Why Should You Hire an Architect?

We’ve all done it…browsed through the section of standard floor plans in a magazine, critiquing each one against our family’s wants and needs in a home. There are literally thousands out there, some free, some for sale. The problem is that finding the perfect plan for you is like finding a needle in a haystack. If and when you do find a great plan, you have a host of other considerations to make before purchasing it including your site, local and state building code requirements, and the energy efficient materials and systems you want to include in your home.

The Log Home Directory asked Green Architect, Jeremy Bonin, for his insight on how an architect helps you incorporate all of your requirements into a green home, as well as help you with such things as site analysis, environmental studies (including wetland and shore lands), and bid negotiation – well beyond what a standard floor plan in a book can provide.

Read Jeremy’s article posted on the Log Home Directory’s website. For more information or to talk to Jeremy about your plans to build a green home and how to get started, call or email us!
