It’s that time of year again. Time to start something new. It’s a time to feel inspired to make our lives happier, healthier, and more enjoyable. With fresh enthusiasm, we tackle everything from getting in shape to getting organized.

While it’s true that our ability to keep our resolutions may not always last until Valentine’s Day, we have a solution to keep you on track this year: designing your own custom home with Adair Homes.

What’s the connection between keeping resolutions and building a new home? Designing your environment can have a positive impact on your ability to create a healthier life. Here are 4 of the most common New Year’s resolutions and how designing your own custom home can help you live a better life.

1. Get in Shape

When you design and build your own custom home there are lots of ways to create a fit-friendly home. Design an area specifically for fitness in your basement, upstairs bonus room, or in your master suite. Make it as big or as compact as you wish. Add electrical to install a wall mounted tv or sound system to make working out fun (well, almost). Another way to create a fit-friendly home is to choose a location close to open walking and bike trails so you’ll be inspired to explore while you get in shape. On days when the weather doesn’t cooperate, set up a media room where you (or the entire family) can gather to sweat to your favorite workout video. When you build a custom home you can create a space just for taking care of you.

2. Get Organized

A recent study found that clutter can cause stress, a feeling of being overwhelmed, and mental exhaustion. If you feel like you can’t seem to keep up on the clutter in your home, it may not be your fault. Older homes are simply not designed for the needs of modern families. Small closets, tiny or non-existent mudrooms, and minimal kitchen space can all contribute to a cluttered environment.

At Adair Homes, each one of our 35 custom home floor plans offers modern storage solutions that simplify your life and free up your brain. Many homes feature sanity-saving storage solutions including kitchen pantries, walk-in closets, ample storage in laundry room and baths, and added areas in the garage for storage. Of course, at Adair Homes that’s just the beginning. Customize any floor plan any way you like: bigger closets, built-ins, custom cabinetry, and more.

3. Eat Healthier

Let’s face it. Eating healthier is much easier when you have a kitchen you love to cook in. At Adair Homes you can custom design your kitchen any way you want. That means that it’s almost effortless to wash up the produce you bring home from the Farmer’s Market, easier to store your juicer or Vitamix, and more fun to stock your pantry with plenty of healthy ingredients.

4. Reduce Stress

Did you know that taking long weekends away throughout the year may be a better way to reduce stress than one long vacation? The Pacific Northwest is America’s outdoor playground, so why not consider building a custom home vacation getaway at the beach, in the mountains, or by the river? At Adair Homes we have custom home floor plans starting from just 783 square feet. This makes owning a vacation home easier and more affordable so you and your family can unplug, unwind, and relax.
