Architecture by Amy Kunkle / Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Here are some questions I get asked often, I hope they are helpful to you!


What does an architect do?

Here are some options for the scope of work:

  • Create your program (size and space requirements)
  • Help you set your budget for construction
  • Create a 3D model of your new or existing project
  • Design the home or building (Schematic Design)
  • Work with the contractor/builder to work out the design, mechanical and electrical systems, draw elevations of the project (Design Development)
  • Create the working drawings to get you a permit (Construction Documents)
  • Work with the contractor when he builds the project


How much does an architect cost?

It all depends on how much work you want us to do. 🙂 Typically architects charge a percentage of the construction costs, because the amount of work we do is directly proportional to the size of your project. The industry standard says architects charge between 8-15% of the cost of construction.


How long does it take to design a home?

It can take from a few weeks up to two months. It tends to take longer when decisions aren't made, or a client changes their mind.
