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:
