"Everything went great and the moulding was installed beautifully - a very 'seamless' job. I would definitely recommend them for this service to anyone considering this home improvement!

seemed like a decent enough guy. He showed up the day after we contacted him and spent close to an hour at our house walking around and" discussing ideas for our remodel. He had some good ideas and some bad (like building out to the base of a giant hackberry and actually constructing a screened-in porch around the tree, something the arborist we later brought out assured us was absolutely stupid). We paid him $150 for his visit, which he said would apply to the cost of the drawings (he quoted $3500). He also said he would visit with historical the next morning and figure out what was and what was not feasible, and that the visit with historical would be included in the $150. I did not hear from him the next day. The following day I called and he said he hadn't made it but he would that day. I didn't hear from him again. I called the following day and he said he was on his way. I didn't hear from him again. I called him the following day and he said they had been in a meeting so he hadn't been able to see anyone. Sadly, he said, he was leaving town the next morning for a family reunion. He would go to historical on Monday, he assured me, and be in touch. He apologized for the delays. This was now Friday, 8 days after we first met and 7 days after he was to visit with codes. I called him the next week and he did not pick up. I have never heard from him again. As far as I am concerned, he took payment of $150 for services not rendered and delayed my project by several weeks.
will apparently not tell you if he does not wish to take on your project but instead string you along with false promises. He will also repeatedly talk about how "blessed" he is and all the multi-million dollar projects he's doing in the Forest Hills/Brentwood area.

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.

was the first of 3 contractors I contacted to get back to me within a day of my

went above and beyond simply installing my new cabinets. He informed me of some issues , how to resolve them, and gave me recommendations for other contractors I would need to complete my kitchen project. He was prompt, his crew was friendly and they took care to not make more of a mess than was necessary. They also cleaned up nicely afterward. I would surely go to

and his crew did an excellent job installing the crown molding in our family room. They were very professional, polite and neat. They were also very accommodating when we chose to make changes to the original plan. Would like to use them again in the future. Highly recommended!

We had a firm plan and had bought "salvaged cabinets" for the kitchen.

was very patient with our "unconventional" order of operations. He made some great changes to our plan and also served as an advisor during the general project plan. He was always prompt and respectful of our "budgetary" concerns. Our house was built in 1908 and had a few surprises. We would not have moved forward as smoothly without

They were nice, polite, but no longer do residential work. I spoke to a representative who said he had some contacts and would call around, or perhaps he could help me out outside the company. In any case I haven't heard anything more after a couple weeks.

Wonderful to work with. She listened but proactively provided good advice and thoughtful alternatives. We went back and forth several times, each time she guided us closer to something workable and in line with our vision.
