What Houzz contributors are saying:
The 15 percent fee typically covers full architectural services or the drawings required to get everything you want in your home and have it all worked out before construction begins.

When securing competitive bids, ask what services are included — and excluded — in the firm’s fee, so you are comparing apples to apples.
