We are in the process of wanting to do a detached guest house, with a basement under. We are also adding an attached RV garage to the guest house. Our house now is 1 story, and this addition will all be in the front yard area. I have the set-backs of the building envelope per the city, and need an Architect to help us with plans. I know we'll have to have someone local revise/review the plans to make sure it's all up to code, but I'm trying to save A LOT of money in hiring outside of the US, for the main work of this project.
Details: Guest house square feet: Main floor approx. ~ 1150-1400 sq ft (I do have an ideal floor plan, but I don't know if it'll fit based on set backs, so we'll have adjust it)
Basement: Approx. ~ 1500 sq ft
RV: As big as we can get it based on set backs. But I'm guessing it'll be a garage about 20'x40' (maybe?)
Current property style to carry over to addition for exterior finish (not my favorite but it needs to synchronize with rest of existing property). We will also need to redo the front yard (or what's left of it), so architectural design of left over yard, will also be helpful. I have a list of things we want for the re-do of the front yard.
I have a list of what we want, but I need you to draft a floor plan that is super FUNCTIONAL, and exceeds our expectation of flow, efficiency, and overall feel. I'm a very visual person, and need both floor plans but I also need to be able to see it, so 3D imaging would be very helpful in me grasping your concept of the project.
I have pictures of "ideas" of what we would like. I'm good at deciding whether I like something or not like something, but it's hard for me to agree or disagree on concepts if I can't see them.
Pricing and quality of work is KEY. Give me your best bid, and provide me with sample of previous work so I can see your vision.
