What To Look For When Hiring A Residential Draftsman
This Is Your Home
First things first before looking for a draftsman, you need to have an idea - even the slightest idea, of how you picture your home. You don’t need to have to present a sketch to the draftsman, that’s their job! But you should have thought about what kind of home you would want to live in. Having an idea before bringing in a draftsman also helps avoid miscommunications and going over budget. Nothing has to be set-in-stone during this stage, just penciling things in will help the process for both you and the draftsman.
Should I Hire A Draftsman Or An Architect?
This question often lingers when you’re looking for a draftsman. This is perhaps because you may still be on the fence on what the difference is and we don’t blame you. It gets a little bit more technical when you’re trying to understand what separates these two from each other
A draftsman's job is to turn your pencil drawing into a blueprint that is technical enough to be interpreted by other professionals if need be. Therefore, it is important that the draftsman you hire has the experience to do this for you. The good thing about looking for a good residential draftsman is that the work is practical which means you can see results. That’s why a way to see if their experience and the work that they do is good for you is to have a look at their portfolio. By showing you their portfolio, you can anticipate how your blueprints will turn out if you work with them - treat their portfolio as their resume and get to know them through it.
Ask Around For Quotes
Settling for the first draftsman is highly ineffective because it shuts out all your other options. Think of it like this: you’re at the fruit market and you see two apples, one of which considerably costs more than the other. What are you going to think of this? Will you take the first apple which costs more because that’s the first one you saw? Why would you take that one right? The same logic applies to looking for a draftsman for your home. Whether it is surfing through the internet or physically looking for a residential draftsman, getting quotes allows you to compare the options you have and see which one is most desirable for you. This helps as you can work within your budget and allows you to thoroughly look at the benefits and value they can add to your home.
