After checking out a few Architects, we decided to hire the Tommasini Design Group to help us with our remodel in South Lake Tahoe. What I really like about Mike is that he is a very "Hands On" guy and is fully involved in all aspects of the project. He gave us some great suggestions and followed that with some beautiful renditions of what our house would look like. We were also impressed with how knowledgeable he is about construction and all the code requirements. The plans he presented to us were very detailed and complete. Even the Building Official in SLT commented how well it was done and we were able to get our permit without any problem at all. It was a pleasure working with him and we highly recommend him for any design work you need done. Thanks Mike for a job well done!

Design and architectural drawings for home in California coastal zone. Many complements re: design from neighbors and potential residents. Frank is an extremely effective communicator and helped us through a fairly stringent review committee and guiding us through the necessary procedures to get approval for the plans. Frank is a very creative person , and his design work and knowledge of architecture is excellent I recommend Frank wholeheartedly for anyone in search of a competent and easy-to-work-with architect.

Bryan is both a licensed architect and certified inspector, so he has a broad understanding of not just codes and design, but construction as well. I like the way he helps me by explaining the big picture. He tells me what is covered and what is not, and is flexible with his services. Mike

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.
