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.

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.

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:

Floor Plans Perfect for Larger, Multigenerational Families

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on May 3, 2021 8:00:00 AM

Topics: Floor Plans

Multigenerational homes are one of the latest trends in homebuilding. Since the global pandemic, multigenerational home purchases have increased for a variety of reasons, the most important reason being to care for aging parents, followed by spending more time with family and cost savings. 

With all that said, the trend toward multigenerational homes had begun before the pandemic, which tells us this trend is expected to continue post pandemic. Parents are moving in with their adult children to help them raise kids, to help manage healthcare issues, or just to be closer to their family in general. It’s also common for adult children to return home after college to save money on living expenses or to continue helping out around the house.

The benefits of multigenerational living are clear and varied. Whether it’s to share financial and homeownership responsibilities, to strengthen relationships, or to ensure the safety of the elderly and children, it’s also important for everyone to have their own space. Choosing a flexible design option allows for private retreats in the home that are essential for minimizing family tension and for personal well-being. 

If you’re considering building a multigenerational home or just want to have that option in the future, consider some of these customizable floor plans. For the sake of convenience, we have organized the floor plans by our primary regions of the country: the Pacific Northwest and Central and Southern Arizona.

Best Floor Plans For Entertaining

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Apr 30, 2021 8:00:00 AM

Topics: Floor Plans


If you're the entertaining type, you know how important a home's floor plan is.

Today’s homebuyers have much different priorities than those of only 10 or 20 years ago. These days, most buyers are looking for open-concept homes, state-of-the-art kitchens, and inviting outdoor living spaces, among other features. A love of entertaining is part of the reason behind this shift in priorities. The traditional formal living room and separate dining room don’t fit into this new attitude of homeowning.

Today, homeowners want flexible, open, free-flowing floor plans that allow for all types of get-togethers. Homeowners who love to entertain know that an open floor plan is much better for hosting Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner, movie night, book club, and everything in between. Contemporary homes make better use of square footage with large living areas; open-concept kitchens and dining rooms; and multiuse rooms that are perfect for home theaters, game rooms, and more.
