Meet the architect

Category: Barn Conversion Journal July 19th, 2006 by mbc

I’ve always fancied the idea of engaging an architect (if I’m honest, inspired by Kevin Mc of TV fame), so I went to speak to one today.

My route in was the RIBA website (Google RIBA), which offers a referral service. Of the three on my list I managed to speak to two (one of whom chased me on a Friday night which is a refreshing role reversal).

I went to meet the first of them today and can’t say I was disappointed. I found the experience confidence building and somewhat inspirational. I now feel a whole lot more certain about the project. Although the costs seem to keep growing (the architects ‘cut’ around 14% of the total build) the project as a whole seems more achievable.

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…
