Custom Home Builder in Highlands
Everyone wants to live in the home of their dreams. You want a home that’s not only beautifully designed and matches your lifestyle, but keeps you safe and comfortable. It can be a challenge to find the perfect pre-built home, especially in Northern Virginia’s competitive housing market. Even if you personally comb through every home listing on the market, you might find a lot of great homes, but not the one home that has all the details and features you desire. If you can’t find the perfect pre-built home, why not build your own?

The Paradigm Process
The many years we have been in the industry has helped us refine the planning and construction process so that we can better meet your needs. The Paradigm Process gives you an extensive blueprint of what you can expect throughout each phase so there are no surprises. We have found that this approach not only helps set expectations in the forefront, but enhances communication throughout your building project. The custom home process is broken in down into two phases: Pre-Construction and Construction.
The Pre-Construction Phase includes the design, finish selections, final pricing and permit submissions. Depending on your project’s design, your local jurisdictions permitting time, and your requirements, pre-construction can take about 3 to 6 months.
During this phase, we meet with you to establish your goals. This first meeting will be oriented toward gaining a better understanding of one another. Your ambitions for your custom home, your budget, your aesthetic tastes, and your design philosophy will all help us to begin this process with the right foot forward. We will guide you through the entire design process, and by the time we’re ready to break ground, you will have a granular understanding of the costs, time, and design elements associated with your new home.
The Construction Phase is when the fun begins. During this phase, we complete the actual work on your project. The Construction process for a Custom Home takes about 8 to 16 months, depending on the size of the home and if you are completing a teardown and rebuild.
Our expert team of builders and contractors will work hard to quickly complete the project according to your exact specifications. They have the experience and knowledge necessary to carry out the project to perfection and the flexibility to make any needed adjustments as the project progresses.
Our customer-oriented process and attention to detail is what sets Paradigm Homes apart from other design/build firms. You are our number-one priority all the way from our first meeting to our check-ins after construction is complete.
