Stan O’Brien doesn’t just build homes. He builds homes better. Stan began Paradime Construction 15 years ago after receiving dual degrees from Clemson in Architecture and Construction Science. As a boy growing up in Charleston, Stan was inspired by the historic architecture surrounding him to pursue a career in home building.
Stan sees the home as a complete system, each part working together to create a comfortable and healthy environment for its occupants. It is this mindset that keeps him on the cutting edge of design and building techniques.
Paradime Construction is an on-your-lot custom home builder. Unlike other on-your-lot builders, you don’t have to choose from a standard set of floorplans. Bring your own floorplan or take advantage of their free home design service to build a completely unique home for you and your family.
Stan is a pioneer in the Midland’s housing industry, building the first Energy Star rated home in 2003 and the first Certified High Performance Home in 2012. Certified High Performance Homes or CHiP Homes are built to National Green Building Standards and verified by an independent third party. Owners of CHiP homes enjoy lower than standard utility payments, tighter construction and more environmentally friendly home features than found in homes just built to code.
For Paradime Construction, building environmentally friendly just makes basic sense. Cutting back on the utility costs of home ownership makes owning a home more affordable for a more people and saves on the cost of construction waste. Stan stays educated on new advances in technology and techniques in order to always build a better home.
Buyers can check the efficiency of their Paradime Construction home with a Home Energy Rating System or HERS number that measures energy savings of the home. The lower the HERS score, the more efficient the home. This figure will help homeowners anticipate utility costs and be used as a selling point should they need to move in the future.
Stan stays extremely active in the Home Builders Association of Greater Columbia and will serve as Chairman of the Green Building Council in 2014. For more information on Paradime Construction, visit
