Casey exhibits a level of understanding, professionalism and courtesy that is refreshing and comforting. We enlisted Casey to develop plans to remodel our recently purchased home in 2013 and she far surpassed our expectations. She provided several reasonable options within our budget that fit our lifestyle, and generated plans that our town and GC felt were detailed and precise. My husband and I could not be more happy with our home and we are so very lucky to have had the experience we did working with Casey. We highly recommend her for any architectural and design needs you might need.

Working with Richard was a pleasure. We are doing a full remodel on our 2000 sq ft apartment and he prepared demolition, remodel, plumbing and electrical plans for our project. He was willing to come to the job site, answered emails quickly and was readily available by phone. He provided good recommendations and was flexible. And we thought the price was exceedingly fair. I would highly recommend him and plan to work with him again in the future! Thanks Richard!

My wife and I needed an architect to put together plans for our new business. New to the entire process, we were referred to Chris via his website and the archisketch process. What could have been overwhelming, was made easy. Chris explained the process, offered great insight, and turned the whole project around quickly. He handled various edits, and was a great representative when we needed assistance with town officials. We liked Chris' work so much that when we ventured on a second business location, Chris was our first phone call to set us on the right path, AND, when we wanted to dream up an addition to our home, Chris helped us come up with a plan that we're just thrilled with. Chris has been there from the beginning with us, and his insight has been critical to our success!

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.
