Rehkamp Larson Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in South Saint Paul, MN
"Jean Rehkamp Larson is talented, patient, articulate, creative, brilliant, practical, systematic and delightful. We live in a 1908 Farmhouse in Minnesota, which we purchased 14 years ago. We made very few improvements during those years. Our 3 kids were in school and then starting college and life was too busy. I knew we eventually would get to updating and remodeling our home so I kept looking for possible architects. Jean wrote the book "Farmhouse Book". I immediately realized that she understood the elements that I wanted to preserve and maintain, yet update to make more livable and comfortable for our expanding family, as kids come home with partners and maybe eventually grandchildren. This project is 2+ years in the works mainly because of unforeseen surprises behind the walls i.e. lead pipes, extension cords in the wall used for electricity, porch walls that were structurally unsound and could not pass inspection as well as the increased expenses because of those surprises that required refinancing and prioritizing. As well as decision making difficulties between 2 very stubborn people. :) We are coming into our final push to finish the kitchen, cabinets and trim work. We have remodeled the upstairs bathroom, we have moved the kitchen back to its original location from its 1970s tacky remodel to incorporate a bathroom on the main floor, Put in a main floor handicap accessible bathroom, wrap around porch, new entryway, sunroom off the kitchen, geothermal heating and cooling."

"Dave Charlez Designs was amazing to work with on our custom home build. The home turned out just as we had imagined it and the process was easy and fun. What set David Charlez Designs apart from other architects was the reasonable price and 3D imagery of the interior and exterior of the home. Very professional, very talented, and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an architect in the Twin Cities."

"It's rare to find an architect that immediately grasps your clients' vision, especially when they don't know what they want (or need)...often times, it's a process that takes many meetings. Jim was able to work with my clients and create a completely new, unique and wonderfully artful design that transformed an average home into a showcase that will both functional and beautiful. His attention to detail will be evident in every aspect of the home design."

How do I find the best South Saint Paul 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 Minnesota 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 South Saint Paul 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 South Saint Paul, MN 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 South Saint Paul, MN 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 South Saint Paul 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?
