Pricing

Ask My Architect is a unique method of delivering architects’ services to homeowners in an accessible, easy-to-use, customer friendly way. With Ask My Architect you can use the skills and services of your architect as much or as little as you want. Most Architects charge fees based on a percentage of the overall build value of the project (Typically 10-15% of the build value), Ask My Architect think this is unfair and charge on an area basis for specific stages of the project, breaking it down into 4 simple steps.
