Important Information

Why hire an Architect:

Few people realize how complicated it is to build – until they find themselves in the midst of building codes, zoning bylaws, contractor’s bids, materials selection etc.  The architect is the one professional who has the years of education, training, and background to guide you through the design, and construction process.  The architect will help define exactly what you want to build, and ensure that you get the most from your construction dollar.  When you embark on a construction program, you are making a commitment to a major investment.  Your architect can transform your ideas, and functional needs into a program, conceptual design, working drawings, and technical specifications from which your home will be constructed under your architect’s administration.  The question should not be “why hire an architect?” but “which architect do I hire?”
