Dear PoP – Recommend an Architect


Photo by PoPville flickr user mediaslave

“Dear PoP,

I really need your help. I am trying to make my basement apartment legal with DC. Unfortunately the information on the ‘rentmydcbasement.com’ website is no longer valid now that M Rupert is not with DCRA. So DCRA is requiring full architectural drawings of the house as part of the C of O process. Can you please ask your readers for recommendations for architects who do this work and are familiar with DCRA requirements? I’m also curious how much the fee is to get the drawings? Surely some of your readers have been in the same boat as I am now in!”

Has anyone recently gone through this process? How expensive are the drawings? If you know of any architects and have their phone number please leave in comments.
