McDougal Clouse is an integrated design-build company. Based in Dallas since 2008, the firm specializes in residential architecture, new builds, and large-scale additions. Our goal is to create truly custom homes that reflect the unique personality of the owners—homes with careful consideration to function and your patterns of living. Our designs are timeless and pay homage to established architectural styles while bringing a fresh interpretation. We value materials and views that are carefully curated and sensitive to surrounding landscape and your neighborhood. We design and build spaces to gather and places for rest. We design and build homes people love.

Whether you decide to build your home on a lot you own—or on one of our lots—we want a seamless design-build experience for you and your family. Learn more about our process so you can see exactly how we design and build homes people love.


With a design-build process, we provide architectural design and construction services as a single contract with our homeowners. This single point of contact for both design and construction is the McDougal Clouse design-build distinction. Our roles as architectural designer and homebuilder are integrated, resulting in a unified flow of work from concept to completion. United from the onset of the project, our integrated team readily works to successfully complete a project faster. Our design-build concept is a highly collaborative, fully integrated process that is built on trust, mutual respect, teamwork, innovation and creative problem solving. 


Our principals are committed to delivering a design-build experience that's as extraordinary as the families for whom we build.

Our clients say the kindest things...

Kendra and Scott’s attention to detail when designing and building our new home is unmatched. During the initial consultation and design phases, Kendra and Scott both said they design and build houses as though they were their own homes. Now that our house is being built, it is readily apparent that they mean what they say. Kendra is constantly monitoring the construction to make sure it is not only being built pursuant to the plans, but also making suggestions along the way that show she truly wants our house to be the perfect home for our family. Kendra and Scott are also incredibly personable. We appreciated their open, honest communication style from the get go, and it was clear they cared about getting to know us and our family during the design process. We now consider them to be friends. They are wonderful at what they do and are all around wonderful people! We have truly enjoyed our experience and would not hesitate to recommend Kendra and Scott.
