I found VR Drafting on Thumbtack and Vicente was the best of all the architects that contacted me in terms of how he was active in responding to me and his rate. He offered the best rate I've found. He drew a plan for my enclosed patio (I already have a patio,) and wanted it to be enclosed. From the time we met up to completion of the plan took 2 weeks, 3 weeks at the city, and 2 more weeks for corrections. The correction process was a bit confusing because that was where he and my contract got into a bit of a conflict. Vicente wanted an engineer to sign off on the plan and that would have cost $400-$500 more, but my contractor rushed him to get it back, in which we received it back in 2 weeks with corrections minus the engineer stamp. We re-submitted it and got approved. To this day, I am unsure as to why Vicente recommended the engineer approval? During the process, Vicente drew up a plan for my bathroom conversion as well. The plan got approved instantly at the counter at the city. That plan also took about 2 weeks to draw. I thought Vicente was professional, knowledgeable, and did a good job in satisfying his client's needs. I thought the timeline was good, so please be sure to discuss your time frame with him. Additionally, I would have given Vicente a 5* if he and my contractor had gotten along. I am a first time homeowner and these projects are my first two projects; therefore, my view can be limited. However, I will contract Vicente again for future projects as he delivered a satisfactory job with a decent/negotiable price.
architect that is on top of his work and know his Bussiness and takes care of you I been using him for over 8 years and never had any problem I highley recomand him
1) The architect had us read about house designs and collect photos of houses and features we like, and talked with us at length to help us clarify our tastes and intentions for the house. 2) She visited potential builders with us and discussed the plans with them before they bid on the project. 3) She created a very intelligently designed house for our challenging situation: The lot is on a street with some very old houses, all of which have their own unique and definite characters; our house had to be compatible with the neighborhood and yet be true to our preferences and tastes. She accomplished this by using some of the same external materials and colors used by the other houses. The lot is extremely narrow with significant setbacks and, of course, we did not want to feel like we were living in a tunnel, so she varied the floor and ceiling heights and provided a great deal of light. Because of the lot's size, the house had to be small, but we didn't want to feel cooped up and claustrophobic; she addressed this with multiple patios and access to the outside from everywhere in the house with large windows and french doors. Ojai can be very hot in the summer, but we don't like air conditioning, so she studied the site's sun and shade and the slope of the land and placed windows strategically so as to use hot air's tendency to rise to suck in cool air from the lowest parts of the house, thereby giving us a small, cool breeze when we need it. She also put no windows on the hot side of the house. We like to spend time outdoors, but since the house takes up most of the lot, she had to find ways to create multiple, small outdoor spaces of what remained of the lot. No space went to waste. And we wanted privacy without being fenced in, despite being right on top of our new neighbors. She solved this problem by discretely positioning the windows and doors and strategically dedicating space for plantings. Our tastes favor, what seemed to us to be, disparate types: Japanese, Midwestern, California Mission. These had to be tastefully integrated. We like color, but we wanted the house to feel cozy and restful as well as happy and lively. By emphasizing natural materials, dark colors and hues below and bright ones higher up she successfully achieved both of these objectives. 4) During construction she worked closely with us and the builder (and at times with the subs) to assure plans were followed exactly. She upheld the integrity of the design and kept us informed on the implications of the decisions we were being asked to make during construction. She suggested specific material, fixture and color options. Before we engaged an architect, I had sketched many floor plans that I liked, but I must say that it would have been a serious mistake to build any of them. I know people who have built the house they designed and ended up dissatisfied in one respect or another. Professionals identify and solve problems you don't even know you have, and they do it before problems become costly headaches or irreparable mistakes. You are making a big financial and emotional investment when you build. I very strongly recommend finding a professional who actively listens to you, is effective at communicating their thoughts, and is not afraid to tell you where you may be making a mistake. In the end, you make the decisions, but it's best to make them with full knowledge and expert advice. The steps I've described above all turned out to be critical to our getting the "perfect jewel" we envisioned and keeping the project within budget.
I contacted Ted through Thumbtack on a California room addition/ balcony project. He was very quick to respond and was very willing to give any advice for the numerous questions I had. I eventually ended up going with the architect that works with our contractor regularly, even though Teds price was better, only for the convenience. I would recommend Ted to anyone who needs an architect.
After the first meeting and explaining to the architect what I wanted with a simple, yet functional patio cover, he took the concept and presented the plans, ready to have the city's approval. It is very nice to work with people that show skin the game.

His prices are competitive and he does his best not to incur additional costs. I would definitely work with Gaspar again.
