Design/Build

Pop Top Additions

Paradigm Building Group is the Pop Top leader in the building industry. We have established a revolutionary program and process, which can provide creative home solutions. Sometimes, the best way to add space to your home is with a straight forward addition that essentially extends your home’s footprint, and lets you build “outward” on your lot. For other families, they are finding our Pop Top is the best solution, because they would rather build “upward” not having a lot which awards them the ability to go outward.

Pop Top is a type of home remodeling that let’s you improve your house by adding new floors or levels with square footage. They can enhance outdated properties by adding open floor plans, master suites, new bedrooms and bathrooms, an office, entertainment spaces or anything else today’s modern family desires to improve their lifestyle.

Questions & Answers

A Custom Home is a home uniquely designed for the client creating a home that is truly designed with the client’s style and finish in mind. The plans for a Custom Home are typically created from scratch or reinvented from an existing floor plan.

A portfolio home is a home that comes from the builder’s portfolio of floor plans. The plans can be tweaked a little and you have the ability in most cases to design the finishes to your style and finishes.

The development process for a custom home and portfolio home are very similar when you choose to tear down and build a new home on your lot.

We have found no real benefit in hiring the architect before or separate from the builder. Working with an external architectural firm prior to hiring the builder typically presents some challenges, mainly helping clients with design and cost control. We have on occasion worked with outside architectural firms as long as we are hired from the onset to work along side the architect and engineers. Paradigm stands behind the belief that you are more likely to stay within budget having the builder on your team from the beginning and having a better product at the completion of construction.

Yes, in this case you would get a construction loan. A construction loan acts very similar to a regular mortgage. The bank will take the future value of the home based on the project design and scope. They will fund you based on the equity and current value of your home and lot. The bank will work with us directly to pay us draw payments based on certain phase of work for the contract value. Once the construction is complete, the construction loan is rolled up into a final mortgage.  To learn more, please give us a call and we can set you up with one of our preferred lenders so you can learn more about the financing of your 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. The Construction Phase is when the fun begins… we begin the actual work on your new home. The Pre-Construction takes about 3 to 6 months depending on your local county jurisdictions permitting time and requirements. The Construction process for a Custom Home takes about 8 to 16 months, depending on the size of the home.
