Pricing For My Services

Pricing: Where a full service architect could typically charge a percentage of the total cost of construction, while my custom services are instead a more reasonable cost based on the heated space (square footage) of the design. The price range will depend on the complexity of the house and the site, and the final price will be determined by the design specifications. Because the costs of my services are not based on the value of the home being designed – you can expect to save thousands over the usual costs of hiring a full-service Architect.

Stock Plan Modifications:

My pricing varies depending upon just what and how much you would like me to do. For instance if you have already purchased a set of stock plans from another vendor, but you need them detailed, or a plot plan drawn,  or even updating for local codes, I can help!

First Meeting

My First meeting is normally free, depending upon mileage traveled. I prefer to keep my initial meeting to under fifty miles one way from my office. Once we have had the time to sit down and go over your hopes and needs, I will put together a solid fixed cost quote which I will honor for up to five days (unless we make other arrangements at that first meeting).


Regardless of whether you have me on a lump sum or an hourly basis, I will require a deposit. I work off the deposit, the balance being due upon completion. *However, sometimes the local building officials will want more details, so even after final payment, I will make required additional changes to your plans at no charge.*

*changes after final payment do not include structural engineering or for that manner, Engineering of any sort including truss engineering.  Structural engineering will usually require additional drawing time and will be handled on a case by case basis.

Full Service Design:

Full Service Design and Construction Plans pricing: $.80 per Square Foot and up, depending upon the complexity of the project.

Hourly Fees…

For those who feel they would like to pay as they go, I will work on an hourly pricing ($95.00 per hour) basis against a deposit. Inquire below and state you would like to work on an hourly basis.

*Pricing is an estimate based on finished (heated & cooled) square feet. Contact me for a face to face meeting and a free quote
