Taking a Selfie While Providing Quality @ an Affordable Price

5-24-14            John Glenn, a famous astronaut and senator from Ohio, was attributed to have been quoted saying, “As I hurtled through space, one thought kept crossing my mind- every part of this rocket was supplied by the lowest bidder.”

Every person who has an intention of building a house now or in the near future should ask themselves, “Do I want my house to be built using material supplied and labor provided by the lowest bidder? Do I want to enjoy my house or have it become a bête noire, detested and avoided to the point of wanting to sell it?”

Paradise Homes, one of Florida’s East Coast’s premier custom home builders attempts to educate people as to the benefits of the quality construction that they provide.

Paradise Homes Refuses to Build in a Potemkin Village

4-26-14The old quote that “history is doomed to repeat itself”, is again proving true today. In light of current events in Crimea, a peninsula in Southern Ukraine which was recently annexed by Russia, we see parallels to a similar conflict in the late 18th century when Russia took possession of Crimea from the Ottoman Empire.

In 1787, Russia’s ruler Catherine II, aka Catherine the Great, visited Southern Ukraine and Crimea with her court and several foreign ambassadors. During the war, the region was devastated and the newly appointed governor, Grigory Potemkin, was charged with the major task of rebuilding and bringing in Russian settlers. As legend has it, Grigory Potemkin, attempting to make things look better than they really were, assembled “Portable Villages”, located on the banks of the Dnieper River. Allegedly, as soon as the barge carrying Catherine II arrived, Potemkin’s soldiers dressed up as happy peasants would appear. Once the barge left, the village was disassembled and rebuilt downstream overnight.

The phrase “Potemkin Village” is used today to describe an elaborate display used to conceal something dilapidated, shoddy or unpleasant in order to deceive and impress others. History was again repeated recently with the “2014 Winter Olympics”, held in Sochi, Russia. The sub-par accommodations in Sochi were described as the latest reincarnation of a Potemkin Village. The initial splendid appearance of high level hotels and facilities were later shown to be deceptive and hiding behind a façade of completed new construction.

Paradise Homes, one of Florida’s East Coast’s premier one of a kind custom home builders has a history of constantly repeating itself in providing and delivering homes of distinction incorporating high quality construction and workmanship while paying special attention to detail in both the interior and exterior segments, enhancing the beauty of the home.

History is continuously repeating itself coupling Paradise Homes with a client base that is both educated and knowledgeable carrying a clear perception, awareness and understanding of their requirements requisite and essential to their home buying experience. Paradise Homes attracts the sophisticated home buyer inherent in their capacity to differentiate between an elite builder and others that don’t reach its level. Paradise Homes is the intelligent choice.

Paradise Homes does not build in an atmosphere of a “Potemkin Village”. They do not build behind a façade of a well furnished and appointed model drawing people into their fold and then supplying a house that doesn’t measure up and is not commensurate to their model. Paradise Homes does not show models as models per se but as a starting point for interaction with the client portraying a glimpse into the standards, workmanship and superior quality they provide. The finished product that is provided will not fall in quality from the models that are shown.

Paradise Found

2-07-2014 ParadiseMuch has been said and written about the English poet John Milton and his two famous works, “Paradise Lost” and “Paradise Regained”.  Paradise Lost depicts the Biblical story of the fall of man portraying the creation of Adam and Eve and their temptation of and eventual partaking of the Forbidden Fruit.  For this action they were punished by losing their place and were expelled from the Garden of Eden, also called Paradise.

John Milton, in his worthy sequel, “Paradise Regained”, emphasizes the concept of “Reversals” whereby overcoming and dismissing temptations can revoke and annul the loss of Paradise, rise to the highest pinnacle and participate in the Fruit of Paradise.

Florida is known to be a haven for those who seek a warmer climate, affordable luxury, and a lifestyle to suit everyone’s needs.

Paradise Homes- The Maestro of Construction Paying Attention to Detail

 maestro a           Paradise Homes, a true leader in the “built to order” or “truly custom home” industry has been a pivotal cause in raising the bar and standards of builders on Florida’s Treasure Coast causing them to address higher expectations from potential clients and to increase the standard features they provide. It is obvious and evident that other builders with grand aspirations and with grand visions of duplicating Paradise Homes’ success have copied and mimicked its marketing methods and advertising techniques and it is well received by Paradise Homes as it inches the bar up.

