Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
eric gedney | ARCHITECT
Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
"Bottom line: as a contractor who has worked with many architects Eric Gedney is one of the best I've worked with. Here's why: 1) Eric places the highest priority on serving his clients needs first. He has nothing to prove and no ego that needs constant stroking. 2) Eric is highly personable and is a great listener - he also has a wry sense of humor that makes his projects fun to be a part of. He works hard to establish a good connection with his clients and has an amazing ability to translate client wishes - even odd ones - into build-able reality. 3) Eric understands the importance of collaboration and team building and seeks to build the team early in the process. Contractors can easily be marginalized in this relationship and its not uncommon for them to be made the "bad guy" especially as costs grow with design. Eric listens and even defers to contractor input and will revise his plans to accommodate. 4) Eric has a great sense of design, scale, proportion, balance, flow and style which of course is important in an architect. But Eric also possesses a clear understanding of "real life played out in a space". Nothing frivolous, rather, there is a purpose for everything even if the purpose is just to create a deeply personal statement which sums up the clients taste and style. Further, nothing Eric does is run-of-the-mill everything is custom tailored to support the clients desires. 5) Finally, Eric can design to meet budget requirements and even though compromise may hurt he is able to scale a project down to help it get built (he is also happy to scale it up!). This is a very important trait in an architect as many projects in our industry die after design and clients are left with a really nice project that will never be built. A final word of advice to potential clients: when Eric suggests you choose your contractor early on in the process - do it! This is the best way to ensure your project hits your budget goals and building the team early pays off in many remarkable ways."

"We LOVE working with Heidi at H2D A+D. Down to earth, super creative, and exceptionally organized. Having completed projects of all types and sizes we know first hand how important it is to have an effective leader guiding things from the beginning. Each time we work with Heidi the plans are thorough, clear, & easy to interpret… so that by the time we show up to perform our tasks, we are set up to do nothing but succeed. Each job has that enjoyable, team approach and energy. And who wins? Everybody! Thanks Heidi!"

Dansk Design
Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
"Dansk Design came out to see how I could redesign my kitchen. Deanna was wonderful and not only arrived on time, but listened carefully to my concerns and wishes for how I would like my kitchen to function. She went above and beyond my expectations by providing me with several plans, at different price points, of how my kitchen could be redesigned. I look forward to having my new Dansk Design kitchen soon!"
- Hilde Webber
E SQUARE Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
"We hired Ecem for a major remodel. As the plans were developed she provided valuable insight and ideas that resulted in a far better product then we imagined. She took the time to learn what we liked and what our vision was. From this she designed the kitchen of our dreams. The bathrooms are nothing less than spectacular. She also spent a lot of time with us picking out fixtures, flooring (we ended up with a beautiful olive wood floor!) as well as quartz counter tops, paint colors and bathroom tile. She was also instrumental in helping us with the exterior features of our house we changed including accents and colors. We can't say enough about her attention to details and design ideas. We would highly recommend working with Ecem and would not hesitate to use her services again."

Barn Pros
Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
"My experience with BarnPros was top notch. During the planning process they were extremely helpful in making some changes as well as offering suggestions. I worked with Joel Gustafson for several months during the planning process and he was great to work with. When to barn arrived I had a local contractor put up the barn and then did much of the finish work myself. BarnPros was there to answer questions and help throughout the process. The reaction I get from people when they see the barn amazing. It is so well built that in a tornado, I'd head for the barn."

Walls and Weeds, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
"They say it says a lot when a contractor hires an Architect to do design on his personal home, and it should say a lot about Skip. Skip did a great job listening to my wife and I dream up the list of remodel priorities we had for our out dated 60's waterfront rambler, and put into design exactly what we were hoping to accomplish. He was able to project not only his own costs in Architect fees accurately, but was also very savvy of current construction costs and kept his design in great relation to our budget. I highly recommend Skip's services and will look forward to our next great project together."
- Precision Millwork and Door Company
Medici Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Cottage Lake, WA
"Medici Architects designed my home, and I am thrilled with the design. Emily Buchwalter, the principal at Medici, has a keen sense of how to balance a modern structure with the land on which it is sited. It was a delight to design the house with her, and she provided all that I wanted - and more. She also works closely with the contractor ensuring that the design is carried out faithfully. While the house is not yet completed, I am pleased with how the space is developing, and I'm very much looking forward to the completed project."

How do I find the best Cottage Lake architect for my home design project?

It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Washington subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Cottage Lake residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Cottage Lake, WA provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?

As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Cottage Lake, WA are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Cottage Lake interior architects:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
