A grassroots movement in neighborhood building, called cohousing, presents seniors with another option to stay connected and age in place in their own home.
Consider your home's layout to decide if an existing space can be converted into a game room or if you'll need to add on.
Whenever possible, arrange furnishings to open up areas of floor and avoid blocking views to windows and doors. The farther you can see into, and through, a space, the larger and more open it will seem.
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.

interests. The entrance way of the house is dramatic in an understated way. For 10 years the construction has stood the test of time. It seems like new to me.
My experience with
When my addition (big project as it included raising the roof) was done I was extremely pleased as it looked more elegant than I even imagined.
I still love this house and ”
We absolutely loved working with ”
NOW, I COPIED THIS FROM A CONVERSATION I'M HAVING WITH THE WARRANTY CASE MGR AND I AM SPEAKING ABOUT THE INSPECTOR THAT CAME OUT TO MY HOME TO LOOK AT THE ISSUES HERE.
THE DRYWALL IS "SOFT" IN THE HOUSE ITS THE ONLY WAY TO DESCRIBE IT. I DID ASK HIM TO COME IN TO INSPECT THAT AS WELL. THE BUILDER DID GO OUT OF BUSINESS FOR CHINESE DRYWALL. MY HOME WAS BUILT DURING THAT TIME PERIOD
THE LAMINATE IN THE 3 ROOMS AS YOU CAN TELL IS EITHER MISCUT OR BECAUSE OF THE SHIFTING THERE I UP TO 1/2" SPACING BTWN THE BOARDS. WALKING ON IT WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AS TO NOT GET OUR FEET PINCHED.
THERE ARE CRACKS IN ALL AREAS OF THE HOUSE WALLS AND FLOORS, WINDOWS & DOORS don't CLOSE PROPERLY - THEY LEAK, BUGS AND DIRT COME THRU.
THE ORIGINAL DUCTWORK I HV BEEN TOLD IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO COOL THE HOUSE OR REMOVE THE HOT AIR. THE SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. I HAVE ALREADY REPLACED THE AC. BUT THE DUCTWORK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POWER SURGE THAT BLEW EVERYTHING OUT. I HAD NOTICED WHEN I MOVED IN HOW MUCH WARMER ROOMS WERE IN MOST OF THE HOUSE YET A COUPLE WERE COOLER.
I'M HOPING HE INC THAT THE FOUNDATION IS ERODING AWAY BC OF THE WAY THE GRADING WAS DONE OR NOT DONE. THERE WAS NO GUTTERS INSTALLED SO ALL RUNOFF FROM THE ROOF WAS DESTROYING THE GRADING. THE 1ST THING I DID AFTER PURCHASE WAS INSTALL GUTTERS. IT HELPED. BUT THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE AS YOU CAN SEE FROM TEH PICTURES FROM THE INSPECTOR.. I've NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE.
THERE ARE CRACKS IN THE FOUNDATION FROM THE GARAGE TO THE BEDROOMS TO THE BACK PATIO, WALLS BOTH INSIDE AND OUT, THE MORE I'M HERE THE MORE I FIND.
THE ELECTRICAL RAN IN THIS HOUSE I JUST don't UNDERSTAND HOW IT WAS PASSED OR HOW ANYTHING WAS PASSED NEW MIAMI
THE ROOF IS DISINGRATING. HE DID CHECK THAT AND AGREED. ON THE BLUE PRINTS THERE SHOULD BE A RIDGE VENT ACROSS THE TOP OF THE HOUSE, ACCORDING TO THE BLUEPRINTS THERE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A RIDGE VENT ON TOP OF THE GARAGE BUT THERE IS. COMMON SENSE HEAT RISES TO THE HIGHEST POINT. THE ROOF BUT IT IS LITERALLY BAKING FROM THE INSIDE OUT. THERE ARE NO OTHER VENTS IN THE ROOF. THERE IS NO WAY FOR THE HEAT TO ESCAPE FROM THE ROOF UNLESS IT ALL GOES TO THE GARAGE WHICH ITS NOT DOING BECAUSE ITS THE LOWER PEAK. THE ROOF IS LITERALLY SOFT BY TOUCH BY PRESSING ON IT ON EITHER SIDE OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE WAY.
HE ASKED ME IF ITS LEAKING AND IM NOW WONDERING IF THATS THE RESULT OF SOME OF THE MOLD IN THE MASTER BATHROOM, WHICH I JUST FOUND WHEN I WALKED IN THE WATER CLOSET AREA IN THE MASTER BATH TO TAKE THE PICTURE IN COMBINATION OF THE IMPROPER VENTILATION. I LITERALLY HAVE TO KEEP THE EXHAUST FANS RUNNING ALL THE TIME IN TEH MASTER BATH WHICH I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO DO. I don't KNOW WHERE THE EXHAUST FANS VENT EITHER IF THEY VENT PROPERLY TO THE SOFFITS OR JUST INTO THE ATTIC. I HAVE JUST SPRAYED THE MOLD WITH CONCROBIUM TO
THE CEILING IS MISSING INSULATION IN MANY AREAS PER THE COUNTY INSPECTOR.
SINCE I HAVE HAD THE GUTTERS PUT UP I AM LITERALLY PULLING TAR FROM THE ROOF WITH THE ROOF GRAVEL OUT OF THE GUTTERS THAT PEELS OUT OF IT IN SHEETS. IT WAS NEVER NOTICED PRIOR BC IT WAS JUST FALLING INTO THE GRASS. I HAVE HAD 3 ROOFING COMPANIES TELL ME THE ROOF IS DISINIGRATING AND MELTING FROM THE INSIDE OUT. THE ROOF IS GETTING SO HOT ITS MELTING. YOU CAN SEE THIS FROM TEH PICTURES THAT HE TOOK OF THE ROOF.
THE STRAPS ARE NOT SECURED TO THE BEAMS. ONLY BEING NAILED ON 1 SIDE LETTING THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STRAP HAND DOWN. DIAMOND PLATES ARE NOT NAILED IN JUST HAMMERED IN. NAILS FROM THE ROOF THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO ATTACH TO THE SUPPORT BEAM don't. I don't THINK 1 NAIL ACTUALLY HITS ANY OF THE BOARDS AS EVERY SINGLE NAIL RUNS ALONG SIDE OF THE BOARDS NOT INTO IT. I REALLY WORRY IF A STRONG HURRICANE COMES THAT THE ROOF IS NOT GOING TO BE SECURE. AGAIN HOW DID THIS PASS INSPECTION ??
THE KITCHEN & BATHROOM CABINETS ARE FALLING APART, PEELING, BREAKING APART. I've NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS.
THERE IS NOT EVEN A WATER SPICKET AND 1 ELECTRIC ACCESS ACROSS THE ENTIRE BACK PATIO.
EVEN THE PAINT IN THE HOME HE USED THE EXACT SAME CHEAP FLAT PAINT FOR EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN THE ENTIRE HOUSE AND CEILING THRUOUT.
BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU BUY A HOME BUILT FROM
