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.
Architect reviews in Pleasant Valley
They are professional too. They arranged regular meetings to allow us to review the design progresses and made sure everyone is on the same page. They explained the design in a way that laymen could understand. One thing I have to mention is that, they use photo realistic renderings and animations to visualize the final looking of the restaurant, which is SO easy for us to understand (I am not very good at reading plans and elevations). In addition, they brought us to showrooms to see the real products or ordered material samples that could be used in the project, which helped us to make decisions with confidence. On top of this, they care about every detail to make sure they work.
The process started with a review of the space and idea discussions back in Summer of 2013 when we first moved into the house. He was thorough in his overview of the property and we talked ideas and primary concerns. After the meeting, we decided to get designs drawn up and get on our way to making the dream a reality. Jereme presented 3 different and innovative design options that met our primary criteria, but gave us different pros/cons to consider around cost and/or design. The designs were also accompanied by an estimate with specific line items/materials incorporated (plus some options if we wanted custom molding, upgraded appliances, etc.). We noodled and saved (and also had two other kitchen designers draw up their ideas) and finally to the plunge in November to start our 10 week renovation process.
The idea of actually starting a kitchen renovation is scary, but the process actually went well. Both my husband and I remarked at how clean the crew maintained the worksite and how they paid attention to keeping the rest of our home as operational as possible. Jereme himself was super attentive and provided great communication. We handled the majority of our daily communication through email (preferred, as we both work and we could answer quickly) and he was personally on-site several days each week. Jereme gave us practical advice where necessary if it involved saving time/costs and was a sleuth at securing the best costs and presenting options for the various design decisions. That helped us focus on "high payoff" items vs getting dragged down into the minutia. We had complete trust in him.
The build itself went pretty smoothly. The skilled laborers were professional and seemed to take pride in their work. After 6 months of daily cooking and weekly entertaining, the craftsmanship looks just like Day 1. As for our day-to-day general contractor,
At the end, the outcome is absolutely beautiful. Of course we were over a bit on budget, but within reason and it was largely our changes (went with high end appliances and required additional electrical work or decided to change from stainless to panels). What they say is true -- any single change after a design is set can have little repercussions. Make your decisions up front! We also went over our time estimate by a couple of weeks due to Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years holidays but ultimately couldn't be happier with the results. The space is phenomenal for our family of four and expertly designed for our lifestyle and aesthetics. I think it is a kitchen that will stand the test of time.
