I had a fabulous experience working with Jason, and the team at DFW Autocad. I've never used Thumbtack before, so this was my first exposure. I simply created the details about the job, and joila, I had 4 interested parties. I emailed Jason, and he responded immediately. Set a time to meet with him, and met him the next day. He was very professional, asked a lot of questions, and then I showed him the space I needed drawings for. We agreed on the price, he took his measurements, and he did the work. Picked up the drawings today and it's exactly what I was looking for. Hopefully with the drawings I will be able to get a CO for my building and move on down the road. If not, I am totally confident, Jason can provide what the city needs. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a quality architect, at a reasonable price.

Amir picked up a messy, half finished design job which the previous architect had left un-done. He reviewed and finished this conversion of a store front to an apartment. It was challenging in that the commercial zoning regulations had to be addressed, state of Wisconsin variances obtained and more. This is a 1920s building and there were complex code and fire regulations that had to be resolved in a economical fashion. We also had issues finding builders which extended the job out for over a year - Amir stuck with us and is seeing the project through. We are very satisfied with his work.

I had gotten myself in a big bind with the City of Dallas. Due to my and my contractor's ignorance, we started building a garage without first obtaining a building permit. It was quite an ordeal during which I and my contractor each spent many hours at the City trying to figure out what all we needed in terms of drawings, material specs, setbacks, etc. In desperation, I posted my situation on Thumbtack and Mohammed was the first person to reply. I consider myself very fortunate to have found him. He offered to take on the project for a reasonable fee, got on the job immediately, worked closely with my contractor and me, provided invaluable feedback and produced the drawings we needed to obtain the permit. He also found us a structural engineer and negotiated a very reasonable fee for those services. Very positive experience with Mohammed. He is an experienced architect who has done projects internationally. Based on my experience, I recommend him without reservation.

Lisa is currently helping us through a major addition which includes a new kitchen and full bath. We couldn't be more pleased with the work she has done. She has the mind of an architect and the eye of a designer. She has been with us every step of the way from concept to (near) completion. Lisa put in a lot of work for us before construction with a keen eye to detail and, now that the process is near completion, we greatly appreciate all of her hard work. She has tremendous vision and can see things through a practical lens and design lens at the same time. Lisa also introduced us to her network of contractors, etc. Everyone that she has directed us to has been outstanding. My wife and I are thrilled that we had Lisa to steer the ship on this project. She is bright, professional, efficient, wonderful at communication and is a kind person.

Greg did a phenominal job from beginning to end on our lake house on Lake Richland Chambers. His attention to detail, collaboration with the builder, and experience and knowledge were outstanding. I would use Greg again for any new home or architecture needs.

Jackson Architects provided the remodel option we requested for our Master Bedroom and Bath and suggested options that we would not have imagined that could be accomplished in the space we were working with. As a result of the vision provided, we have a beautiful and spacious area.

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.
