Mogens Smed was in the construction industry as a contractor himself for over 30 years, and he always stressed doing detailed drawings until the job was done right. We agree with his excellent attitude in this area. If extra drawings are required after the permit has been issued, then we just do it, as our "by the square foot" pricing is a one-time arrangement. We can work by the square foot or by the hour depending on our clients needs.
Normally on new homes I charge by the square foot, as in my experience, it is the fairest way to assess the overall fees for service. Some clients only need me to design a fireplace elevation, or design a kitchen layout, or design a face lift to the street side of their home, and in these cases it is more fair for the client to just have me design it by the hour. Please make an appointment with me to discuss my fee structure in more detail based on your unique and specific needs.
