Will Remnant Architecture draw the house I’ve already designed?
No, a drafter might be a better fit.

Do I need an architect for my project?
In the state of Tennessee, single-family homes and duplexes are not required to have an architect design the project. For buildings with three or more living units, of one or two stories, and less than 5,000 square feet, an architect is not required for the project either. In these cases, it is up to you what level of service you are looking for. You could draw the project yourself. You could hire a drafter to draw the design you have in mind. Typically, people who hire an architect are wanting someone to help to create a design that is aesthetically pleasing and functional because it is not something that comes naturally to them.
