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.

Play with mixing orientations of the siding, with some sections stretching horizontally and others running vertically or diagonally. It is trendy now, but remember that if you plan to sell the home in the future, potential buyers might not applaud its unconventional look.
