Architect Service reviews in Anderson
2. He starts work without securing the appropriate permits even after many many many emails asking him to secure the permits before continuing the work.
3. He asks you to tell the city permit office the job was "started by another contractor" if asked so that he doesn't get in trouble. Fortunately, we were never asked but have the emails to prove we wanted him to get the permits in place. Contract was signed in January, permits issued in May.

He doesn't follow up on the quality--or lack there of--done by his team and become virtually impossible to find unless you spend hours of time chasing him.

The drawings we got, nice though they were, were not signed and sealed. They are useless for the purposes of obtaining a permit from the town or independent pricing from builders. We have nothing to show for our experience with
