2021 Southern Living Showcase Home

Tours Open Oct 27-Dec 12

Paragon Building Group is Delighted to be Building and Designing our 2021 Southern Living Showcase Home.

Southern Living Showcase Home​s

As a member of the Southern Living Custom Builder program, we are building a 2021 Southern Living Showcase Home in Riverstone Estates, Pittsboro, NC. This home is the first Southern Living Showcase Home to be built in the Triangle. And, this home is a first-and-only-of-its-kind Universal Design home for the whole country. Our Showcase Home will be ready for you to visit and enjoy this coming Fall 2021

Our Southern Living Showcase Home is special: it is the first to be entirely Universal Design. This means every aspect of the home is accessible to guests and family. 

Building a custom home involves a lot of planning, designing, imagining. Creating a Showcase Home is no different. Every step of the way is dreamed up by our team and then approved by Southern Living. Our team of experts are bringing to life something really special.

Every aspect of this home is not only modern, high-design, but it is also fully inclusive and accessible. Complete with an elevator and a no-touch water bottle filling station, our showcase home is the pinnacle of thoughtful and welcoming.

When you enter this space, you will feel welcome and like we designed this home for you, because we did.  You will be surrounded by nature, and surrounded by beauty and the most beautiful home we could imagine.

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating inclusion, modern southern design and this marvel of hospitality in Fall 2021:

Fulford Flooring

Fulford’s Antiques was established in 1967 and has been a family owned and operated business for over 50 years. We deal in some of the finest antiques available today, as well as Antique Heart Pine flooring. Breathing new life into old wood is what we do. Enhancing the patinas with our processes brings out colors that cannot be matched by new wood. Over the years, Fulfords has expanded to include hardwood flooring, custom cabinets, exposed beams, architectural elements, custom furniture, reclaimed brick and custom made reproduction antique beds, as well as offering quality antique repair and restoration. We have become a diversified family business. Fulford Flooring works with wood from buildings constructed in the 1700s, 1800s, and early 1900s. Often these older buildings were made with a quality of lumber that is no longer available. Fulfords has the privilege of giving new life to the materials in these older buildings slated for demolition.
