Luis helped us with a master bedroom and bathroom remodel. He was on time with drawings and we passes the permit on the same day. He provided excellent drawings and communication was great as well. Definitely would hire him again in the future and recommend him to family and friends.

I needed some architectural plans to be altered in CAD for an interior design project and submitted a request on Thumbtack. Unfortunately I did not select Vicente, I chose a provider who was geographically closer to me. My project was on a tight timeline and I was assured the other pro would meet my deadline. Two days later and after a serious lapse in communication from the other pro with my presentation rapidly approaching I contacted Vicente in a late night phone call…he promptly answered the phone and came to my rescue…sending snapshots of his progress along the way so I knew the work was being done. About an hour later the first draft came through from the other pro (8 hours after it was promised to be delivered). I contacted Vicente and let him know he wasn't going to need to pull a late nighter. He was very gracious and refused to allow me to pay him. I will definitely use Vicente in the future, he was very professional, willing to go way above and beyond, understanding the situation and stepping in with confidence. He is an OUTSTANDING person in every way and I can't thank him enough for his compassion and professionalism!

I am an interior designer andI contacted Nina to help me incorporate my furniture layouts into the architect's CAD drawings. She was immediately responsive and accommodating. I met with her at her studio and spent a few lovely hours collaborating on the drawings. She had some wonderful suggestions, and was so fast and proficient. I am happy to give her the highest recommendation. Ellen Kessler

Cristian was amazing. I needed to convert the space above my garage to an ADU... he did the drawings, worked with the plan check, worked with the inspector ... it was a seamless process with Cristian. He is incredibly reliable, honest and trustworthy. I highly recommend him.

I had the pleasure of working with Reza Nasr when I hired him through Thumbtack to produce a set of CAD construction documents for a bedroom/bath/deck. He is detailed, efficient, delivers on time and knows what is required to acquire an LADBS permit. He is easy and great to work and I would recommend him to anyone...a 5 star rating!

3-24-2018 To whom it may concern; I am a General Contractor/Designer who works with the same Vectorworks “Design Program” as Juan Herrera who started working with me in 2009. He is “Super-Fast” with the program so Juan gets the 3D and general plan package together then I can “tweak” the project to my liking and still stay within my budget limitations. He’s a great “team player”. On a personal note, Juan & I have become good friend over the (almost 10) years we have been working together. He is a man who (unlike many others today) retains a creditable “moral compass”. He has proven to be a dependable man who tries his best to do what he says he will do, when he says he will do it.

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.
