“If he is not licensed, you will not be able to use his drawings for your building permit application.
It was this statement I thought was misleading, and the original post did refer to a house.
I apologize for coming across so blountly. I know there are alot of draftsmen/designers and probably a few architects that aren’t as capable as myself and my associate (currently enrolled in Architecture at Auburn Univ) at designing simple or complex structures. I have attained a degree in drafing, and I have taken several civil and structural engineering courses. I also have attained my Home Builders License and am looking forward to attaining a General Contractor’s License in the near future. I am currently running a successful, residential Design/Build firm, after spending five years at an engineering firm, working on large scale industrial projects.
Again, I apoligize for coming across so blountly, part of it to, was that I felt like I was being stereo- typed, with less proficient individuals. I am aware that there are alot of people out there who can start a project, but not near as many who can finish it. I also don’t mean to come across to arrogant, I know there’s a whole lot I don’t know, even with my accomplishments at the age of 28.
P.S. Sorry I stereotyped you as an arrogant Architect.
