I highly recommend using CIH design for all of your design projects. Shelly goes above and beyond to impress her clients, and her work is outstanding. I have received so many compliments on my house after my project was complete. CIH Design was very professional, and working with Carl & Shelly was both fun and easy. Above all, they exceeded all of my expectations, making my dream home a reality.

    We recently purchased a home and needed some work done to it. We contacted Reiko and she came to the house for a consultation. She was on time and listened to our needs and wants, while providing us with great design ideas. We were very impressed, and would absolutely consider her again for any future design services.

    Rick took fantastic pictures of the house I listed! He was very flexible on times which made it a super good experience with my client as well (since coordination with more than 3 people almost seems impossible) My clients loved the photos and I got even more good feedback at every showing that the photos are excellent! I do photography my self and would highly recommend Rick as a photographer any time! It was a pleasure working with him and I will definitely use him again!

    After building a brand new deluxe kitchen in our Kailua house we hired Ross and Ross to handle all phases of our complete North Shore beach house renovation project. From a gorgeous stainless steel cable deck with ipe wood, new rustic kitchen with acid stained concrete counter tops and custom teak cabinets, to a new deluxe master suite with custom built in bathroom cabinets, concrete floors, plumbing and a concrete and river walk stone walk-in double shower. What I like about working with Kevin is his creativity, flexibility, and attention to detail. As an accomplished woodcrafter, his other strength are in design, construction integrity, building knowledge and project continuity. He was fair in pricing but exceeded in workmanship. He managed his subs well and delivered beyond my expectations. I would highly reccomend Ross and Ross.

      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.
