Brett has been incredible to work with - from the first meeting he was very professional and responsive. He met with us and was able to design a home that we loved. We added a very large addition onto a 200+ year old farmhouse and his design was perfect! We are currently in the building process and watching our dream home come to life has been incredible. We can not thank him enough!

I was in a pinch for a set of blueprints needed to submit to the city and needed them asap. My entire job could not move forward without them. I spoke with Dale on the urgency of the matter along with several other design services. LET ME TELL YOU. Dale Graham knows his stuff, he was able to take my details over the phone and fill in all the gaps I couldnt communicate. The other guys had no idea what I was even asking for! Not only was the final product a total sucess, but it was completed above and beyond a timely manner. As a Thumbtack pro myself I knew exactly where to turn and could not be happier. Dale Graham Cad Design Services is now the go to company for Bulletproof Welding LLC. Thank you Dale!

I highly recommend JB Design Group. I interviewed at least four other architect and JB Design Group provided me with the best quote for our project. Once the project started they were reliable and responsive. I look forward to working with them again if the opportunity presents itself.

My reputation in all aspects of work is that of meticulous, creative and always taking quality to a higher level. I have seen competitors and high end store bought pieces and often am disappointed with level of durability and strength for similar price points. My clients like that I do not stop at delivery and final payment day, I like to make sure they are happy by checking in over the next year to see how my piece is holding up. This helps strengthen my relationships as well as teaches me if something does not perform as I expected, which is extremely rare :)

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.
