With stunning mountain views, 300 days of sunshine, and a desert-like climate that will make you want to get outside and explore the natural beauty that surrounds you, Central Oregon is a great place to settle into a new custom home. Whether you want a clear budget from the outset or just don’t want to make every little decision, starting with custom house plans is a great way to kick off the homebuilding process. You can choose a layout based on your current lifestyle and future plans so you’ll get the most from your investment.

Among the many benefits to a partnership with Adair Homes is our involvement from start to finish. While Adair Homes doesn’t supply purchasable lots to customers, our Home Ownership Counselors have close professional relationships with those who do. 

Joe Zampko is one of these well-connected Home Ownership Counselors. In one of our virtual open houses, Zampko said, “We are a build-on-your-own-lot builder, which means that with our financing, we allow you to include the land, home, [and] site development all in one through our sister company, Alliance Financial Services.” 

Through Alliance, you can determine whether you’re prequalified to purchase a piece of land. As Zampko said, “We make sure you’re on track to building your dream home with Adair.” 

Part of keeping you on track to building your dream home means providing you with upgrades to create the home that’s right for you. However, where Adair Homes separates itself from the competition is in what we include in our base price that our competitors consider upgrades. For example, “All of our homes come with central A/C and [a] heat pump,” Zampko said. “Typically, that’s a $16,000-$18,000 upgrade [for other builders], so that’s a huge value Adair has to offer for our clients that’s built into the base price of the home.”

If you’re all set to check out some of our most popular customizable floor plans in Central Oregon, we have created a rundown of the highlights of each of these homes to help you decide on which one is right for you.

As an on-your-lot builder, Adair Homes has the privilege of working with landowners all across the Mid Columbia Valley, determining the best layout and placement for new custom homes. Many of our clients have newly acquired properties that already contain structures, like manufactured homes. These properties can often be purchased at a ‘reduced’ price in comparison to like-properties with stick-built homes, and create an opportunity to live on property while a new home is being constructed.
