Welcome Home.

        Paragon Building Group is the Triangle area’s only Southern Living Custom Home Builder. We specialize in cozy, modern-southern homes. Whether building an intimate cottage or a large luxury estate, our designs are crafted with your current and future needs and dreams always leading the way. Design is a conversation, and we love to talk design. We are honored to become a part of our clients’ life stories, as designers, builders and friends.

In addition to our style specialties, we are also well-versed in thoughtful design that encourages inclusion and long-term value: Universal Design, Aging-in-Place, Multigenerational Living, and Green Building. We believe inclusion means everyone feels at home: visitors, family, friends, and you over time. Home should be a place that is designed to always be there for you through all of life’s changes and all of life’s magic.

Let’s set the scene for the next chapter of your life’s story. Whenever you are ready, reach out any time. We are always here for you, and always thrilled to hear your vision and make it a reality, for life.

Storytelling & Building Community

Stories are the heart of what we do, and at the heart of who we are.

As a family business with decades and generations of history in building throughout North Carolina, stories matter a lot to us. The stories we tell ourselves and others are how we know who we are, as people, as a business, as a community. Woven into the fabric of any individual family’s story, are also the narratives of place and community. The story of a home can be so, so beautiful and rich with meaning: a home is the story of family, of history, and a home is a story of a potential future.

Building community is also at the heart of what we do, as we are always building to Universal Design principles.

We have partnered with local disabled and autistic writers, with community and Universal Design in mind, to explore the history, future and philosophy of Universal Design and how the progress of inclusion is rooted in the history of Raleigh, NC. We have also written some stories ourselves as a family, as a building group, as members of the community we are hoping to build through thoughtful, inclusive design. We are always happy to share our knowledge, our decades of expertise and experience as custom home builders.

Nestled in among sprawling farmland, and not far from downtown Raleigh, NC, this beautiful, modern farmhouse is filled with warm details, an open floor-plan, and hand-hewn restored wood elements that inspire the imagination. Let us take you on a tour complete with birdwatching and neighborhood horses. Want to take a look around? Read more….

Everyone, even the most able-bodied person, passes through different phases in their life: childhood, periods of temporary illness, injury and old age. Universal Design involves creating spaces and products so that everything can be used by the widest range of people possible. The history of Universal Design is also the history of disability rights, and accommodation. While a diversity of abilities and a wide spectrum of disabilities have always been a part of the human experience, the way we as a society approach difference in a positive, helpful manner is surprisingly new. Thus, the history of Universal Design is a relatively recent one that is tied to the modern increase in human quality of life.  Want to know about the History of Universal Design? Read more….
