They worked diligently to make my vision a reality within my budget. They went the extra mile every step of the way. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Assuming this is new single family residential

makes the answer more simple.

Small towns = small fees and ability to trunkate the voulme of plans required to insure a good job.  It's from this perspective I'll attempt to corral these wild horses, answers architect have given prior.

 

Always attempt to get a by-the-hour rate, never a $/sf - they know how to play the game better than you in the latter and the former honesty is guaranteed by their state license board.

 

Never accept draftsmen to be placed in charge of your project, regardless of architect, engineer, surveyor, etc. even though rates may be charged lower, the product quality is even less than these charges with plenty of errors/omissions/oversights in planning when the licensed overseeer gets busy on other projects.

 

If you like the projects produced, obtain favorable references, then the hourly rate should be $60-120/hr small town.  No, you don't associate cost vs quality.  Look at overhead, employees ... if pronounced, then your fees go to pay for all these = less money/time devoted to your project.

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.

Overall I got way more than I expected. The people at
Milwaukee Architects Provider Name Locked
are artists, crafts people and perfectionists yet are EASY to to communicate with Be prepared though, ahaha, they are 100% transparent -- if they think you're making a design decision that doesn't make sense to them (they are the professionals after all) they will come right out and tell you and explain why it makes mo sense to them. Ahahaha, so be ready to learn or defend your insanity! Working with them was like working with that awesome trusted friend who will tell you when you have dill weed between your teeth!

The contracted date of completion was within two weeks, AFTER I had added a 2nd floor bathroom and a major structural problem was detected, documented and fixed. And the only reason they didn't get an A on "Price" was -- even though I chose my own budget) they let me get away with insisting "So it's a little out of my budget, it's gonna be in my house for the next 50 years!" I wouldn't have had it any other way!

I can hardly express how grateful I am to have found such a professional, artistic and trustworthy company as

took dimensions of the whole house and created six architectural drawings for the stairways, placing them at the optimum locations. He also helped me decide on the layout of the second floor rooms to maximize headroom, square footage, and utility of the space.

bent over backwards to work with my carpenter and me to help resolve questions that came up during construction. He came a couple of times on short notice.

's charge for the architectural drawings was $280. He never sent a bill for his time to come help with the floor layout (about 2 hours) or the stairways (another hour or two.)

Jorgan did an excellent job of providing great ideas, listening to our needs, and providing a well designed solution. He worked with our town's building board, and worked closely with the contractor. He specializes in homes, and designed structurally outstanding plans. Because we had perfect plans to take to multiple contractors to estimate, we believe we saved more money than if we had used a design build firm. Upfront costs are higher, but if you are definitely moving forward, it is a great investment of money.

since this was my first experience hiring an architect, but he explained the process very well, which put me at ease. He was very flexible with his terms and gave me several different options to choose from. A short while after our first meeting, I met with him to look at the initial renderings. I was very impressed with the quality and creativity of the drawings. After signing off on the initial drawings, he added a color scheme. It was a wonderful experience and I wouldn't hesitate to hire

His vision is incredible -- he can see the potential of a space and execute it. Remarkable talent! He kept the workers on track for our plan. We have been so pleased, and are often complimented on the design.
