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.

is a great designer and helped up tremendously in picking the correct cabinets - and granite and came up with a great design. The problems came after the order went in. They had supplier problems, and I had some quality issues that have never gotten resolved - by here husband Saied who handled all the installs and warranty issues. After going back and forth for almost 2 years - it looks like they are no longer in business as their website is non functional and their phone is disconnected. Bottom line - they at least made some attempt at helping you as long as you owed them money. After final payment was made - getting them to do anything for you was non-existent.

It was suburb! Over a space of 3 years, he designed with our architect a retaining wall 137 ft long and 34 ft tall (17 ft underground). The wall saved my home from sliding and is so well constructed and designed that it will last 200 years and will withstand a 9.0 earthquake.

We LOVED Ed (the owner)!! He was the fourth contractor/architect who had come out to our home to discuss the addition of an in-law suite to our bi-level home. He was the ONLY one who listened to us, discussed any possible difficulties then provided solutions according to what WE wanted! He wasn't proposing grandiose options (as some of the others had done) or looking to talk us into doing more than what we wanted/needed. Ed was knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. The verbal estimate was extremely reasonable. We were very, very impressed with the initial meeting and are hoping to work with him for this addition as he left us feeling confident that our home would be in good hands. I will provide another review and/or update this one as our project progresses.

Our home was missing insulation from the attic of the home, should be R-30 or R-32, and we actually only had R-13 or R15 down the center of the home. Being a modular home, the insulation may have blown out during transit to our property. The house was build in August 2014, and luckily we discovered the need for insulation within our warranty period so it was taken care of at no cost to us.

We hired
Park Hills Architects Provider Name Locked
to design a home for us. It was to be a net zero highly energy efficient home. We asked if he could do that. He said he could. We also gave him a very clear budget. He designed us a very lovely home that was in no way within our price range. We reiterated our price range. We paid him AGAIN to design it. The second design further did not fit our price range. We paid him in full and ended our relationship with him. We now have a builder who is working with us on meeting our price range. Mr.

is calling and asking for details about our project and telling us that the plans we paid for twice are his property and that we cannot use them to get building permits unless we hire him for an additional $40,000 to oversee the builder.

I was told the whole job would take one week to complete. First, they were supposed to start the following Monday to demolish the existing stairs, they did not show until Thursday and only partially demolished them. They did not resume the demolish and clean-up until the following week, approximately Wednesday after I called Mr.
Park Hills Architects Provider Name Locked
. It ended up taking 3 weeks because they wouldn't show up for days at a time. When they finally finished and came for the final payment, I expressed concern over the graded slope of the top landing. He said that was for the drainage. Upon consulting with an acquaintance in the construction business with pictures of the finished job, I was told that there was too much slope and it looked terrible. In addition, the 3rd step is loose and rattles with you step onto it, the joints have gaps without mortar/cement and the railing is already peeling in spots where it was not cleaned off properly. I contacted Mr.
Park Hills Architects Provider Name Locked
the following Monday about my concerns and that I wanted them corrected. Each time I called, he would promise to be there the following day to fix it. Three or four days would pass with no sign of him. I'd call again, and the same promise was made to be there the next morning. It is now 4 weeks since my first call and complaint. My husband doesn't think small claims court will do anything and it will probably cost us more money and still not get the job done. What can I do?

It was difficult to schedule the appointment as the provider did not want to come this far away. I provided measurements and pictures. It took some time to get someone (a designer) to come. They were to make recommendations and the eventual digital pictures of their design. The recommendations seemed

and not with my desires in mind. The pictures were not useful.
