Get the Best of Both Worlds by Building in Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase sits just 7 miles from the historical monuments, neoclassical buildings, and storied hustle and bustle of Washington, D.C. This bucolic town has a population of less than 10,000 and features architectural styles that include Colonial bungalows, Tudor manors, and modern homes that emphasize a more minimalist, geometric aesthetic. Chevy Chase also boasts a lot of natural beauty with numerous parks and trails. 

Residents get to enjoy the town’s commercial and entertainment district, which centers around bars, grills, and piano lounges located on Connecticut Avenue. Friendship Heights is an adjoining city that boasts more upscale fare with restaurants, boutiques, and malls near Wisconsin Avenue. Along with its sister-city Bethesda, Chevy Chase has been named the Most Educated Town in America, with 93.5% of residents having at least a bachelor’s degree. Residents include the Washington elite who work in politics, finance, business, and management. 

As a Chevy Chase home builder, we’re excited to work with you to design the house of your dreams, or to remodel your existing property into a space that better meets your needs.

We Use A Proven Process

Our dedicated team brings skill, talent, and passion to the construction of each newly designed or remodeled home. We maintain values forged from decades of on-the-ground experience. With open communication between vendors and homeowners, we can ensure a polished and refined finished product. Our team uses a proven design-build process–called the Paradigm Process–which has resulted in projects that meet clients’ needs, without the guesswork.


The Paradigm team has the expertise, network and creative strategy to construct your forever home. Below are some of our most often asked questions:

We work with each client individually alongside our architects and engineers to craft a highly personalized blueprint. As a result, the cost varies for each project. Factors that impact the cost of home building in Chevy Chase include location, supply and demand, construction materials, size, and design. We will address the project budget in the initial introduction meeting once we learn more about your goals. If you have a home design that you would like to take further, contact us today. 

Many sources of inspiration exist for home design. When was the last beautiful home you saw as you drove through a neighborhood? Consider what you liked most about it. Inspiration can also be found in architectural design books and magazines, which highlight various historic and modern designs. Pinterest features a multitude of beautiful images of homes, as well, to draw inspiration from.

Typically, a new home takes between six and nine months to build. This timeline may be longer depending on the complexity or size of the home. A general rule of thumb is that the more complex the home, the more time will be required to build or remodel it.

Paradigm Homes is a design-build firm. Design-build refers to working with a single firm to address the various tasks needed in the home design and build process, including architecture, interior design, and construction. Rather than work with three separate companies to build a home, many people would rather secure the services of one firm. Working with a single company in Chevy Chase streamlines the communication process and is considered a cost-effective solution.
