Need an architect for bath/kitchen remodel
My wife and I are planning to completely remodel our old kitchen and nearby bathroom next year and would very much appreciate any recommendations for an architect who is talented in this type of project. He/she should be friendly, reliable, creative, have a positive attitude and put the clients preferences first without being "pushy" for their own. We would prefer someone who is self-employed or with a very small firm rather than a large office and would charge by the hour in the range of $100-$150/ hour. Our house is in Oakland so it would require a knowledge of the local building codes. Many thanks for your assistance as it is appreciated.
