I utilized Maxwell for an external repair project, to seal brick on my building and stop moisture/water from entering through the walls. Robin and Frank were very responsive and professional. I was satisfied with the job that they did and the quality of their work. They were also reasonably priced. I am planning to work with them again on some future projects.

My daughter called C.K. Remodeling & Design to have our bathroom updated with handicap accessories after I had a bad fall in the shower. Charles got everything installed right away and he was a hoot to talk with while he worked. I enjoyed his company and am thankful he made my bathroom much safer for me to get around.

Chadd and Way Maker Solutions performed the tile work in my new bathroom. The tile consisted of the floor, all the walls and the ceiling, including the tub surround and shower. The work was completed in a timely manor and the end results are outstanding. The price was reasonable for the work involved. Chadd was in communication on a daily basis and offered suggestions on how to make the design better. I am satisfied with their work.

David St.Jacque has designed several major changes and additions to our home that have made it totally unique and exponentially more enjoyable. At present, we're in the process of making another major change in our kitchen. With each of these projects, we've given David our ideas and he has taken them and turned them into even more than we envisioned! He's very creative and always seems to find the perfect solution to any snag in the process. We would highly recommend David's talents to anyone looking to build, add to, or redesign their home----working with him is a pleasure!

About

I am a freelance professional engineer, interested in helping your company at peak workload times when the demand for the latest AutoCAD design skills exceeds your resources. I've developed a wide range of skills during my over 30 years' engineering career, but none were as rewarding as my 6 years as an AutoCAD designer in the automotive and electrical industries. Unfortunately, I was forced to put my career on hold 6 years ago when I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent surgery and treatment. After five years in remission, I am now considered cured. The experience taught me to value a balanced life, and for me, life without work is unbalanced, leading me to offer my services as a freelancer dedicated to the area about which I am most passionate -- AutoCAD design. I found my days tremendously fulfilling in recent months when I updated my AutoCAD skills using refresher courseware recommended by MIT for an experienced professional. The self-directed software helped me enhance and expand my existing skills. As a result, I created an extensive portfolio of mechanical and some architectural drawings that reflect the latest design technology, including 3-D design. Freelancing also required me to multitask and manage multiple assignments, always meeting deadlines. My ability to focus and efficiently manage my time enabled me to work independently without distraction and at an even pace. Now that I am not dedicated to a full-time position, I plan to devote myself to one project at a time, allowing me to be flexible and available to my clients. I have had an abundance of experience in engineering and quality. I have attached resume for my experience working with engineers, managers and clients.

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.
