Thumbtack thank you for the service you provide ... it was helpful. I selected an architect named John Beam from the contacts you provided. John Beam is Hammer Heads, LLC at and 317-345-4699. Mr. Beam was very professional, easy to work with, delivered drawings on time, offered ideas I had not considered, made changes quickly to the "final set" of drawings, was moderately priced and drove 45 minutes to my home for the initial consultation. All-in-all, I was very satisfied with his work and would recommend John without hesitation and with complete confidence.
Jason Burk saved us thousands of dollars in rebuilding costs and fines from the code enforcement department on our DIY project. We are very grateful to him. We decided to rebuild our roof line on our fixer upper house. It had a roof with several peaks and valleys, and an unstoppable leak. So before we re-shingled it we asked friends of the family to rebuild the roof line so that it became one long peak with 2 rectangular slopes. We drew up our sketches and obtained our county building permits. Our friends of the family were experienced builders. So we decided to be our own general contractors and let them build it as they thought best. We did not realize that anything we put on the permit sketches had to be done to the letter or we would be liable for violations and fines and could be hauled into court. So when the builders decided to attach the new rafters to the old ones that were 6 inches below them in a couple of spots it made sense to us. This would keep our walls from becoming unstable and cracking the ceiling during the building process. The permit inspector felt otherwise and called it a violation. We had 45 days to fix it. We had already finished the roof on top and would have had to tear apart most of our new roof to change this. The inspector would not budge in letting us just put in extra supports from the bottom. He would only accept it if we built it exactly to their code. It didn’t matter that it was well built and strong. They had their code and any variation from that code was a violation. The only way out was to have an architect analyze it and verify its safety. So we went on line and found Jason. He returned our call within 12 hours and was available to come out and inspect our project within 2 days. He didn’t mind making weekend or evening calls for our convenience. He analyzed it and said it was built very well. He did recommend one adjustment which we did without tearing apart anything. Then he sent a letter within 2 days to the code enforcement explaining to them that he had verified its safety. They accepted it and we were rescued from tearing down our beautiful new roof. Thank you Jason Burk!! He also had very reasonable rates. We did ask Jason about the negative response that was written about him on this website. He said it was a partner of someone who had hired him, who didn’t know how to contact him. She thought if she wrote a negative response that he would contact her. It worked, but Thumbtack would not let her retract it even though she tried several times.
Excellent! Ryan is professional, knowledgeable and punctual. He made suggestions without being pushy, and was always open to new ideas. If you're looking for an architect, Ryan is the one to call.
