The Bottom Line
So, really, what does it cost?
Here at the office, Don likes to explain your investment in architectural services by pointing out that when you buy a new house, realtor fees are about 6%. Similarly, an architect will generally cost 5%-7% of your total construction budget through the permit drawings.
It’s easy to get started- the fees are hourly until the pricing phase (and if you engage in our full scope of services that means this part is about 40% of the total cost outlined above).
Ultimately, the benefits of hiring an architect greatly outweigh the costs for most medium to large projects. You will benefit from having an advocate who:
- implements your design wishes so you can have confidence in the big picture — the plan — and the stress reduction which comes with that.
- thoughtfully designs your project to meet budget parameters and/or eco-friendly design and passive solar design.
- provides code compliant documents to protect you and your property.
- communicates with all the members of the Dream Team on your behalf.
