Frequently Asked Questions
Your architect will visit your home before doing any design work, but we are able to offer a consultation in our office or by phone using digital photos that you take of the interior and exterior of your home. Based on the year the home was built, your home’s location, and your photos, your Architect will be able to identify the potential issues involved. We have done almost a thousand projects that started this way, so we know how to make it work.
Bring photos of any part of the home you would like to discuss, and photos of all exterior sides of your home. Your Architect will help you identify the things you need to change about your home during your consultation. If you have any, bring any other pictures, photos, or drawings that show spaces or styles that you like.

The total cost is a function of the type of project we design, the scope of the renovation, and the level of our services selected. Your architect can give you a more specific answer after discussing the scope of your project during your architectural consultation.
Usually between six to twelve weeks. It depends on the size of your project, the workload of the architect you are meeting with, and the time you can put into the design process.
