Working with Dennis was great and very stress free! We hired Dennis to put up a re-purposed Barn wood wall in our house and he listened to exactly how I wanted the wall to look. My spouse and I went to a local dealer and picked out the old barn wood we wanted and the colors we wanted to utilize, took them home and washed them the day before Dennis arrived. When Dennis got there we explained most of the wood was too wide and we wanted it trimmed down in width. We talked about our plan and go things going. My spouse stripped and cut the wood down to size with Dennis' table saw while Dennis applied them to the wall. They got a real good rhythm going and two hours later my wall was complete and beautiful! I really appreciate Dennis working with us on time a days of when we could get the project done and being open to the way we wanted it to look. I am very happy with the work and would hesitate to hire Dennis again for any job. We plan to use Dennis when we finish our basement and would recommend his work to anyone! Give him a call , he can do just about anything!

We contacted Jeremy on a Wednesday and he came out the next day to see what we needed. His dad Steve and brother Matt did the install the following Saturday (very short notice) but they came through. Everyone we met was very professional and friendly, not to mention hard working. Due the plumbing problems from the initial build of this house it was necessary to reroute the delivery pipes into the wall, these guys were here almost 10 hours getting the new tub installed. We felt bad about that but they got it done and Matt came back on Sunday to pick up the old tub. We are very impressed with their work ethics and are passing this company on to other friends. We highly recommend this company. Thanks guys.

    We hired Wolverine Construction to do a flooring project in our home and were impressed throughout the process. Steffan listened to what we wanted, without trying to upsell the work. He gave a very competitive estimate and that price did not change. The estimated time was accurate and he was always on time. He was always there when he said he would be there. Steffan was courteous and professional in his interaction with our family. My wife and I are impressed with the work he did and the price. We have already discussed future projects with him.

    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.
