Hendricks Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Sandpoint, ID
"We have worked with Hendricks Architecture on a number of projects and have always found them to be highly professional, creative and easy to work with. I'm very impressed with their ability to take a client's list of design wants and needs, often times expressed with only a few pictures and emails, and transform that information into a beautiful design with a functional layout. We've recommended a number of clients to Hendricks Architecture and regardless of the home size or budget, each client is given the same level of attention and care. Nationally recognized for luxurious lake and mountain cabins, for one of our clients they designed a small lake cabin, to be used as a family retreat, that will be certified by the National Association of Home Builders Green Building Standard. Lastly, as a contractor, we appreciate Hendricks Architecture for considering our input and expertise during the design phase. We have found that when such collaboration is allowed to take place a project is more likely to stay on schedule and within a client' budget."

Design Services Northwest Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Sandpoint, ID
"Oscar and team did an incredible job designing our lake home. I'm a budget focused guy and he was able provide thoughtful design solutions that minimized cost while maximizing the wow factor of our design. Our site was extremely steep (think near vertical) and Oscar was able to create an incredibly efficient solution by integrating structural and site design with our unconventional floorplan needs. Our project is nearing completion and Design Services NW was our best decision. Nate W"

Spokane House Plans, Inc
Architects and Building Designers in Sandpoint, ID
"We designed our house with Spokane House Plans last year. We wanted two-story appearance, but we didn't want two-story house. AK found a compromise by putting guest suite upstairs, with all living on main floor. When we ran into some site problems during the construction (steep hill), he came back and adjusted the plans free of charge! Definitely recommend and would use him again and again!"

I used Jeff Fountain for consulting on a downtown project and I also had to privilege to sell one of his buildings."

How do I find the best Sandpoint 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 Idaho 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 Sandpoint 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 Sandpoint, ID 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 Sandpoint, ID 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 Sandpoint 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?
