The Hickmans' Waldport Oasis: A Testament to Collaboration and Customization 

When the Hickman family decided to make their dream of owning a stunning beach home on the Oregon Coast a reality, they knew they were in for an adventure. Nestled in the charming town of Waldport, Oregon, their dream home was about to take shape. However, there were unique challenges ahead, including the stringent requirements of the Homeowners' Association (HOA). Fortunately, they found a trusted partner in Adair Homes, a company known for its personal touch and team of professionals.

Meeting HOA Requirements: A Challenge Accepted

Waldport, Oregon, is renowned for its breathtaking coastline and picturesque landscapes. However, this natural beauty is protected by building requirements both in the surrounding area, and within each neighborhood. The Hickman’s chosen property had very specific covenants and restrictions, ensuring exterior aesthetics, landscaping, and structural modifications for health and safety on the coastline. The Hickmans were well aware of these requirements when they embarked on their home-building journey and sought out a builder who could navigate these regulations while creating a home that reflected their unique style.

Adair Homes: A Trusted Partner in Customization 

Enter Adair Homes, a company renowned for its adaptability and commitment to turning dreams into reality. The Hickmans knew that Adair Homes was their ideal partner. “The Adair Homes website was well designed, and the home prices seemed reasonable. We also liked the floor plan options,” says the Hickmans. “We currently live in a house built in 1921, so we were ready for a new house with all the options and not much maintenance.”

With Adair Homes on their side, the Hickmans were confident that they could meet the HOA requirements while still creating a home that was uniquely theirs.

A Dream Interior: Customization at Its Best 

But the Hickmans' vision didn't stop at exterior modifications. They had specific interior design requests that were close to their hearts. Fortunately, Adair Homes offered an extensive range of options for interior upgrades, allowing the Hickmans to transform their house into a home that perfectly matched their taste and lifestyle.

The Winchester was the plan of choice. “It was big enough but not too big and fit on our lot well,” says Merrill. When asked about their favorite design features, he elaborated on the variety of choices throughout the home. “I personally love the big garage, the fireplace, the tile, the can lighting,” he continues, “the craftsman trim around doors and windows, the shower and bathtub upgrades, and the flooring.” 

The Art of Custom Tile Work

Carol, with a keen eye for detail, envisioned custom tile work that would elevate the interior to new heights of elegance and sophistication. Adair Homes' design team, with their expertise and dedication, brought Carol's vision to life.  

“The tile work in the kitchen and surrounding the fireplace are my two favorite features,” says Carol. 

The results speak for themselves: an amazing showcase of custom tile work that adds artistry to every corner of their home.

Creating Space for RV Enthusiasts: A Custom Garage

Merrill, on the other hand, had a specific need in mind. They needed a garage that not only housed their RV but also provided ample room for other essentials. Adair Homes, ever the creative problem-solver, stepped up to the challenge. After working with our drafting department, a custom garage was created, tailored to meet Merrill's needs and preferences, with room to spare.

A Pleasure to Work With: Building a Legacy

Says Merrill,

The customer service with the whole Adair Team was outstanding.  Our Home Ownership Counselor’s help in the beginning and at several crucial steps was excellent. He picked up our permits from the county as we were not in town and helped us find a contractor for the retaining wall.”

Carol is equally pleased. “We have a beautiful home here! We love how it turned out. We can walk to an amazing beach which we do almost every night to watch the sunset.” 

In Waldport, Oregon, where coastal beauty meets the charm of a close-knit community, the Hickman family's Adair Homes experience serves as a shining example of what's possible when dreams are paired with expertise, creativity, and a shared vision.
