Is your home in need of something new? If you’re looking to expand your horizons and your living space, you may be in the market for a residential architect. If you are a resident of the St. Louis, MO, region, or anywhere in the surrounding area, J.T. McDermott Remodeling is your local stop for residential design.
But what is a residential architect? As the name would imply, a residential architect is an architect who designs buildings that will be used as dwellings. Architects create designs and proposals for their clients, making adjustments as necessary until they are satisfied.
However, the residential architect’s job doesn’t stop there. Their role is instrumental in the overall success of every residential construction job.
What Does a Residential Architect Do?
- Designing Schematics. Schematics are the draft sketches that detail the basics of a home’s design. The drawings include essential information about how the project will proceed, including ideas, needs, and budget. It may also include a site analysis. During this stage of the design, you will work with your architect, discussing your likes, dislikes, and overall vision for the project.
- Design development. The schematics provide a basis from which to create a more thorough and detailed plan. Using 3D modeling software, the architect builds blueprints for your renovation, which will include every last detail of your design – including any elements that could not be visualized in the 2D schematics.
- Construction drawings. Finally, your residential architect will draft up the construction drawings. These highly detailed and measured drawings will then be given to your contractor, who will use them to bring your vision to life. The construction drawings are also important to help the contractor acquire building permits.
The project can only move on to the building phase once the construction drawings have been completed and approved.
