Need Licensed Texas Architect to Stamp Plans on Occasion

Recommended Posts

Once in a while I am hired to work in a small township that requires a licensed architect's stamp on the plans. I have a builder set of plans that I have been asked to do that would need an architect's help.

Will an Engineer stamp work, I do that on every project, plus you might need an Engineer anyway.

It's worth pointing out that "plan stamping" (even if the architect reviews the plans) can lead to an architect losing his/her license. If you are getting paid by the builder, and then paying a fee to the architect for the stamp, then that architect is violating the Texas Architectural Practice Act. I'm not saying you won't find someone to do it, just that a licensed architect who would stamp someone else's plans doesn't have a lot of common sense.

That's why an engineer works, he will do the calculations for lateral and check the beam sizes for you .You are then free to design away. That's the way I have done it for 40 plus years. no problems

      We are a professional couple, husband is a computer engineer and wife is an artist (www.adelaandea.com ). We have acquired 1.5 acres of land in Houston area, Texas and we are looking to build a home. We have started to play with Chief Architect to create the floor-plan layout, then added a bit on the roof and so on, until we got stuck due to knowledge limitation.
       
      We looking for an architect / designer to help us complete the plans for a new residential house. I have a starting point for the plans (see attached file).
       
      Goal / Specs
      Current plans are for a single-story home, around 3900 sqft, 4 bd, 2.5 bth.
      We are looking for a “modern” feel for the house
      In the current plans I have a few less common features like
      -          Entrance hall, living room and one more room have 18ft ceilings, rest of the house is at 11 ft
      -          One room have very large spans (26ft x 27ft)
      -          Roof is very shallow, 2/12.
      -          We are trying to use the roof / top of the kitchen as a terrace
      -          We would like for the roof to extend over the entrance and backyard to create a shaded area.
       
      I am looking for someone to take the current plan, clean it and refine it to be suitable for construction (e.g. framing). The current plan has “defects” due to constant changes that we made to the plan (e.g. some walls do not align properly)
      We are NOT looking to furnish the interior. We are primary interested into the house shell(walls, foundation, roof, windows etc.). We are foregoing even the storage closets for the time being. Some of the “missing” points are: cleanup default materials, adjust the roof support, fix the walls, additional work on windows (ideas for windows design so it looks modern), the external stairs and anything else that a regular person would miss when playing with Chief Architect (e.g. mechanical room size? attic ?, doors too close ? code violations? )
       
      As for time-frame, we would like to complete these plans within a month or so, if possible. We are ready to start the construction on the lot this summer.
       
      Thank you !
