Consequently, should I hire an architect for a remodel?
Usually homeowners will hire an architect before the contractor is involved. While it might be nice, in most cases hiring the architect who designed the plans to oversee an addition or remodel isn't necessary. So if you're on a budget, it makes more sense to handle dealing with the contractor yourself.
Likewise, how much do architects charge for drawings? Nearly 1,000 homeowners report that the average cost to hire an architect is $5,305, or between $2,018 and $8,597. This can come as a $60 to $125 per hour architectural design fee, or as 5% to 20% of the total project cost. This typically includes the cost to draw plans, or blueprints.
how much does a architect cost?
The usual percentage fee an architect will charge ranges from about 5% to around 12%. The difference depends on the complexity of the project, its similarity to existing projects, and whether economies of scale can be factored in.
How much does it cost to have blueprints drawn up?
Blueprints are typically created by a draftsperson using CAD software, with some assistance from an architect. For this example, we'll look at the cost of getting blueprints for a two story, 1000 square foot addition. The average cost is $1200-$1500.
