We purchased a home that needed substantial updating. Basically, it was a tear-down but we wanted to save it. The floor plan, which consisted of multiple additions over many years, resulted in an extremely awkward layout. After gutting the house we realized we needed to turn to a designer to help with the interior layout and finishes. Bobbi of studio b. elements, was up enthusiastically up for the challenge! She quickly ascertained our style and implemented a plan and that surpassed anything we could have dreamed of. Although we met her in her office, we appreciated the convenience of the web meetings she offers. She was able to walk us through our design and link us to various websites to show the proposed finishes. Bobbi works hard to create custom designs tailored for each individual client. Her architectural background gaves her an advantage over other designers. She was able to reconfigure our layout, create custom built-ins and a cohesive design that surpassed the quality of work provided by any other designer I have ever worked with. Plus, she really cares about her clients. I wholeheartedly recommend Bobbi and studio b. elements!

When we bought our first house two years ago, we knew it needed tons of work, but had no idea how or where to start. Matt and his partner Gavin saved the day. They transformed a beat-up 1905 Victorian (which some people thought should be torn down) into a beautiful, liveable home in less than 8 weeks. We had no idea how to tackle a project like this, and felt like we could trust them completely with the things we didn't understand. The price was fair, and we couldn't believe how fast they did it all. They took on almost everything, including building new walls, ripping up the old floor, running new plumbing and electrical, redoing the bathroom, repairing the siding, installing new doors and windows, and installing cabinets. We only needed a few other subcontractors (painters, sheetrockers, hardwood floor specialists), which they helped us manage. Of course, we still have lots more projects in mind. When we just did some more remodeling this spring, we didn't choose Matt--and we regret it. The project ended up far outside our timeline and budget (7 months!) as we tried to manage it all ourselves. Looking forward to having Matt back again to help us with future work.

Sam is not only an amazing architect and super talented, but he is an amazing person overall! I couldn't imagine working with another architect. He really knows his stuff and makes your project a beeeze with his expertise and knowledge of the field. His expertise in Spanish and Mediterranean architecture sets him a part from the rest. You really need that when building a home. He is extremely easy to work with and really a pleasure. if we had to do this all over again I would pick Sam in a heartbeat. You will be doing yourself a favor by choosing Adam Holroyd as your architect and designer.

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.
