Jeremy Sparks has done drywall work for me - he's good and FAST! He did a raised bed garden box - he loves to work with the customer on the design ideas. For friends, he did some amazing landscaping work. So, ask him about whatever you need - not just the big remodeling or construction jobs.

Scott built a corner pergola in our yard and I was very impressed with the outstanding service I received. He listened to my ideas for what I envisioned and assisted in the design phase of the process to ensure I had the right design to match. The work was completed very quickly. I am extremely pleased with the final result! The pergola has been a great addition to our back yard. I will definitely be using his services again and would not hesitate in recommending Scott to others.

Was hired to apply trim work in a newly drywalled room as well build customized casing around the window and door frame. The work was completed quickly and effeciently. He offered me options on colors and types of material used. When he came to give an estimate I also had a piece of flooring that needed laid. He completed that the same day so he could start on trim work quickly. When he was finished with the work he cleaned up any mess that was made during the job. I am very satisfied with the work that was done. I love my new room!! Would highly recommend.

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.
