Architecture is the mot structured aritistic job.. pay your dues and/or find a niche and you're set.
pay sucks at first... but once you get your licence and reputation you could make a lot
average billing rates for principles around here range from 150-300 per hour (you'd get about a third of it as pay)
avarage commitions on residential are 15% of construction cost (15% to the firm split between the arch and all his subs)
a 1 mill house is around 3-6 months work giving you 150k of which you spend 1/3 on enginiers and drafters and such
a 10 mill house is typically not significantly more work but rather better materials but you still get 15%..===1.5 mill..and you enginers bills dont get inflated by material cost so you keeep a larger proportion of the cut
but of course the more money you deal with the more of it will fall in the cracks..insurance, licence fees etc.
I love fishes they’re so delicious, let’s go fishes!
