Dirt moving, as they say in the industry, might sound boring to some—but don’t tell that to any kid who used to love their Tonka Trucks. And, considering how important ‘dirt moving’ is to any construction site—we’d have to say that excavation is one of the most important parts of the entire site development process. Steady, accurate excavation jobs lead to strong foundations, and ultimately, beautiful, well-built homes.

The Best Home Window Options: Jeld-Wen vs. the Rest

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on May 20, 2021 7:15:00 AM

One of the ways Adair Homes helps control the costs of building a new home is by developing strong relationships with suppliers. 

When it comes to windows, we partner with Jeld-Wen, one of the world’s largest reliable window manufacturers. Jeld-Wen has more than a hundred facilities throughout the world, and two of them are near Adair Homes locations in the Pacific Northwest, allowing us to source our materials locally and save on shipping costs. 

Founded in Oregon in 1960, Jeld-Wen has always cared about the communities that its employees live in. One of the ways it does this is by making contributions to the Jeld-Wen Foundation, which enhances the communities of its employees. We respect the company’s commitment to both quality products and its communities, which is why we have partnered with Jeld-Wen for nearly seven years. We are confident that the Jeld-Wen windows we install today will provide protection against weather for years to come.

To learn more about why we choose to partner with this quality, caring company over other window manufacturers, read on.

Adair Homes is excited to introduce a brand new duplex custom home floor plan:
The Pines.

If you’re in the market for a flexible home, Adair Homes has the home for you. 

The Pines is a side-by-side duplex packed with some of our most popular design features and offers an almost unlimited number of options for use: as a first home, a vacation home, investment property, and more. The Pines is also a popular option for multigenerational families because both units are very spacious. 

The two units are designed with great room concepts that are suitable for hosting or relaxing. One can imagine the many activities that could take place here: a dinner party with friends or a quiet night spent with the family. The spaciousness extends to practical use in these units too. The bedrooms are on separate sides of the house, and the master bedroom comes with a utility closet for extra storage.

Just as we promote customization on nearly every house we design, buyers of The Pines have the opportunity to add a back patio, extra garage space, or studio. Regardless of the size of your family, you can bet that The Pines will suit your living needs.

Choosing the Right Siding for Your Dream Home

Choosing from various house siding options is an important step in the design process. Your home’s exterior says a lot about you. Do you want to stand out from the neighbors, blend in with an established aesthetic, or do you have specific features in mind? Materials, styles, and colors all play a role in the overall look and feel of your home.

Different types of siding also require varying levels of maintenance and durability. At Adair Homes, we use low-maintenance, long-lasting materials, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding and weather-resistant cedar shingles, to create the look you desire without the hassle of cracking, bending, rusting, or fading that can occur with other types of siding materials.

Did you know that according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, women comprise only 10.9% of construction industry jobs? That includes women in the trades and administrative positions! Explored further, the women working in construction are primarily employed in office roles (over 86%), meaning that a mere 2.5% of women in the industry are actually on-the-job tradespeople.

All that to say—when you meet a professional like Lori Erickson, you are meeting a one-in-a-million, beat-the-odds, high-five-her-she’s-awesome kinda gal.

Budget-Friendly Custom Home Floor Plans

Topics: Homebuilding Tips, Floor Plans

Dreaming of building your own custom home the way you want it but worried that it will blow your new-home budget? If so, we have great news: Building a custom home is surprisingly easy and affordable. At Adair Homes, we feature dozens of custom home floor plans that range from just over 1,000 to more than 3,000 square feet.

Although the current interest rates are some of the lowest on record, building a home on a budget is still a high priority for many people. Although the recent spike in the cost of construction materials could balance out the low interest rates in the short term, you still might have room in your budget to add more features than you could have with the same budget a few years ago.

Regardless of what your budget is, understanding the various costs—land, site work, and home construction—at the beginning of the process will allow you to make informed decisions and get the most from your new home budget.

Here are a few of our most budget-friendly custom home floor plans:
