A good architect is essential to the design of your custom home. During my career, I have found that the ones who are good listeners are best able to translate the client’s desires into a successful design. It’s sort of a follow, not lead approach. Good architects are also students of the industry. In the home building business, the pace of change can be rather dramatic with new products, new techniques and new design trends popping up all the time. I was breezing through Custom Home Online recently and came across an interesting feature…Shopping with an Architect. If you’re contemplating a new home or even a remodeling project, you might find this feature helpful. Enjoy!
