"We met with and described what we wanted in a garage. He asked a lot of questions to help narrow down the project. Based on this session," created preliminary drawings which we received by email. We asked questions and suggested changes and then created 5 sets of final drawings which are being used to obtain bids for the project. This was a very pleasant experience. was quite thorough (the contractors have been able to give us estimates without any problem off of the drawings) and even provided the drawings in PDF format. He was very fast, surprising us with how quickly he completed the project.

"After purchasing the Big Deal, we waited a few weeks and then contacted the company to set up an appointment. The representative was on time when he came to our" house. He spent a long time talking over our wants and needs with us and he took notes as we talked. We were feeling really optimistic about the landscape plan. He left, saying he would draw up the plans and get back to us. Months passed. Finally we contacted the company again and made another appointment for him to come to the house and show us the plans. The plans were okay but he had forgotten to incorporate many elements that we discussed. He emailed us a pdf of the current plan and said he would update them to reflect our needs as well as deliver a hard copy. That was in June. Still haven't heard from him.

Architects

If you’ve got grand designs for your home remodel, consider investing in the building materials and design expertise, and artistry, a licensed architect can provide.

Toxic products in the home can be a big health hazard.

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.

Our project was the update of a 2400 sq ft TV room stuck in the 70's. Our project received 19 submissions, mostly from US based designers but also submissions from India, and the Questions from the designers were posted on a common "wall" and answered by the client. Most ...More of the submissions include colored renderings of their proposals with many including color and fabric recommendations. We were very pleased with the results and the whole process.

Our house is on a small 9 acre lake. I built our dock 30 years ago while the lake was dry (another long story). Hurricane , in 2004, lifted my posts out of the lake bed and left me with a shaky platform which continued to get worse over the years. We called at , and he promptly ...More developed a sketch and estimate to replace the dock.
It took a couple of weeks, because the work was interrupted by rainy weather. I'm impressed with the craftmanship - 6x6 supports, not 4x4's; the deck planks out for a few days to dry; mitered corners and perfect fit everywhere.
The price estimate came in somewhere between "it's a no-brainer - do it" and "no way", so we paused a little bit before signing on, but and his crew did a great job. I'd have them back again.
