This architect was selected by the contractor. She was professional and I provided style preferences which she incorporated into the drawings. The roughs were fine altho' the contractor caught that the master bath plan did not have quite enough space between the tub and a wall which surprised me in that I thought an architect would get a detail like that. The contractor submitted the final drawings to the city prior to letting me see them and some things had changed from the roughs I approved. I do not know if this was requested by the contractor or the architect made the changes nor do I know why. Thus, I've lowered the doing the work properly rating a bit. It was possible to make adjustments after this part of the process and on some things, we did. I'd suggest being clear up front about when final drawings are "final" and the homeowner has written approval prior to submitting for permits.
