Is My Project Too Small For An Architect?

Is my project too small for an architect?

The Monday after a home show always feels like I’ve run a marathon. In actuality I’ve spent three days sitting and walking around a ten by twenty foot booth. But during those three days I listen, answer questions, and explain what architects do. After answering the same questions and explaining the same process hundreds of times, my brain turns to mush!

Why do I need an architect?

Why do I need an architect?


As I prepare for the Midwest Home Show (Nov. 19 – 21), I wonder who will be the first to ask me, “Why do I need an architect to design my home?” It’s almost like a challenge or a dare. People walk by my booth and see photos of well designed homes. They know there is something different about these homes than most of the homes they encounter. They can’t say what it is, but they see it just the same. So they comment on how nice the homes look and then ask the question.
