Adair Homes is known for quality craftsmanship at a price you can afford throughout the Western United States. We’ve built our business around the premise that home ownership provides financial freedom—and when we work with our customers—we help them build wealth. With this in mind, Adair has always built homes a bit differently than the rest of the Homebuilders out there… We’ve invited our homeowners to roll up their sleeves and work alongside our contractors, thereby earning sweat equity throughout the building process. As a result, Adair homeowners have realized more equity at closing than the typical new home buyer.

These days there are a lot of options for people who want to build a new home. When considering your options, you might want to look into kit homes and on-your-lot builders—also known as custom home builders—if you want to save money and do some of the work yourself. While both approaches allow you to get more house for your money by building sweat equity, they are two very different approaches:

  • Kit homes are the easy-to-build, DIY approach to homebuilding. 
  • Custom homes are the best option if you want to personalize nearly every aspect of your home. 

Understanding the difference between them can help you decide which option is right for you. Let’s find out more about how to choose your dream home.
