An architect will always be trained in building contract law. At the construction stage of your project, it is useful to have a building contract set up and administered by a third party. Its a useful record that helps you to manage all aspects of the relationship between you and your builder. The inevitable decision-making path ahead and discussions regarding payments are all taken care in one big document, before any work has been completed. An architect, who will have intimate knowledge of the design and detail of your project, is perfectly positioned to draw this contract up.
What do architectural drawings do? Convey visual information about the design of buildings. This much is certain. They do much else besides. They can be idiomatic and ideological, they can express the personality of those who make them and by whatever means—charcoal, pencil, pen, or computer program. They can inspire, provoke and radicalize. They might be realistic or the stuff of fantasy. Or, of course, they can instruct those charged with building a three-dimensional representation of what they see on paper or, in recent years, on computer screens. Intelligence visible, they can also be art.
Mixed materials on the same plane are becoming standard, especially on the front of the home. Texture is trendy, and that is what mixed siding is all about. The trend is the result of the recent shift toward home exterior designs complimenting the natural environment. And we do not mean log cabins are popping up on every corner. We are talking about contemporary exteriors with a rustic charm. This is achieved using different styles of the same siding, such a combination of shiplap and cedar shake siding, in the same color. Using vinyl with stone or brick accents, for example, is another approach that instantly lends to a more custom, high end feel without the price tag of natural stone.
The right building materials impact the outcome of a project perhaps more than any other factor. From countertops, to flooring, paneling, and facades, these surfaces determine not only the look and feel of your home, but how you interact with it. For this reason, selecting high-quality surfaces is crucial.
