I'm in two minds about the involvement of architects. Being a builder sometimes what they draw doesn't relate in the real world hence why they have draftsman.
In saying that having a well documented drawing like JBO has stated is worth every cent.
I had a teacher who refused to work on a job if the architect was the SA/PM as he believed they didn't understand the day to day running of an actual site. I personally haven't worked with them as a PM so can not comment.

Like I have said in a previous post the current architect I'm using to build these hospital projects is exactly what I'm talking about. Everything documented to an inch of its life but still lets my guys on the ground make calls when things are just not going to work and we have to stick to extremely specific guidelines.

I know an architect that has designed some overseas hospitals, they have to be incredibly detailed for obvious reasons.  Houses are much different, hence find an architect that can be as detailed as possible.  The last build I did I had to call the architect only once, and on site all he said was what I told the tradesman - have you checked the drawings - they were so detailed that there cold be no second guessing of how the details had to be finished.

repost!!!!

Never understood why cars are shown in photos?

Just gives a thief an idea what's behind the door.

That skinny kitchen would get very tiring very quickly.
