Northern New Jersey consultant
Hello there. We’re looking to renovate our house, which is a 1950s Cape Cod. We’re planning to add a full second story, change the layout of the ground floor, and potentially the basement (if it can’t be salvaged, and if we decide it’s worth it to insulate it). My brother-in-law is an architect, and the firm he works for typically designs homes far more expensive than ours (they recently finished a $150 million house in Florida). We’re confident he’d do a good job, and be able to achieve our vision, and there’s a lot of family pressure to hire him. The thing is, I’m unable to get an idea of how well he’d execute on my vision of something along the lines of a pretty good house. Is it reasonable to hire a consultant to work alongside him? Any recommendations for the northern New Jersey area? Thanks!
