well, i feel we have a pretty exact idea of what we want done in terms of the layout. we just need someone to draw the plans up and work towards being approved for the inspections and getting permits etc...
I would say 7-8k is affordable.

I have used Scott Schnall for this type of thing: we had an exact idea of what we wanted; he had the plans drawn up, approved by DoB, and lined us up for all inspections. We got a C of O out of it. He's not an architect (he's a professional engineer), and he definitely has a "unique" approach to customer service. But he's a really good expeditor.
His number is 718-875-2036. He is open Monday - Thursday, and it's best to call early (like 7 a.m.)

I think the critical thing to understand is what is required to file and what is required to build are two different things. Scotts great, but there are miles of details that someone will have to figure out and when there is a question about a saddle detail or whatever, hes not the guy. Its not brain surgery, but ultimately coordination has to be done by someone and that someone will want to get paid. Also, the better the documents the easier the contractors life is in executing. There are a lot of ways to skin the cat and I understand there are a ridiculous amount of expenses to execute simple work in NYC, but realize that you get what you pay for.

My clients have hired a few different architect/expediters who have gotten jobs filed quickly at reasonable costs, all of whom work in Brooklyn. Email me if you would like their contacts.
