Hiring an architect will help make any remodeling or building project successful.

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.

A large-scale remodel that makes drastic changes to a home's structure or increases its square footage with an addition is an ambitious undertaking.

Angie's Answers

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.
