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.

Ed was fantastic! We were novices in home additions and construction, and had lots of questions and uncertainties. Ed was patient and supportive throughout, as well as knowledgeable and professional. He would advise us on what was practical and what was not, and, if it was not practical, on alternate ways to achieve what we were wanting to do in a way that was practical. He helped us understand the cost implications of our options (e.g., 2 season screened porch, 3 season room, or 4 season sun room). He essentially took the pretty vague, high level concepts we had and translated them into a sound, livable design. While he made recommendations, we always felt that it was our decision, and we grew to trust him implicitly over time while still in control of the design of our addition. His construction drawings were used by the building contractor and they never had to deviate from the drawings to get the design to work.
We especially liked the interactive nature of the design phase, where we could visualize the design and the results of changes we made to it. It made the design process go quicker and we had more confidence at the end of the design phase that the design was what we wanted.
We are thrilled with the result! Ed was instrumental in making our dream addition come true!

is very professional, easy to work with and full of brilliant ideas. We had an original plan for our modifications that he looked at, he explained that what we were looking at would be costly. He made several suggestions that eventually
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
to a far supierior design that would cost about the same as originally planned with a lot more work done. Communication with him was easy and he replied promptly. His time estimates we very good and he would always deliver even faster than expected. I should also mention he is extremely patient. We delayed this project due to medical issues and many idea changes, but he was always ready to get back with us as soon as we were ready. He listens and makes suggestions based on your wants and budget. The next big project we undertake there would be no doubt I will use

I worked directly with

I gave the price an A because they cheated themselves when they gave the quote based on the Pictures which worked in our favor. They did however, try to make us pay for the work they actually did, but we didn't feel it was fair since we had to finish some things ourselves.The quality was fair because the wall is still standing, but the door does not latch to the door frame. The following is the email I sent as a review directly to the company; As a result of this email they offered to take us to lunch and the project manager was fired for his behavior:
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
-Project manager, Ramond-Did the actual work, Arjun-Gave quote
We are not really impressed with the service we got. We are willing to pay the full quote of 2200 that was given to us by Arjun, because we feel we were not quoted correctly. We think the quote should have been more and what we got is probably
$2200 worth. When I start the quote process on the 3rd, I called
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
and I was referred to Arjun. I dealt with him until the project was started. He told me to send an email of what we needed done and pictures would be helpful. We do not do construction which is why we reached out to builders and contractors. I thought they would need to come out to get a better picture of what need to be done.

Arjun said it would take three days to finish.
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
called and said he would start the job 6th or 7th because he had a few jobs to wrap up first. I talked to
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
on the 6th to see if they were starting, and he said no it would be the 7th. On the 7th
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
tells me his guys had a family emergency, but he brought the supplies they needed to do the job. So Monday the 10th comes and they didn’t get here until noon. They worked until 3 and the same on Tuesday and Wednesday. They finished everything except the painting and the door. We called
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
Monday the 17th he said
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
was going to come. He did not. Tuesday the 18th is when I Sent
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
the disappointment email. He brought the door and
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
came in.
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
comes in to bring the paint for the door and starts ranting. He starts talks talking to
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
about what needs to be done and He says he is tired of
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
with this job, it’s a waste of time and it’s a BS job. He says all this right in front of me.

I let my CEO know what was going on and he goes to see what is going on.
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
starts saying every time he comes out here something else needs to be added or done, and he didn’t even want to take the job in the first place. My CEO takes him to his office to calm him down, and they come out and start talking again. He kept saying all he got was an email and three pictures. My CEO was saying how unprofessional it was to be taking it out on us when he should be getting with his sales team about the issues that kept popping up.

It all comes down to, if he would have just given us an estimate and then came out to verify the estimate was right we could have avoided all the frustration. What happen to make all this complicated, is when we calculated our figures, we didn’t give enough room for the door to fit, so they had to move the wall out further and it got in the way of a few of our electrical plugs and phone
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
. This was the first thing that was changed. The second thing was that we need electricity in the wall, Which was in the original email by the way. And the third thing that changed was insulation in the wall, which was also in the original email.
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
told us that insulation did not usually go in interior walls, but we need it for sound proof reasons. Which all could have been avoided again if he came out to do a quote. We did not know we need to request that he come out here to do the quote, this was the impression I got from
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
.

There are still some things we have to finish ourselves, but we are just going to call the job complete with you guys and pay the invoice. My understanding from
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
is that this job should have been quoted at $3300. Again I am sorry about the long winded email, and I am not sending it to you because I am upset. I am just sending it to you to let you know how our experience was.

Quality craftsmanship. Experienced. Integrity. These are the perfect words to describe
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
and his team at
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
. Undertaking a complete home remodel can be a very stressful experience, unless you have the right Architect and contractor. Fortunately, this is our case. After interviewing several companies for our total home renovation, we made the right decision when we chose
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
from
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
to manage our project. At our initially meeting, he totally understood our vision and made great suggestions. He took his time and addressed all our questions, all of them! When working with a project that is six figures, we needed to find a company that we connected with and most importantly, trust. After meeting with

Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
being a licensed architect made things much easier knowing that we had to acquire drawings for the addition we were adding. After having many meetings with
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
to create the perfect layout, he presented us with a very detailed architectural drawing which we were extremely happy with. Once all the drawings and aspect of work was approved by us, the renovation began. We are currently still in process and the project is about 50% complete. It is a complete remodel; from new plumbing, electrical, to adding an addition! As
Chambersburg Architects Provider Name Locked
always reminds us, “we are getting a new home.” Being a licence architect, he is very familiar with all aspects of contruction and is very involved in every part of the project, which we truly appreciate. If you are searching for a company for your home remodel needs, I highly recommend
