Architect cost?
 
Hello everyone! Great site!

I have a question, I`m planning on adding one bedroom and a bathroom plus connecting the house to the garage and making a mud room. First guy out quoted me $6500. This sounds high to me.
thoughts?
I~m in Illinois btw.

thanx!

It all depends on what is involved with your addition and what is included with the drawings, diagrams, electrical, plumbing, heating-HVAC, elevations, engineering, plots, window-door schedules, smaller details. People can have a small addition, but want alot of small details in design and materials. Also, the specific area that you live in (up and coming....) can have alot to do on an architect's pricing parameters...etc....

Maybe ''COLE'' will have more to add....
