Paragon Homes includes a lot of options from the start

New Home Standard Options with Paragon

Built to a higher standard

Many homebuyers consider custom home building to be too expensive, too complicated, and too aggravating, opting instead to compromise by purchasing an existing home. They then spend the next year or more — not to mention a small fortune — on renovations and remodels, turning their home into what they really wanted in the first place.

Paragon Homes understands why homebuyers make such decisions, which is why we've spent the past 30+ years perfecting how to provide the custom home building experience you deserve. One of the many ways we accomplish that is by providing standard features that other builders charge extra for. Take our 2x6 exterior wall construction with wood sheathing and Tyvek, for example.

Our 2x6 construction allows for a much sturdier structure, vastly improved insulation, and a quieter home. Coupled with 16" on-center studs for both exterior and interior walls, these standard features exemplify the quality construction you deserve. Our competitors, on the other hand, treat these features as "upgrades," and charge exorbitant extra fees for them. This makes our competitors look more affordable at first blush, but once you add your favorite features and upgrades, you realize the cost has ballooned out of control.

With Paragon, these upgrades come standard with every home, at a much more reasonable price. By making them standard practice, all materials, tools, and methods are already in place. As an organic part of our business, we have no need to charge outrageous fees.

Designing and building your custom home with Paragon isn't just painless and cost-effective — it's an amazingly creative, incredibly fulfilling process that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

We believe in building to a higher standard — that goes for relationships as well as homes. Working side-by-side with you, our collaborative design approach, thoughtful craftsmanship, and superior materials turn your custom home into a labor of love for all of us. And we want you to be as happy with your new home as we are proud to have built it.
