Clarum Homes is different than other home builders. Our difference is rooted in our core purpose: we work to transform the way you live.
This means a relentless commitment to lead the way in home building innovation. It means blending unsurpassed energy-efficient technology and sustainable building materials with homes that are gorgeously designed, healthy for occupants, and amazingly comfortable.
It also means creating a building process that’s enjoyable for everyone who is involved. We bend over backwards to provide exceptional client service, ongoing communication, and great listening skills. From our project managers to our on-site clean-up crew, our team is fully engaged in our work. This transforms the entire building experience into one of engagement, excitement, and enthusiasm.
Clarum Homes has been building exceptional custom homes in Northern California since 1994. Our pioneering dedication to sustainability and our early commitment to the green building movement quickly made Clarum Homes a leader in high-performance construction.
In 2002, we introduced the Enviro-Home™, our own passive home prototype. This home was a breakthrough for the entire home-building industry, incorporating a superbly-designed blend of innovative construction technologies, unsurpassed energy efficiency, and sustainable materials.
Clarum Homes has built over 1,000 eye-pleasing, high-performance homes in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Stanford, and other areas in Northern California. We use our decades of combined home building experience to design incredibly attractive homes, built to the highest standards of quality and innovation, all while providing impeccable customer service.
Clarum Homes continues to lead the way in building beautiful high-performance custom homes that minimize the use of resources, greatly reduce harmful effects on the environment, and create healthier and more comfortable living spaces. We specialize in modern and contemporary design.
Our high-performance custom homes provide substantial, ongoing savings on utility bills, with passive home technology resulting in up to 90% less energy consumption over conventional houses.
With global climate change and rising energy costs, there has never been a smarter time to build a high-performance, energy-efficient home. And, rest assured that Clarum Homes never sacrifices beautiful aesthetics – you can have the home of your dreams that’s built sustainably.
