Any Architects out there ?
Will soon be looking for an Architect to design a home of about 3000 sq. ft on a wooded lot with a great view in Skagit County
Any idea what typical Architect fees are for a Custom Home and what all do you get for the price other than a set of prints?
Re: Any Architects out there ?
Most architects charge a % of the cost of building the home; usually 5% or more. Various services, such as builder supervision can be extra, or can be contracted for. Some architects include the structural engineering, some don't. I believe the AIA website at aia.org has a standard contract and lists of architects.
You might note that current construction costs for architect-designed custom homes run from around $150/sf on up, with most running probably $300/sf. $150 is really cheap for this class of home.
