I just got done meeting with Wayne from Adair. He seems like a great guy and good representative for Adair Homes. He gave me lots of information and checklists (and I do enjoy lists!). There are several Adair Homes being built in this area at various stages. We will have to make several decisions before we build, no matter which builder we go with.
First: WHERE do we want the new house?
Option #1 Closer to the river with a spectacular view:
Pros-VIEW, maybe a little more light?
Cons-Tons more site prep=expense, might have to move the yard, dangerous to be TOO near the cliff?
Option #2 In front of our existing house with a less-than-spectacular river canyon view:
Pros-Much less site/prep=less expense and time, view, more light, no need to move yard.
Cons-Less view, closer to road (noise), might dictate size/layout based on what will fit.
