The Right Person for the Job
People often call an architect and state that they “know what they want and can you just draw it up?” This is a common problem for many architects.
What does an architect do? Many people do not fully understand the scope of work that architects perform. Most people that remodel their home do not hire an architect. Most hire a builder who simply builds what they request.
I receive these calls frequently as well. Bob Borson, at Life of an Architect, has eloquently written a very educational post on this topic. Please read this for a better understanding of who is the right person to hire.
