When Chris and his father Tom built an 800sq.ft. detatched two story structure on my property in Costa Mesa. From the get go they were timely and well versed in the art of construction. The job came in on time and at the proposed budget. The overall experience was very good and I would use them again if they'd travel to Hawaii to work for me.

Fady was very helpful, positive, knowledgable and went the whole 9 yards to make sure everything went as planned and on time. He was always there when we needed him, and found every way possible to design what we wanted while saving us money. He took our project as if it was his own. Stellar job. We highly recommend the FT group and we are blessed to have found him

I did whole house remodeling with Mana Design and Mazi helped me from the day first to last day. He is very knowledgeable and his team are very friendly. He is a cabinetry expert and he educated us pertains to cabinet type and finishes. We love every corner of home. He picked one by one our appliances and plumbing, countertop, sound system even our new tv. One thing I should highlighted is that Mazi is very organized and accurate. He gave us an schedule and sticked to it until last day. He gave us 3D views of different parts of our home that helps us a lot in understanding the changes and color choice. We strongly recommend them to anybody who afraid from remodeling. I can assure you working with them is very pleasant. Thanks to Mana design for their fantastic job they did. -Ali

I literally handed Lucas a project and said that I needed this in two days. He produced the drawings. The City we were submitting to then made changes. I texted Lucas and he made the changes within a day. The City made more changes, none of which were ever discussed prior to my hiring Lucas, and he produced the drawings two days later and we were approved last Friday.

Our kitchen and bathroom renovation went so smoothly!! The owner, Guy, has a great eye for design and space planning so we just followed his lead because his ideas were so much better than ours. And at the end of it all, the execution was unmatched. This is definitely a company that cares about their clients. There was always somebody there to answer the phone, we had guys cell phone number in case we had any questions, and his staff is always pleasant and helpful. I would definitely hire him again.

Blair has been great. We are lucky to be able to work with someone so professional and responsive. You will not find such a responsive architect on his level without spending 4-6x the price. Thank you!

I have worked with many building designers and Reza is unique in that he listens to his clients and tries to incorporate their ideas into a design that is practical and functional. He has an easygoing personality, accommodates changes, and has many contacts in the building trades. He obtained all of the necessary permits for me and helped legalize an unpermitted addition. I will definitely use his services again.

Had a difficult siding project, too small for the big shops to touch. Not only did John do a wonderful job, he also added a few little architectural details that really make the project pop.

Kuo was referred to me by a friend who had previously worked with him on multiple projects. Kuo most certainly lived up to the expectations. I asked him for a simple yet abstract design that had stumped me and several other designers that I had hired. He had a very prompt response when I reached out to him. He very timely drew up some designs that were absolutely stunning. In addition, he was meticulous and understanding of my vision. Overall, I would definitely recommend him to colleagues.

Diane has done a whole home remodel for my family in the early 1990s and a 1000 sq. foot separate building on a different property in about 2012. She is a good listener when it comes to understanding the clients needs. Her understanding of how a space will be used is clearly reflected in her modern designs. She has a tremendous attention to modern detail, and supervised the construction to ensure compliance with her design. I was very pleased with the finished results on both projects and enjoy living in these spaces. She has excellent skills on state of the art architectural CAD software that allows her to create very detailed plans and specifications. This is critical during both the bid and construction phases. She has a depth of knowledge regarding building materials and finishes that help to create a coherent aesthetic design. She is LEED certified and sustainable development is clearly part of her philosophy, Her services include construction observation as part of the fee and it is well worth it. She is on site making sure the construction is per specification and correctly detailed. I can't emphasize how important that is. She is a true professional and a joy to work with. I recommend her without hesitation.

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.
