Re: Re: My architect won’t listen to me.
Have you all sat down and discussed the situation through calmly and clearly? It would be far better to sort it out among yourselves. Two issues have to be sorted out, money and design.
No more monies should be handed over before both are dealth with. Ive seen this before and a nice long chat normally sorts it out. He had his reasons for the proposed design let him explain them. Im sure he was acting for your best interests.
I would be fairly sure that he will take on board your ideas and listen to what you have to say from here, however if not, change architect.
It is not uncommon to pay for architectural services in advance by the way. There are practices however who do not require cash up front.
