At Open Door Architecture, we are constantly improving our abilities to help you visualize the design, narrow down the options, and think through construction in advance so you can win the game of construction and get the result you want.
When’s the right time to hire an architect?
It’s really never too soon. We can help answer big picture questions like whether it even makes sense to renovate given your home’s value, how long you plan to stay there, and home equity in the neighborhood. Sometimes shopping for a new house is the better choice.
Clients often call us about adding on to their homes, and, after an on-site visit with one of our architects, discover wasted space we can reconfigure to get the same extra room for much less money.
Or, sometimes the opposite happens and the “extra space” you hoped to finish in your basement or attic is actually riddled with costly structural and insulation issues that make an addition or a new home a much sounder choice.
Imagine how good it will feel to move forward with your renovation plans knowing you’ve considered all the options and made an informed decision about which is the best fit for your style, budget, and schedule. Enjoy the peace of mind you will have knowing you can reach out to us at any point in your project for input on paint colors, product selections, or what to do when demolition reveals a rotten foundation that requires a tweak to the plan.
Hiring Open Door Architecture is like hiring a coach — someone who’s seen hundreds of renovations and construction projects and can be in your corner, helping you each step of the way.
Whether you need a few hours of help to fine-turn a bathroom floor plan, or an on-site design expert for a complex, long-term project, we’d love the opportunity to be your architect.
