1. begin by googling + yellow pages "Architects" to see what services each offers, cull out those that do not specialize in your type project (e.g. residential), then if obvious, try to seek smaller firms to avoid being placed with a novice, draftsman or in-training as point man.

2. research prime candidates with local BBB on line

3. find on line your state's licensing board, again research those candidates remaining to seek if in good standing = dues up to date, continuing ed. OK, etc.

4. now you can phone the ones still standing and explain your project in brief, Q&A from both sides, ask to have promo literature sent you to "sleep on"

5. at least one candidate interview is now apropos, some of this should be gratis, bring as much as your design folder as possible but ... why overwhelm the architect with a pile 3" thinck that hasn't been culled & refined?

6. by-the-hour arragements with a firm's Owner would be ideal; not any risk=profit built into your fees, plenty of time afforded you if sticky issues arise, best tailored outcome



BTW, since this was quizzed a year ago, this might be coming too late to help. What DID you do?
