Hiring an architect to produce working drawings
First, I am new to this site; thank you for your wonderful and extensive services! I am planning to construct an 800 sf strawbale house (post & beam with infill). I will contract the work myself, as well as do much of the work myself.
I do have some drafting experience, as well electrical and plumbing. I have the time and can do much of the working drawings myself; I have no problem with working with the state (I live in New Mexico) engineer getting everything right in order to obtain my permit.
But I am NOT a pro here; do you think I should be seriously considering hiring an architect who specializes in strawbale? I recently just got quoted a price of $3,000 + for drafting up drawings for my design.

I will not be able to finish my deck for months but would like to get a final inspection signed off.
