Whether you’re building a custom home, enlarging a kitchen, or doubling the size of your house, hiring an architect can be a sound investment. Many people ask, “If I know what I want, why do I need an architect?” Or, “Why should I pay two people, can’t my builder just handle it?”
While it’s important to weigh the impact hiring an architect will have on your budget, over the long term doing so can actually save you money. Here’s how.
The Role of an Architect in Vero Beach
Architects are trained to see the big picture. Few people fully understand how complex a building project is. Design options, contractors, zoning laws, and building codes are the major pieces of the puzzle but there are many smaller pieces that must also fall neatly into place for a project to succeed.
As no two projects are exactly alike, an architect’s training, experience, and vision can guide you through the entire design and construction process. They’re masters at turning design aspirations into square feet and three-dimensional space, and they do it in a way that makes your project cost-effective:
A Collaborative Process
The best architects know how important it is to work with your builder. In fact, many architects today also offer construction services or work closely with specific construction firms. They know designing and building or remodeling a home is a collaborative affair between the homeowner, builder, and architect.
Partnering with an experienced architect means your project gets another crucial advocate, one who’s empowered to champion the unique design challenges your project presents. When all is said and done, you end up with a well-designed space that meets your needs while also working within your budget and schedule.
