Keri made our first-time experience with an architect so simple and easy. She explained the entire process in a supportive manner making the thought of renovating our older home not so overwhelming. She was able to apply her keen eye, creativity and expertise to what we thought would be out of reach, in order to stay within the original foot-print of our home. Keri was always available over email and on the phone as well to answer any questions we had along the way. She came to our house several times and really seemed to listen to our concerns all while providing helpful feedback. We found her approachable, sincere, and honest. She would honestly explain what would and wouldn't work in such a way that didn't make us feel silly for asking. My kids even loved her and still ask when she will be coming back!!! Keri absolutely exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her services to anyone contemplating a remodel/renovation project.

Humberto was easy to work with and reasonably priced. He recognized our needs and offered pricing options for the different levels of service that he was able to provide. We picked what worked for us and are very happy with the end product. He is knowledgeable and developed a great set of drawings for our renovation.

Designed a beautiful renovation to my bathrooms and oversaw the entire project. It was a wonderful and easy experience. We didn't have a large budget, but in working with RE-Architecting we were able to design exactly the look we had imagined. The owners, Ashley and Jamie, made the process enjoyable and we would definitely work with them again.

We hired Thomas Bakalars to assist us in applying for special permit to change a flower shop (retail services) into general office space. Thomas reached out right away and scheduled a time to meet our team directly at the site. He was professional and well educated on exactly what needed to be done. We did meet with other architects and Thomas was definitely the right one for the job. We highly recommend Thomas and and his team. They finished the job on our very tight time frame and we look forward to working with Thomas in the future.

Laurence is a great listener and very efficient in his work. He met and beat all of his deadlines on our remodel/addition/New construction projects. We also appreciated that he kept nudging us forward when we got stalled and he offered his expertise in person, over the phone and via email. Best of all, he's a genuinely nice guy. We highly recommend Laurence Malsky for anyone!

Our house was a 1955 ranch-style house with 3 bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, and living/dining room that we moved into in 1995. We had been looking to add a second bathroom and had originally worked with an architect from NH to do a modest front and rear bump out to give us more room to fit in a second bathroom. This architect had to withdraw from the job and recommended David Kinsella of TBC. David initially made some modest changes to the plan that made sense. After some further discussion, in which my wife and I raised the possibility of a larger scale project to modernize the style of the house, David developed a plan that essentially rebuilt the house except for our previously remodeled kitchen and original foundation. This new plan converted our house into modern design with a more open floor plan, completely new roof line, loft space, re-finished basement (and the second bathroom). David was able to fit this into an only slightly expanded footprint in order to comply with town regulations. Throughout the process, David kept our budget in mind and would typically present different price options for us to choose from to allow us to come up with a reasonable comprise between price with style. In addition TBC worked with the town to make sure our design stayed within our zoning and conservation restrictions. After deciding to go ahead with the project, we interviewed several contractors and decided that TBC brought us the best value for our money and would also allow David to oversee the project as needed. We started the project in June 2011 and completed the project in May 2012. The project did take several months longer than expected, but did stay on budget. The major problem that occurred that delayed the project was that in the summer of 2011, the original subcontracted framers were being sent to other jobs by their boss even though TBC was told they would be coming to our job. Hence, instead of working full time on our job, they were working less than half time. Eventually TBC had to fire them and find a new contractor to step in. At the time we felt that TBC should have replaced them sooner, but perhaps this was difficult due to contractual obligations. (We also found this first group of framers were slobs who did not have much regard for the fact that we were still living in the house.) By the end of summer 2011, the house was not completely framed and roofed and number of rain storms (including hurricane Irene) slowed down progress further. In mid-October we were still living in the part of the house and we agreed at this point that we would move out to allow for a more efficient work flow. From this point construction generally proceeded ahead, except for a few delays do to weather and scheduling conflicts that arose for other subcontractors, no doubt due to the significant delay caused by the no-show framers. In the end the house is beautiful and works for us better than we could have imagined. While the house has not expanded much in terms of square feet, the open floor plan and high ceiling/roof line combined with increased natural lighting gives a much more expansive feeling inside. From the curb, the house has modern angular green metal roof with cedar siding and one has to look hard to find any resemblance to the original house. At the completion of of the project, TBC was very responsive to completing punch-list items and other minor issues that arose. While my wife and I certainly had stressful times during the renovation (and certainly did a lot of second guessing our decision to renovate rather than move), we always felt that David had a personal interest in getting the job done correctly and making sure that we were happy in the end. In that regard, David was very accessible by email or phone before, during, and after the work. In summary, David Kinsella provided the creativity to design a renovation plan that was truly transforming for our house and TBC was then able to see the plan through to successful completion.

David was prompt, professional and courteous from beginning to end. His work is, most importantly accurate but also delivered BEFORE schedule. I will definitely call on him again and recommend him without reservation. He measured and photographed a three story dwelling and then drew architectural floor plans for my professional use.

I recently needed an architect for a 12' X 30' addition I search the Internet and found Tiffany Souza who did an excellent job preparing a set of drawings that I needed for the building inspector. I would recommend Tiffany Souza to anybody looking for someone that is professional and knowledgeable and will do the work in a shot timeframe. I look forward to using Tiffany Souza on my next project.

We had an excellent experience with Stephanie Metz as architect of our house. She was considerate and patient throughout the process, which was important because we had input from several family members who will live there. She remained conscious of our goals and budget and managed to balance the two while providing us with a design everyone loved. I recommend her and would work with her again.

Shannon has helped us with some initial concepts for potential improvements to our Cape-style home, which may lead to a final plan and construction later. She is very responsive and makes a genuine effort to understand our goals and needs. Her work is creative and professional, and she draws on good experience. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Ben Atlas is a very competent, humble and amiable architect. He makes himself readily available via phone/text/telephone beyond just "business hours", to answer questions, provide advice or check on both on-going projects as well as prospective new projects. He will go out of his way, literally in fact, to not only satisfy a client's needs, but to surpass them. And all this without charging excessive fees.

Boston Architects created very high-quality stair plans for me that were approved by the local inspectors right away. They are responsive, great listeners and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them for any project, from a commercial design to a smaller residential need such as mine.

    Our experience with Colonial Home Design was great from start to finish. Midway through the design phase, I had to travel for business. Ed was very accommodating of my time, and arranged for online meetings around my schedule. This kept my husband & I in the loop, and the process moving along nicely. All in all, we'd recommend Ed to anyone. The color renderings were a huge help to visualize our addition before construction started.

    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.
