Verified review

As a small start-up, we hired Bob to streamline the design of our initial concept. He not only outperformed previous drafters with expedient and interactive service, but went above and beyond to help problem solve simple design errors and troubleshoot manufacturing possibilities. He has a wealth of information and experience that would make him an asset to any and all future projects.

a different point of view coming from Chile,


I do CAD design services for residential and light commercial projects up to 4,000 square feet, including but not limited to single and multi-family, remodeling, additions, shops, pole barns and interior design. My portfolio also includes topographical elevation plotting, parking lot design and commercial tenant improvements. With the use of CAD software, I have completed over 600 custom projects that have all been approved by the local building and/or planning departments. I have worked for over 40 general contractors across the southern Oregon region, many at a regular basis. I work directly with the homeowner and builder to make changes and modifications to custom designs, and then deliver a full set of working plans ready to be submitted for the permit process. I work with the plan checkers in the building and planning departments and several structural and civil engineers as needed, to get the project completed and occupied. Throughout the construction process, I am always available for answers to questions and complications or changes that arise on-site. I have an extensive knowledge of the Oregon Residential Specialty Code and the Oregon Structural Specialty Code as well as the Oregon Fire Code and most other applicable publications. I have specialized in hillside building design and construction and lateral bracing techniques for both wind and seismic activity and have followed all of the code changes over the past 15-20 years.

We appreciate deadlines, as they allow us to measure how well we meet and exceed our customers' design needs. Any design firm can promise you quality, competitive pricing, and reliability.

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.
