Father and son team, My experience has been excellent I can say that professionalism and attention to detail have impressed me immensely. They took the time to not just build my addition but to explain and help in designing my addition. Navigating the permissions and regulations so I did not have to was fantastic.

Steve responded quickly to my inquiry regarding putting in a wall mounted dog door. He arrived on the designated day and time; even arriving a few minutes early. He professionally went to work installing my very expensive “Hale” dog door. He protected my kitchen nook floor and outside area where work was to done. His attention to detail and cleanup was great. The dog door needed to be placed under a window, and he was able, with confidence, adjust electrical wires in order to accommodate the door. He is very friendly and his price for this project was very reasonable. I will definitely use him again for other projects that I need done. I am very happy with his work. My photo of this door came out horizontal, instead of vertical, but hopefully it shows how well Steve installed my double wall Hale dog door.

Fady has designed 3 projects for me now. He was not only very detail oriented but a complete professional throughout the build. My city in particular is very difficult to work with. I'm convinced had I not chosen Fady, my build would have not been completed on time. Thanks Fady!

Mana Design Build just finished remodeling all 3 of our bathrooms. We love them and our new bathrooms. Our master bath was a complete mess and needed everything from new fixtures to new placement of shower, sink and toilet! Mazi (the owner) and Angela (the designer) was so knowledgeable of the latest designs, fixtures and really listened to what I wanted in my bathroom. Based on my input, she brought out fabrics, tile, granite samples all to my home. I didn't need to do any of the running around! She and Mazi met with us every step of the way! Demolition took only one day! He then reconfigured all the electrical and plumbing and started building my bathroom from scratch. The end result is a super functional, up-to-date master bathroom! Mazi then conquered our other 2 bathrooms. They needed a facelift: new tile, vanities, toilets, paint, the works! One of the benefits of working with Mana Design is that they are a design and build company. They provided all the materials, made all the necessary appointments for permits with the city of Lake Forest, and cleaned up the "remodel" mess every day before leaving! I am super pleased with my bathrooms! The work is clean and meticulous, and I know if we ever had an issue with something they would be out immediately to fix it. We look forward to our next project (remodel kitchen) with Mana Design Build!

We did a lot of research to find the right contractor to build us a free-standing recreation room. We actually hired a different contractor first, simply based on having the lowest price. What a terrible decision. We quickly came to regret it, and fired that contractor as soon as we could — a costly misjudgment. Even though Owl Construction’s cost was a bit more, though very reasonable, we knew he was the right contractor for us. Guy Hazan of Owl Construction is fantastic. He was so easy to work with. He’s a compassionate listener, and kept us informed and at ease through the entire process. I don’t know much about construction, and had never undergone a project of this size, but Guy was there every step of the way. He explained everything very clearly and addressed any questions or concerns we had from day one to the completion of the project. I also must mention the Amazing Anesta. Anesta is a gem to this company. She kept the communication light and easy, and got the job done. She is responsive, dependable, organized and kind. The final building is stunning. The contractors did such a great job all around. To think what a nightmare it would have been to have continued with that original contractor who bullied and didn’t listen. Owl Construction was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Ray Hawkins, was effective and efficient in the design of my remodel in 2005 and since that time in all aspects of design, restructure on my home. His Design and development company single-handly saved me on numerous occasion. He is professional and knowledgable on all aspects in managing designs. In referring others, I only work with Ray and all have found him to be trustworth and effective. There is not a month that goes by that someone is not stopping by home and inquiring for who did the design on my remodel. In this day and age of design and structuring it is key that you have a professional, experience, licensed and bonded designer who can do it all. This is especially key for women and the aging. Ray Hawkins and group has never failed.

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.

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.

Full rip-out-and-replace kitchen remodel with custom cabinetry, counters, electrical, plumbing, appliances, external door/window replacements and opening up walls to adjoining rooms. Ephraim bid competitively compared to two other companies we contacted and when selected, he led a top-quality crew to complete a complex job in our home. Ephraim was adept at listening to our wants and needs and was able to take our design ideas and offer suggestions about how to execute with available materials including how much different options would cost. Good communication was always provided on paper with regard to cost changes and design plans. Our new kitchen is beautiful and gets constant compliments on the quality and design. We will definitely be calling Galvin Designer Builders for the next project!

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.
