Choosing the Right Architect for your Home

The Clawson Difference:

Business and sales coaches often ask:
"What is the Value Proposition?"
"What do you bring to the table?"
"What do you do that is different?"

While Clawson Architects has a portfolio of beautiful projects—new home, renovation, and addition success stories— it can be difficult for the homeowner searching for an architect to discern why Clawson Architects may be the best choice for them.

So what is the difference?  Below is our Value Proposition

Feature: Clawson Architects has evidence that in post-construction appraisals as well as post-construction sales, our clients' homes deliver a Return on Investment (ROI) ranging from 22% - 200%.

Advantage:  Your investment in proper drawings and a thoughtful design by Clawson Architects will reap you financial rewards.

Benefit: You will love how the light shines on the faces of your family and friends when they enter the room. You will feel comfortable and joyful as you take in the views created by our thoughtful placement of windows into the landscape.  Your daily life will be easier as we will have addressed your lifestyle.  And, in the end, if you decide to sell the family home, you will realize the financial benefits of having built something that was thoughtful and enduring.

Feature: Marvin has an extraordinary ability to draw...on-demand, to scale, and often upside down (to make it easier for the clients to follow his thought process and ideas).

Advantage: This allows Marvin to explore multiple concepts with the owners during a sketch session, quickly moving towards a solution that resonates with them.

Benefits: Owners see the design possibilities in real time. They see their ideas incorporated as Marvin listens, responds, and draws with them. No time is wasted with the architect going back to the office, getting on their computer, and dreaming up schemes devoid of feedback of the end user. There is no sitting around and waiting to see if the architect understood what you wanted. Clawson Architects clients see perspectives and details  explained with three dimensional freehand drawings—on the spot!

Watch Marvin during an initial sketching session "adding curb appeal".


This same process is used in the field if unforeseen conditions arise:  a meeting is held and Marvin whips out his magic pencil, problem-solving and communicating/sharing the possible solutions as the owner, contractor and architect work together to resolve the issues.

Feature: We have extensive experience and knowledge of period-home construction, renovations, and additions.

Advantage: With over 450 built projects and counting, we are not learning on your job. When you work with Clawson Architects, you benefit from their tried and true process, harnessing the power of 60+ years of the partners' combined experience in high-end residential design experience and their connections in the industry.  Each project has the attention of the partners and their very qualified supporting team.

Benefit: You will not have to worry.  We have the experience necessary to deliver a successful project, creating a home with you that tells the story of your life with details that matter, are enduring, authentically represent your life and your needs, and bring you joy.

A favorable ROI is just one of many reasons to consider Clawson Architects as your architect in a time when you need an investment you can count on.
