cabinets.

The Exterior

A mix of cladding materials and textures keeps the exterior interesting with both horizontal and vertical lines. A touch of stone provides the perfect accent to the modern style, making it feel grounded and classic at the same time. The low-pitched roof lines evoke a mid-century modern vibe that is accentuated by the horizontal windows in the entry and garage doors. Muted colors with warm accents are pleasing to any palate but unique enough to stand out in the neighborhood.


If you like the modern exterior of the Bannock but aren’t sure about the floor plan, consider one of the other options in the Riada Collection. The Taylor is another single-level plan with a smaller footprint at just over 1,800 square feet. If you prefer to live on two floors, the stately Vaughn and the sleek Everett are excellent options.
