"We were looking forward to getting a pretty extensive covered patio with fireplace, bathroom and potentially screened in porch integrated with our existing landscape/pool." seemed like a nice man but he did not appear to be interested in providing this service. I told him we were flexible on the starting date but that the fall (post pool season) would work out best. I wanted to get the initial design going but he felt it would be a waste of time. He used phrases like "estimates aren't free", "this takes a lot of my time", "you would be wasting my time if you get it done now", "call me back in mid-August". Not exactly what your looking for when you're prepared to spend $100K+. I can't speak for his quality of work but the other reviews were very positive, which is why I contacted him. This was simply a case of bad initial impression. I could already hear the excuses and complaints once the project got started.

Why Hire an Architect?

Hiring an architect will help make any remodeling or building project successful.

Architects

If you’ve got grand designs for your home remodel, consider investing in the building materials and design expertise, and artistry, a licensed architect can provide.

Toxic products in the home can be a big health hazard.

A large-scale remodel that makes drastic changes to a home's structure or increases its square footage with an addition is an ambitious undertaking.

With building design software readily available, some contractors have expanded their businesses to offer design services for smaller jobs.

Angie's Answers

?

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.
