I had a great experience with Ben! He got to know my project, a basement built-out, really well and made several improvements to our drawings that pushed us through the permit office. He picked up the project from a former architect without concern (something not all architects will do) as he understand the amount of work we'd already put in and didn't want to loose. He improved upon all of it and was the critical factor to jump start our project. He's personable, smart, fair, professional and very communicative. I am grateful to him for his work for us and I would absolutely recommend him.

We hired David to create CAD drawings for plans we needed to get approved from the city. David came and met our contractor and made suggestions and observations that were helpful. It is obvious he has training in architecture and is knowledgeable about minimum requirements for city code. Drawings were approved by the city and we are happy with the results. I would not hesitate to hire David again.

Eli was recommended to me by my contractor. We were remodeling our home and were in need of his services. He was very prompt and we can tell he was skilled at remodeling and home renovation. He brought up good points and ideas that we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. He was clear, concise, and was very patient with our questions and concerns. He worked well with our contractor and the City, which is an entire ordeal in itself. He even went out of his way to meet with the City for questions and concerns they had. We couldn't have asked for a better engineer and drafter on our team! Thank you, Eli!

Margaret took over a project in turmoil and turned it around immediately. Her architectural and CAD skills enabled us to meet strict city timelines and guidelines with ease. We would recommend using Oak View Designs.

Needed a set of 2-D CAD drawings to be generated from hand sketches on paper. Zack worked very quickly and communicated well regarding changes, corrections, and clarifications. I expect to use Zack's Prototyping on additional CAD projects in the future.

Jonesy is very professional but also personable and understanding of people's needs, situations, and how things interact with one another, when dealing with layouts. For an event, there are so many details to be aware of and he thinks about all of them! Jonesy has so many years of experience doing event management and event layouts, I would use his services for any event where I want things to run smoothly.

Bahman did a good job on our plans for our garage conversion; the contractor said he really likes the plans, they were very detailed and precise. He started by coming over to our house for a couple hours to measure many things and take notes. After that he provided a few example floor plans, and my wife and I sent back ideas for what we had in mind. After agreeing on a floorplan, he handled all the communication with the city until the plans were approved (it took a few rounds, as expected). Even after the plans were approved, during construction a few issues came up and he handled printing out updated versions of drawings and sometimes came to the city planning office to make sure they would get approved. This was a long process but Bahman stuck with us all the way.

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.
