anyone had experience with an architect?
We have a lot of ideas on what could maybe make our old house work better. There's nothing special about it and there is a lot of wasted space. I'm thinking it might be a good idea to get an architect to come in and work over ideas or make better ones or tell us if something is a bad idea. However, like many here, we aren't going to have a contractor come in and gut the whole floor, etc etc. We'll be going 1 room at a time, much of the work ourselves. At this point we don't need detailed drawings ready for inspection, we just need ideas that could make our house work better. Will architects do this, paid of course. I took a look at Angies list but all the reviews there were for much more work then we are looking to do.
