A Fresh Start in Hurley, NY

We really enjoyed working for Josh and Murhpy on their first time home purchase of a contemporary shell in Hurley NY. From design to completion, we took a 900 sf shell and transformed it into a beautiful one bedroom energy efficient home with a sprawling 1000sf cedar deck overlooking their amazing property.

We started with framing interior partitions, adding new pella windows, new electric, plumbing, and a hybrid insulation package consisting of spray foam, fiberglass and roxul. It was outfitted with an on demand hot water heater and high efficient mini splits to accommodate both heat and air conditioning. A new kitchen, woodstove and a walk in custom subway tile shower were some of the highlights of this modest house. An open floor plan combined with an expansive deck and natural light from the many windows and sliders gives the feeling of a much larger house.


Paragon Building Group was absolutely incredible to work with! Paul & Sarkis provided wonderful communication, talked through our entire project from start to finish and prepared a full, thorough proposal for our review prior to beginning the job. They remained on schedule and very, very close to budget throughout! We are thrilled with our new home! Our project was to completely finish the interior of a pre-existing (but far from complete) home structure. We moved doors and windows, had all power and water run, and completely finished all interior details to our liking. We are very pleased with the balance of craftsmanship, timeliness, and value (staying within our tight budget). During the initial conversations, Paul and Sarkis helped us find ways to stay within our budget and also offered suggestions on items that we should not cut corners on. They helped us source budget-friendly wood floors, helped guide us on appropriate trim and details for our style, worked on finding eco-friendly windows, insulation, and mini-split unit for heat and air. While their team was executing the work we agreed upon, they were all friendly and kept a very clean work site, even in the thick of construction. They had no problem with us dropping in on occasion to check on progress and make decisions along the way. All workers on site were friendly, professional, and always busy. The sub-contractors involved with our project were also professional and worked quickly and efficiently. Overall, we are very, very happy with our outcome and would absolutely, without a doubt, hire Paragon Building Group for any future construction or addition projects. We are very grateful!
