After over two years of research on building our new custom home, we chose to go with Paragon Homes.
Such a big project comes with a lot of challenges and financial consideration. Frank Murray from Paragon Homes ‘the owner’ took our dream and idea and made it possible.
Paragon took charge of our design, custom plan including all of the engineering on the structure, the mechanical engineering and all of the other aspect of the design of our new custom home.
With Paragon Homes management systems and tendering process, we did save big time on the total construction cost. Frank was also on site every day managing and supervising all the trades and vendors and ensuring quality control and all inspections.
We did have some issues with a few trades but Frank took charge and resolved the problems.
We also purchased Paragon Home package kit due to the high efficiency of their system and more specifically the R-32 wall system and the overall quality of the material included in the kit.
We are certainly happy we did as we ended up with a home that will cost very little to run.
Without any hesitation, we would recommend to anyone wishing to build their dream home to Paragon.
Horrible experience! We hired frank murray back in 2013 as we were building our new Bonneville home; we hired His team to manage our new build as I was 6+ months into my pregnancy, we thought (and were promissed) and "key in hand" type of a service... we basically paid him over $20k ++ dor absolutly nothing; we had to continuously follow-up with our trades, our home was supposed to be delivered i. september at the latest; upper level of our home was "ready" only on November 27th... by January 2014 all the post-dated cheques we had given Mr. Murray were cashed however our home was not even close to being finished. I have birth to our son on December 21st and by the first week of January 2014 I was booking cobtractors to complete the jobs they had started and not finished (such as primodial things like a shower...) ... I tried contacting Mr. Murray to no avail; I then sent him a written notice that his work was still not done and that we were vary dissapoi ted with his services; he responded with a formal letter from his lawer basically stating that his portion of the deal was done and to sue him if we were not happy!! Not exactly what we were expecting from a person we gave $20k++ to complete our new home project... we also found out later that Mr. Murray had received "kick-backs" from certain trades he had strongly recommended as reliable ... extremely dissapoiting to say the least... to follow-up to Mr. Murray's response: I presume that this is how Mr.Murray deals with all negative feedback; no accountability what so ever. For the record all our trades completed the work however WE had to schedule/manage them ourselves. We have even called back a few of the trades to complete more jobs for us. We also found out that Mr. murray was trying to bid on jobs for Bonneville instead of discussing deficiencies on our behalf (as he was supposed to). We did not mention in our review that our house had deficiencies DUE to paragon; what we said and stand by is that $20k++ was taken from us for "management" but we did over half of the work and were basically told to get lost when we vocalized our disappointment. We stand bad our review (we would give this company 5 rotten tomatoes if that option was available).
TOTALLY false allegations and situation. This situation was brought on by 2 factors. The first one was caused by Bonneville Home (modular home)where they would not come back on site to finish their deficiencies as too many threats were received by clients. The second one is for the same reason. We cancel our mandate (Construction Management services)as we were receiving concrete threats from clients. The other trades that had to finish the home were also refusing to finish the project for the same reason. We are dealing here with customers that could not be satisfied in the way they were dealing with us and the other trades. As for receiving kick backs I challenge the clients to prove their allegations. Paragon Homes has not obtained its reputation since 1988 by serving our clients this way. This is certainly an unfortunate experience for both ways.

In the summer of 2015 my wife and I decided to build our dream log home. We visited quite a few companies but it was clear to us that Frank Murray from Paragon Homes knew this industry extremely well. Frank took care of everything, our plans and designs, the entire construction management including all of the red tape in obtaining permits, engineering, septic engineering, surveying and grading plans.
We also purchased our home package-kit (log home kit) from Paragon. Their system and the quality of all the materials were really outstanding. Paragon does not manufacture logs nor timber frame but they purchase the materials directly from their vendors. Everything is assembled on site with the Paragon log home system and details.
We are very pleased with our home and would not hesitate in recommending Paragon Homes.

Thank you Mrs. Vidack.
