No project is ever too small. Whether it is a new portico and stoop for your home, renovations to an existing bathroom and kitchen or a new home from the ground up, The Clawson Team of licensed professional architects understand details and scale which will insure that the investment in your home is well designed and executed for long term value.
Marvin and René and the Clawson Team work for you. We are not in the business of selling products or taking a percentage of what you purchase or a cut from the contractor you select. Clawson Architects will do their best to educate you and provide you with information so you can make informed decisions and achieve your goals. The size and scope your project determines which steps will overlap and which may not even occur. For example, Existing Conditions for an interior renovation that doesn’t include an addition would not require any site work or surveys, while a new home on a vacant lot would require a site and soil analysis.
