"We hired Jim Carlson for some architecture work and had a very good experience. We had planned a remodel of our whole first floor, and although there weren’t many features that actually required an architect, there were a few areas that did, and we wanted to have drawings so that a) we’d be able to visualize our project, and b) we could get accurate bids from contractors. We had struck out after calling several other architects because they were unwilling to take on a “small job”, but in the end, it wasn’t so small and I don’t know how we would’ve managed without an architect, so we really appreciated Jim’s willingness to work with us. The first thing you’ll notice about Jim is that he is a very high-energy individual, which is positive when time is money—we felt he was really making the most of our time by thinking and responding quickly. When it came to designing the plans, we liked the fact that Jim was always very receptive to input—he is not egotistical or attached to his own ideas, rather he made every effort to visualize what we wanted, and often made the comment that “it’s your house, not mine”. We’ve known other architects who could not leave their personal taste at the door…. He did make practical suggestions for example a granite yard recommendation, and a type of stip-LED lighting for under-counter lighting, not strictly architectural advice, but appreciated all the same! Once he’d done the first pass on our plans we decided to make a number of changes, and we felt that this is where the process really paid off. It was only after we’d seen it on paper that we realized that some of our ideas were unworkable, so the process was very worthwhile (i.e. we were able to come to our senses and reconfigure prior to starting the actual construction) .The changes did cause our costs to climb due to printing and reprinting the plans with each change. This is something we were aware of in advance, but only because I’d asked specifically if there would be any additional charges over and above the quote, and at that point Jim mentioned the plan printing charges. This is not a trivial amount—for us it amounted to several hundred dollars, so do bear this in mind as you make changes. There were a few places where the plans were not perfect, and we were never sure whether this was a) due to the initial measurements (these were taken by another architect prior to Jim coming on the scene), OR b) due to details being overlooked when Jim delegated some of the drawing to a draftsman in the Philippines. In our case the imperfections were caught by our contractor so there was no fall out, but it did lead to a bit of apprehension. Once our project was underway we made a decision (to move our furnace to the roof) that required a change in plans, structural engineering and another visit to the permit office. We were very pleased that Jim was able"
