Wow, thanks Jim.  When anyone asks me about Paradigm, I’ll certainly tell them that if I were going to build a house again, I wouldn’t even consider another builder.  Every step of the way you guys have kept your word and all aspects of the build were completed with pride, incredible craftsmanship and a commitment to a superb final product.  You and Matt make
a great team.

Matt and Jim are the BESTquality workmanship, very competitive pricing, on budget and schedule, and “can do” customer service. I can honestly say they are the best.

Matt and Jim, and their subcontractors, are wonderful people to work with. They are reliable, punctual, and only allow high quality workmanship. Our phone calls were always returned within the day. The subcontractors arrived on schedule and remained until the job was done. The work was completed within the contracted time and within the perimeters of the specified budget. We were impressed with the integrity and character of this company and would highly recommend it to anyone.

While house hunting in Eagle we were intrigued by a home being built by Paradigm Construction. The following day we met Jim and Matt and their crew from Paradigm. They spent a great deal of time showing us around the property and responding to our questions. On our third day in Eagle we bought our beautiful home from Paradigm. Working with Jim and Matt has been a pleasure. They answered every question we had about our home and when any repairs or adjustments were needed they came immediately. Aside from building a beautiful home for us they are people of integrity who we trust and can count on in the present and future. We love our home and value the connection we have with Paradigm Construction.

Our home was a very custom design. Paradigm’s input regarding changes and recommendations made the whole process easy. The personal attention we received was very appreciated. We were always impressed that one or both of the Paradigm Construction owners were on the jobsite every single day, and never hesitated to meet with us at our convenience or take our calls. Paradigm’s hands on approach made a very positive difference. Their contractors were all of very high quality and very easy to meet and work with as well. It has been nice to know that even after our home was finished, the owners of Paradigm were always available to take care of any question or concern we had.

I have worked with Matt and Jim, owners of Paradigm Construction for several years now as a subcontractor. These guys are top of the line builders and are the best two guys to work with. They are very knowledgeable and know how to build a house from the ground up themselves, which is rare in this day and age. They are always early to pay me for the work I do and are always extremely fair. They are always willing to help out in any way they can, even hands-on out in the trenches if needed. I’ve noticed a high level of professionalism and pride in every project they do. I see only good things in the future from these guys for themselves and the community, and see them as an asset to this city in building high quality, nice looking properties for years to come. I can only hope I will be on the team for the long haul. It has been my pleasure to work for Paradigm Construction and I am sure their other subcontractors would agree.

This letter is in recommendation for two men I hold in high regard, James Larkin and Matt Knickrehm of Paradigm Construction. I have worked with them fairly steady since September of 2004. Theirs jobs are always run very professionally, using qualified subs, keeping their jobs neat and holding schedules. Something always important to subcontractors is being paid on time and Paradigm has always been prompt on paying their subs on time. Probably the most notable thing I could say about Jim and Matt is they are two decent and honest men.

We have worked with Paradigm over the course of the last 4 1/2 years on several projects. The projects have ranged from large scale town home developments such as the Nez Perce town home project to several large custom built homes in the Eagle, Idaho area. We have also worked with them in subdivision projects such as pool houses and street lighting. We are currently working with Paradigm on Pine Tree Subdivision, a large scale town home project on Maple Grove road in Boise. Paradigm has been one of our best customers over the years to work with and they have always been timely with their project payments. We feel fortunate to a part of their construction team.
