Brendan has done a number of jobs on our house both large and small and we have been thrilled with the results every time. He is a gifted carpenter who always comes up with brilliant design solutions for whatever you are trying to accomplish. It's like getting a top-notch architect, engineer and carpenter all in one. This has proven invaluable to us on several occasions. Beyond that he is an extremely nice and trustworthy person. He is the only person I have ever asked to do a job without asking the cost. I knew whatever he said at the end would be fair and it always was. If you are looking for superior quality work at a reasonable price without having to stress over it, Brendan is your man. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Buddy was so helpful. He had great ideas for our design that we had never considered — and are ultimately going with! Very flexible with scheduling appointments on evenings / weekends, too.

It is with complete satisfaction that I can recommend Home Collection Design and its president, Paul Boyle. As a physician, I don’t have the availability of time needed to construct a new home. My wife and I contacted and met with Paul and found that he was a wealth of knowledge in the design and construction of luxury homes. He guided us on budgets and planning, placement of the home on the lot, specifics of the architecture and all the elements of building a custom home. Home Collection | DESIGN not only designed but managed the entire project from start to finish working with the builder, architect, landscapers and other trades. Paul’s attention to detail, design skills and his tireless efforts created the home of our dreams. We cannot thank him enough for creating such a great home. Gibsonia, PA

    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.
