Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

Good Value, High Quality, Efficient Work. We recently bought a house and called on Lifetime Remodeling to help us with a kitchen remodel and replacing the old roof. My wife and I are inevitably more difficult as clients than your average homeowner is, but we could not have been more impressed with Lifetime Remodeling. Firstly, their pricing knocked the competition out of the park, and the completeness and detail in their proposal and scope of work is like nothing I've seen before from contractors . As a home owner we were initially wary of having an additional external project manager on site, but Samuel and Matan from Lifetime Remodeling are absolutely fantastic: knowledgeable, reliable, resourceful and respectful of our role to design the project. The work itself was performed to a really high standard: the crew were excellently coordinated by Frank the foreman; they came when they were supposed to; and were clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to others.

Elder Jerez, designed and built an incredible landscape surrounding our home. Before beginning his drawings, he interviewed us to make sure his project would match our vision and lifestyle. Our landscape is very low maintenance and great on water conservation. In California, that is essential. The color scheme of the plants, rock, and hard scape matched perfectly with our house. Plus, the artistic design of the brick that lined the plants, and the brick patterns that were interspersed with the stamped concrete contributed to the great curb appeal. Elder and his talented crew are very professional, reliable, and are a pleasure to work with. What sets him apart from the typical landscape designer, is that he has an Architectural, Landscape, and Civil Engineering background. Therefore, from choosing the plants, understanding the soil and environmental conditions, to the technical designs, underground and street level, I consider him to be the on par with the highly upscale developers. At the same time, he is very good about working out a payment plan. I was so amazed with his beautiful work combined with his technical abilities. It was worth it.

I'm a new homeowner in Oakland and needed an engineers help with drafting my floorplan for bathroom addition permits. I decided to hire individual contractors without paying the fees of a General Contractor. Oh did I get lucky to have found Mike who not only provided excellent service in drafting but also offered his expertise on design and construction. Mike assisted with my brainstorming and troubleshooting process beyond what I had expected. He was knowledgeable about city regulations and offered sound advice on where to locate fixtures. I appreciate working with Mike to jumpstart the project and would highly recommend him for drafting and engineering services.

Excellent experience. We worked with Dane and Nastaran on a performing arts center in San Francisco and they went above and beyond to help us succeed. They even attended our company's special events. They not only came up with a creative design solution for the space, but really cared about our company and our vision. We hope to work with them again and recommend them to anybody looking for passionate, and dedicated professionals!

David is a caring and enthusiastic man and a delight to work with. He is very efficient and gets the job done quickly. I am grateful to him because, although I am an interior designer and certified color consultant, I do not have expertise in drawing to scale sketches of the spaces I'm hired to design. David helped me by doing those sketches and my clients were impressed. I gave him 4 stars only because some of the sketches needed to be redone because of miscommunication between us. I must admit though that I may have not been thoroughly clear re. measurements. David was always eager to do the best job possible, and I appreciated that immensely. Thank you David. Would hire again.

Paul was able to take on a somewhat difficult project and provide us with a design/plan that suited our needs which ultimately delivered us with a valuable final product. This final product was aesthetically and functionally designed and so proved its value as it was sold on the first day of the Open House sale.

We hired Zephyr Arch to get the architectural plans and city permits done for our home (room addition project) They were very prompt in answering all of our questions and took into account our suggestions while coming up with the design. They also took care of the structural engineering requirement for our room addition project and got us the permits from city of Sunnyvale promptly. They helped us getting our HOA approval by answering some followup questions and suggested alternate options.Overall we are one happy client ! :) Thanks for the great job guys!

I hired Adam to design our home's renovation. We want to turn our one story Victorian into a two story by digging out the basement and raising the house. Adam did a great job listening to us and included all the things we wanted in the new floorplans. He respected the old architecture of our home and neighborhood while incorporating our very modern aesthetic into the design. We're excited to see his plans come to life.

Christian Bratt is very versed in his abilities. One showing that he is capable of design and engineering the complete process for homes in and around the Lake Tahoe area. Quick response via email and phone call show that he wants to make sure the client or contractor questions or concerns are heard and responded to as quickly as possible to keep each entity working towards the goal of completing the project with the time frame. His outgoing personality makes him a fun guy to work with and i would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great design engineer in the Lake Tahoe area. Jeff Bahrke

Mike is a fantastic contractor. He is responsive, reliable, honest trustworthy and the list goes on... His work is exceptional. Mike has a keen eye for detail and design which helped me greatly in my decision process. The first home project Mike did for us was back in 2014. From that point on - he continues to be my go-to contractor. I highly recommend Argon Construction!

I had Mary mock up a 3D model of a kitchen and bath remodel we did at the start of the year. She was very quick, and the model was exactly what we were looking for to understand what the design would look like, and to pull plans off of. She provided several views and a short video walkthrough of the space in 3D, and then accompanying plans and sections. She also went back and forth with us to edit the model/design to get exactly what we wanted. If I ever do any other work to my house, I will contact her.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
