With Amazon’s HQ2 well on its way, aspiring homeowners moving to the area are having difficulties finding affordable housing, especially in the Arlington, VA, area. Why settle for a home that doesn’t have your preferred features or pay a premium for a space that does fit your lifestyle? While it isn’t an easy decision to make, there’s also the option of building on your current lot, which Paradigm Homes can assist you with. Our Design/Build services extend from the pre-construction and construction phases, consisting of creating a design with the help of your creativity, finish selections, final pricings, as well as permit submissions. We want your Home Building experience to be everything you imagined and more, so we are here to help you every step of the way.


Once you’re ready to build the home of your dreams on your own lot, here’s what you need to know to help you streamline your Design/Build process: 

Choose Your Lot

When considering Building on your own lot, it can begin on a plot of land that you love, or one you currently own, with your favored architect, a floor plan, or a Custom Home Builder. If you currently own land, then you are already closer to achieving your dream home. If you’re considering building your Custom Home soon but don’t have a plot of land to build on yet,  Paradigm Homes can help with that, as well. Our vast real estate network will be made available to you for the lot search and to make your Design/Build process seamless and efficient. 

Design a Floor Plan

Whether you prefer an “aging in place home” or a multi-generational Custom Home, design a floor plan that will fit your specific lifestyle. It’s always a good idea to plan for lifestyle improvement, rather than planning for re-selling your home in the future. This way, you will be able to really settle into the home of your dreams. It is also good to keep in mind your budget, as it will determine how much customization you can implement. If you aren’t sure where to start, allow us to assist you! We will help you to create a realistic budget,  prioritize your needs, and create a floor plan that’s specifically designed for your life.

Team up with a Home Builder

Working together with a reputable Custom Home Builder in your local area will help you save more money in the long run, as it will help you avoid additional costs from overlooked tasks or purchasing cheap materials. Our team has developed strong connections with a list of vendors carrying the highest quality of products, so you will be able to have a wide-selection of options to choose from.
