  • How much do Architectural services cost?
    Fee structures may differ from one Architect to another, however all are normally based on either a percentage of construction costs, hourly rate, or a fixed fee. Our preferred structure is a fixed fee based on the size and complexity of a project. We are confident in our sustainable home design process and believe this helps you establish your projected budget from the outset.
