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 upon moving here from the Midwest, having spent the previous 25 years in custom home construction. He and his brother, Lyle, started working alongside their father in the 1940s. Dewey passed on the business to his two sons, David and Tom, and his son-in-law, Dana Carlen. Dana retired in 2014, leaving David and Tom to continue the business.