            Other builders in their efforts to imitate Paradise Homes have diluted and weakened the concept of a custom home. A true custom home as quoted from Wikipedia is “A one-of-a-kind home that is designed for a specific client and for a particular location”. “Custom homes afford consumers the opportunity to control layout, lot size, and accessibility”. Many builders who claim to build custom homes will provide a choice of floor plans and will allow minor changes and upgrades to the house but rarely to the structure. This is not custom home building! Paradise Homes is a true custom home builder. Paradise Homes provides the opportunity to start from scratch by meeting with one of its architects and designers, together with a member of its construction department to navigate your dream home room by room compiling the final design and floor plan. Paradise Homes will design and build a true custom home on any available lot including Cross Creek Lake Estates in Sebastian. All homes built by Paradise Homes are of the highest quality with affordable pricing.

            Unlike other builders who offer either a Mediterranean or Key West style house, Paradise Homes has the ability to build the design according to the desires of the client. In addition to Mediterranean and Key West styles, Paradise Homes, with its worldly management team is planning, building and offering designs based upon architecture from Bermuda and the West Indies, as well as contemporary and European plans some with elements of the famous “Bauhaus” design known for its appeal in warm climates.

            Paradise Homes, known for its quality construction and workmanship, pays special attention to the detail in both interior and exterior segments enhancing the beauty of the home. Paradise Homes in its quest to continuously raise the bar and seeking to cause other builders to elevate their standards and quality still strives to improve upon its own and reach higher levels of performance. Paradise Homes is the Maestro of Construction!

            Auturo Tuscanini (1867-1957), an Italian Maestro, was considered by many of his peers to be the greatest conductor of his era. He was renowned for his perfectionism, intensity, his phenomenal ear for orchestral detail and sonority, together with his photographic memory, which allowed him to correct errors in orchestral parts unnoticed by his colleagues.

 maestro b           Toscanini had a Biographer who would interview him periodically over the years as part of a major book he was writing. One evening, he called Toscanini and told him that he would be in town the next night, and asked if he could come to the house to interview him. Toscanini answered that he would be doing something special that would require absolute concentration and he did not want to be interrupted. He told the man not to come. “Maestro”, the Biographer asked, “What are you doing that’s so special?” Toscanini replied, “A concert is being played overseas. I used to be the conductor of that symphony orchestra, but I could not be there this year. So I am going to listen over shortwave radio, and hear how the substitute conductor leads the orchestra. I don’t want any interruptions whatsoever”.

            “Maestro, it would be my greatest pleasure to watch how you listen to a concert played by an orchestra that you used to lead. I promise, I won’t say anything. I’ll sit on the other side of the room, quietly.”

            “You promise to be perfectly quiet?” Toscanini asked.

            “Yes”.

            “Then you can come”.

            The next night, the Biographer came and sat quietly at one side of the room while Toscanini sat at the other side and listened to the concert, which lasted almost an hour. Finally, when it ended, the Biographer remarked, “Wow, wasn’t that magnificent?”

            Toscanini responded, “Not really”.

            “Why not?”

            “There were supposed to be 120 musicians, including 15 violins. Only 14 of them showed up”.

            The Biographer thought Toscanini was joking. How could he know from 4000 miles away, over a shortwave radio, that one of the violinists had not played? The biographer had his doubts, but didn’t’ want to contradict the Maestro, so he left quietly.

            The next morning, though, he was overwhelmed by curiosity and had to find out for himself, so he called the Concert Hall overseas, asked for the Music Director, and inquired as to how many musicians were supposed to have been in the performance the night before, and how many actually played. The Director told him that they were supposed to have 120 musicians, including 15 violinists, but only 14 showed up.

            The Biographer was amazed! He returned to Toscanini and said, “Sir, I owe you an apology. I thought you were just making it up the other night. But please, tell me, how could you know that one violinist was missing?”

            “There is a great difference between you and me,” Toscanini answered. “You are a part of the audience and to the audience everything sounds wonderful. But I am the conductor, and the conductor has to know every note of music that has to be played. When I realized that certain notes were not being played, I knew without a doubt that one of the violinists was missing”.

            The people at Paradise Homes understand and comprehend the difference between a quality home and one that is not or one that has been built cutting corners where the audience was deceived. Maybe, to other builders it doesn’t matter, but to the Maestro, the conductor, and the management of the Paradise Homes Symphony, who know where every piece belongs and how every house should be built- to them it makes a difference! Paradise Homes is building and operating at the highest level while still trying to improve!
