"Terrible, sloppy work, have to pay someone else to fix.
doesn't return calls or emails once he has the money. Doesn't arrive on" time. Snippy and arrogant attitude. We had a very clear idea of what we wanted and very unsatisfied with final job. Horrible experience.

-Olivier L.

A
"Beautifully!
is wonderful to work with and has such an amazing design mind. He came up with great ideas for the new floor plan and finish" details that make for a beautiful home. He is really good at listening to his clients, but also weighing in where he feels it's really important and explains why it's so important to go a certain direction. He is a pleasure to be around and has a very gentle nature.

-Barbara S.

With a thorough knowledge of what you want in your home design, you can work with an architect to help create a house from the inside out to meet your needs.

Architect first - for around $1000 typically you will get site consultation, a few sketches showing what you said you wanted, and a preliminary (by the book) cost estimate - that you can use to figure if your budget or scope of work needs major adjustment. Then, if you go ahead, typically about 10-20% of total project cost for complete plans and specs (including above cost), depending on complexity and level of interior design detail, and if construction inspection services are included.

 


 
 
Generally, nothing is free with an architect - unlike a contractor where a bit of consultation and a rough estimate is a lead-in to the actual work he hopes to get (the construction/repair) and part of his bidding cost, an architect (and engineer) makes his living giving advice and consultation and developing designs and cost estimates - so giving it away for free is sort of like a dentist doing sample fillings for free. Some will come to your house to discuss your concepts for 15-20 minutes for free, basically to see if they want to take you on as a client or feel your job is the type or size they want, but you should expect little or nothing in the way of a design or cost estimate for free - the most you might get would be an opinion on whether it sounds, off the cuff, like your budget is roughly in line with your desired scope of the project.
 
 
On more complex or up-scale remodels, it is not unusual to contact several architecture firms and request proposals - where they basically come see the site, then give you a sketch or few or more common today, computer-generated altered photos of your place, showing conceptually what they can do for you, then you choose the one you like the most and go with that one for final design. Typically $500-1000 range fee (each) to get that done for small jobs, larger jobs will typically be no charge but that assumes probably $25-50,000 plus anticipated fees if they get the job.
 
 
Bear in mind in the latter scenario you cannot pick and choose betweenthe best parts of each proposal - the architect owns the design and it is copyrighted, so while you can choose bui9lding elements (dormers, bay windows, etc) from any of the proposals, specific design or color combinations are copyrighted by the proposer.

We worked with
Asheville  Architects Provider Name Locked
on a residence
and felt we could not have been in better hands. They take a lot of time
to understand client needs and wants, while also advising on the best
ideas to fit a specific site.
Asheville  Architects Provider Name Locked

are experts at creating beautiful yet highly functional spaces, with an
emphasis on natural materials and energy efficient design. They are
also skilled communicators, and work to make sure clients understand
every step of the design process, while actively seeking client input at
key phases along the way. Five plus years after completion, we are
still amazed and delighted every day by the lovely spaces within our
home.

Asheville  Architects Provider Name Locked
is very responsive and polite person. I was looking for someone to design small renovations in our house.
Asheville  Architects Provider Name Locked
came within 1 week and spent a half hour with us just looking at our house and chatting with us about what he could do for us. He gave us an estimate of what he thought it would cost us for him to draw the design. He was very gracious and helpful. We ended up not going with him because we wanted to have someone who could both design and build. But I would definitely contact
Asheville  Architects Provider Name Locked
if I had a large scale need.

Asheville  Architects Provider Name Locked
was very responsive and communicated well during the entire process of designing the house plans I'll use to build my first home. I chose one of his stock plans which he modified it to suit my needs. The plan I ended up with really matched my vision for the house I plan to build. He advised me when ideas I had weren't architecturally appropriate and he was quite capable in making the desired changes I wanted such as an additional small bedroom on the main floor and rearranging various windows and doors. Overall he was very easy to work with and I'm very pleased with the final result. I recommend him highly.
- James A.
