Our experience with EFG Architect, LLC was excellent. The project went very smooth from start of design through construction. EFG was able to work and stay within our budget and still meet the needs of the project. I know Mr. Ed Garcia has more than 30 years experience in design and construction in residential, multi-family, and commercial. Given the opportunity I would definitely use EFG Architect, LLC in the future and would recommend them to anyone.

I will keep my name anonymous for privacy reason; however, I am a Purchasing Manager in the residential construction business. When my wife and I decided to build our own home I new we needed the best architect for the best price to draw our dream home. J. Louis Custom Designs came highly recommended from my friends in the business. We met near my home, gave Jonathan our ideas and in a weeks time he had everything on paper. Months later my wife saw some things she wanted to do differently - we relayed the ideas to Jonathan and he had the edits back to us quickly and for a fair price. I will use J. Louis Designs on all of my future builds.

My husband and I had been looking for an architect for months. I had searched thousands of stock floorplans and just couldn't find one that matched our needs. Victor is a well informed experienced professional. He listened to our needs and offered his advice when we had doubts. When we saw the first rendering of our floorplan and the home exterior I was brought to tears. My dream had finally come to fruition. We are almost finished with the plans and can't wait to start construction. Thank you Victor.

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.
