We hired Ransford to put a deck on the back of our house. Ransford was a pleasure to work with. He met with us to initially get our thoughts on our project and immediately sketched up a rough view of the deck attached to the house and a detailed breakdown of the work that was needed including plans, inspections, materials and removal of old stairs. We made some modifications and drew up an agreement. We made one change to the project after we started which was to make the deck wider. Ransford was able to accomodate us and work with our surveyor and the town of Needham to amend the plans. He and his crew worked through some extremely hot days and built our deck quickly and professionally. We were thrilled with his attention to detail and how much work he put in to building a strong foundation and framing. He also made some suggestions on the layout of the pattern on the decking which we really appreciate. We love the deck. We would not hesitate to recommend Ransford to anyone who asks and we have already made plans to have him do other work on our house.

    I have never worked with an interior designer before so I had no clue what to expect or if I could even afford one. I was looking for ideas for a floor plan for my bathroom reno. Lidia came to my house and explained the process in detail. For $500.00 she and her assistant came in and took measurements of my bathroom. From there she came up with 4 different floor plans. After I chose the one I liked the best,she gave me permit drawings for the town. Lidea then contacted me and we went shopping for tile ideas. There were a couple of floor tiles that she picked out that I wasn't really fond of until she coordinated it with an accent tile. WOW! I fell in love with it. She definitely has a talent with design. I would recommend her services to anyone.

    I ended up scaling back my plan and not needing Jeanne's services, but she was responsive when contacted, came out within a few days, had several helpful and creative suggestions. She even did some research for me that was also very helpful (in case I decide to do an attic conversion down the line).

    Keith Dmytryck has performed work at my property on 3 separate occasions over the past decade. Most recently, Keith and his crew have completed a screened/glass porch room on the east side of my residence. The result is a beautiful addition which enhances the exterior of the building as well as providing a lovely place to sit and enjoy the breezes from Duxbury Bay. My experience with Keith and his construction co. has been very positive on all 3 occasions. Keith is creative, detail oriented, has excellent business skills and is completely reliable. He is very good about keeping the client informed and up to date on scheduling and costs. I am happy to recommend Keith and his construction company to any and all who might be considering engaging his services. For those in the Duxbury area, please feel free to come by 29 Massasoit Road – at the corner of Marshall Street on Standish Shore - and view the porch addition to my house which Keith has just completed.

He also understands market rate housing on the single and multifamily scale bringing his expertise to both. His California vibe is easy to work with and open to all ideas. If you're looking for a residential architect Steve has a wide background of styles, scale and types.

    We met Umberto back in 2006 when we started to plan our remodeling project. He had been recommended to us by one of our neighbors. He took the time, week after week, to sit down with us and listen to our ideas and “needs”, trying to combine pre-existing structures, practical aspects and a new modern design. When he presented us with his first drafts, he already had several variations in mind, giving us the chance to explore various options. He was always open to suggestions and special requests. During the permit process, he collaborated closely with our land surveyor and structural engineer and represented us during hearings in front of the zoning board and building department. Umberto really facilitated the whole project, always keeping track of the necessary steps and communicating the progress. Unfortunately, it turned out that remodeling was far more expensive than we had thought, and despite “value engineering”, a complete new construction would be cheaper and more energy efficient. Aware of our concepts and “special needs”, Umberto was able to come up with a completely different plan for a brand new construction in record time. Limited to the pre-existing foot print, we had to make some concessions, but Umberto talked us through the options and made adjustments along the way. “Our” house could not have been built without Umberto’s diligent work ethic, his aptitude to listen and incorporate ideas and concepts into solid architectural designs, his communication skills and his flexibility to allow for last minute changes. Thank you Umberto for all your help. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Ben worked patiently to find the right answers for the right design for my limited space, integrating most important features I was hoping for. we were able to create adjustments to my condo that added comfort and value. Ben is very careful to plan within the budget I had for my project.

    What a wonderful sense of design and creativity. It was a pleasure working with Lyndsey. She listens carefully and suggests great ideas that just seem to have released my own creativity. She helped design my beautiful kitchen using CAD and I also own some of her very unique pottery. She was always available when an idea struck me and quickly drew up new plans when I changed my mind. I highly recommend working with Lyndsey on any creative project and I will be sure to call her back when we are ready to put the addition on my house. Thank you Lyndsey!

    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.

    Greg helped to create drawings and specs for two brand new Sub Zero Ice Cream shops at 495 Amherst Street, Nashua, NH and 295 D.W. Hwy., Nashua. This is a brand new franchise in New England and he did a terrific job piecing together what was needed by corporate, the City of Nashua and us, the owners. We would highly recommend Greg and his team. We plan to use him as we grow the Sub Zero Franchise across New England!

    We wanted to expand the footprint of our 1997 Boxford colonial home. The expansion was to include a large, new family room with a fireplace, an enlargement of our kitchen with relocation of appliances, and the creation of a third garage bay over which a new home office would be located. The challenge was that wetlands restrictions imposed challenges. Sisia had to consider these restrictions as she began drafting a plan. Throughout this process, Sisia demonstrated not only her ability to listen carefully to us and our ideas, but exhibited her own excellent design judgement by improving upon those ideas and suggesting things we had not thought of at all. Sisia's mastery of drawing and mechanicals made for an excellent and very accurate package. She spent a good deal of time taking measurements and checking them against original building plans. Not every architect does this, as it is time consuming. But anyone who has gone through a building experience with a general contractor where such measurements have not been made carefully by the architect will tell you that the results will be poor and ultimately more expensive, because corrections will have to be made in course. Sisia is prompt, professional, and highly personable. We would recommend her services without reservation for any building project, large or small, where taste, judgement, and competence are paramount.

    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.
