DeMotte Architects

Choosing an architect based on price alone is a recipe for disaster, yet many homeowners don’t understand that this is not a commodity. You will NOT get the same quality of design & construction drawings from any number of architects. “You get what you pay for” definitely applies to architects and many “bargain” architects will provide vague, incomplete construction drawings, yet the homeowner doesn’t understand what they’ve received. Given a poor set of drawings to work from, contractors will inevitably inflate their price to cover the many unknowns & they know it’s going to take them longer to figure things out… and mistakes will be made.

A set of construction drawings should be seen as a really detailed set of instructions or a recipe… now imagine every other page is missing. You’ll figure it out, but it’s going to take longer and may not come out exactly as expected (may cost more, take longer, etc). Fortunately, our detailed drawings help keep our projects on time and budget. Contact us today.
