Anyone have any recommendations for someone that can draw up some designs for houses?

Are you planning to build here on the island? If so your plans must be drawn up by ONE of the architects on the TOWN BOARDS LIST of approved architects. I think there are only seven on the list (I may be wrong) and some are employees of the town.

Harriette - Do the plans have to be drawn by one of the Architects on the town board list, or does one of those Architects just need to put his stamp on your drawings?

Supposedly they just have to approve but the guy I hired insisted on redrawing all of mine; and mine were drawn to scale (l/4":1') on ll x 17" quadrille paper.
They all are also very busy and it takes time ($) to have them get to yours.
However, I must say the building inspector is very easy to work with.

We are looking to build on the island. So we are looking for someone that can design and then looking for builder recommendations.

You can use whomever you like to draft, design and engineer the home. Once you are done with that simply have one of the town board approved people (Ersel) turn the plan into the plans needed for the approval and have them get them approved.

Not sure that anyone has all the answers Robert. I know that I don't. Fortunately though the problems we have had have been minor ones.
