Making Paragon

Our Story

Brandon Jensen started Paragon Homes with a desire to build the high-end homes of people’s dreams. Too often, he heard stories of people getting taken advantage of by their builder, hating the home-building process, and going way out of the original scope. To ensure a harmonious relationship and a smooth home building process, they developed the Paragon Plan. So what’s different about this compared to other builders? LOTS of front-end time, work, and energy spent by the Paragon Team to capture the full vision and scope of their clients. When expectations are properly addressed upfront, both Paragon and their clients are set up for success! This, paired with their 20+ years of experience in the construction industry, is why Paragon Homes is considered one of the premier home builders in Utah.

Brandon Jensen

Brandon Jensen

General Contractor
Brandon started in construction at 17 years old. Over the last 20+ years, he has gained valuable experience that has translated into a better home building and remodeling process for his clients. Anyone who knows him, describes him as one of the most hardworking, detail-oriented, and passionate people that they know. His attention to detail, expectation for quality, and impressive people skills are just a few of the reasons why people love working with him. A few of his hobbies include working out, finding new plants for his yard, traveling, reading, fishing, and discovering new things to challenge himself.

Gordon Jensen

General Contractor
After spending decades working in IT, Gordon retired and jumped into the construction trade with his son, Brandon. Gordon brings years of technology experience. He has been an integral part in pushing Paragon to adopt and implement this technology, improving overall productivity and efficiency. Gordon’s personality, smile, and can-do attitude are a great asset to Paragon and our clients.

Paragon Process

Initial Meeting

We meet with you to discuss and capture your vision. We will also assess your starting point and walk you through our process.

Establish the team

Based upon where you’re starting from, we determine your needs and put together the team (architect, engineers, designers, etc.).


Site Evaluation

We walk through the site and flag anything that could alter construction—we assess the site for constructability.

Create a Detailed Scope

Based upon the plans and your vision, we put together a detailed scope of work. This helps us ensure that we are meeting your expectations while detailing out any costs that may come up.


Project Estimate

Based upon the final scope, we obtain hard bids for each line item. This part of the process creates a very transparent cost analysis.

Establish Project Schedule

Before construction begins, we create a schedule that will be updated throughout the construction process.


With a clear idea of expectations, schedule, and budget, we are finally ready to break ground!


Frequently Asked Questions

How much is my project going to cost?

The cost of building a home can vary greatly depending on what you are looking for. We can walk you through this during the Paragon Process and put together a detailed estimate to help you understand the cost.

How long is my project going to take?

The typical construction process takes 12-24 months; however, just like cost, the timeline of building a home is something that can depend on numerous factors. Once the plans and scope have been established, we will put together a project timeline and keep you updated along the way.
