Our History

Hanson-Carlen Architecture & Construction is a family owned business that has built and remodeled homes in the Spokane area for 50 years.

Dewey Hanson started the business in 1976 when he moved his family here from the Midwest. Prior to 1976, he and his brother Lyle worked alongside of their father in the 1940's and 1950's, spending 25 years in custom home building.  When Dewey retired, the business was passed on to his two sons, David and Tom (retired 2019), and his son-in-law, Dana Carlen (retired 2014).
