National Award Winning High-Performance Whole House Remodel in Raleigh, NC
Finding Paradise on Picardy
We were delighted to have the opportunity to take this quaint 1960's brick ranch and transform it into a Whole House Remodeled Green Certified Home with an open floor plan. We had no idea that this project would go on to win the 2013 National Green Certified Project of the Year !
The spectacular granite countertops featured in the kitchen and bathrooms served as the design palette used to create a wonderfully harmonious balance of muted tones throughout the home in this whole house renovation project.
Beautiful natural hardwoods with a No Volatile Organic Compond (VOC) clear coat finish, next generation porcelain tile, and No VOC carpet and paints combine to create a healthy and light-filled living environment.
The home has been equipped with the latest in energy efficient amenities including updated EPA EnergyStar Qualified electrical fixtures and appliances, EPA WaterSense rated toilets and plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, upgraded insulation and air sealing measures, and rain water harvesting.
The carefully orchestrated design elements and focus on eco-conscious features make this home a fresh and smartly appointed Home Paradise. Daylight. Quiet. Energy Efficient. Healthy. Low Maintenance. Aesthetics. It’s a complete transformation.

STAR Award presented to Paradise Found Construction by Home Builders Association
– Best Bathroom $30-35k
Recently, the Remodelers Council, formed by the Home Builders Association of Raleigh-Wake County, awarded its yearly STAR Awards, which showcase Triangle achievements in remodeling. The Council was created to help improve professionalism among remodeling contractors and to provide information to the public about selecting a contractor. The awards program recognizes local remodeling companies for their work during the previous year, in such categories as Best Kitchen or Best Outdoor Living.
This year, we are honored to be the recipient of the STAR Award for Best Bathroom $30K to $35K.
The project for which we earned the recognition was for a couple in Holly Springs NC. They love their home but their master bath was outdated, and they wanted to upgrade to more of a spa bathroom look and feel.
After consulting with the couple, we came up with a new bathroom design. We would remove their old fixtures, including the jacuzzi, the shower, vanity, lighting and tile, and we’d replace it all with a more modern, user friendly setting. We also designed their new setup to have more usable space. We added more shower space by combining the area of the old shower and tub. Additional space was created for accessories in the shower, as well as out, via a more modern vanity.
The overall feel of the new master bath was completed with mirrors, special lighting, and tiles in a warm, rich tone.

STAR Awards nominees are judged using the following criteria: workmanship, detailing, quality of materials used, overall appearance, floor plan and design, lighting, special touches, overall customer service and responsiveness and overall customer satisfaction.
