Demo day on one of our Berwyn projects.
People often ask what it takes to become an architect - How many years of school? Experience? Exams? And most are surprised to hear that it takes most architects about ten years of school, training, and testing to get registered.
“But why so long? It’s not like you’re saving lives like doctors! “
Well, here it is: on this project, we are tearing the roof off this home, displacing the owners, and spending a good bit of their money on an addition. We are literally ripping apart their home, and we don’t take this work lightly.
So yes, I’m glad I’ve been studying architecture for the last twenty years, and I’m grateful to have a top notch design team to back me up. This is some serious stuff, and we got it.
It also helps to have an experienced contractor on the job 😀
