    Based on the amount of education necessary, architects don't make that much anyway.

    I need a bird feeder for my backyard and my kids would love a tree house. Let the bids begin. I'll start at $100. Anyone offer designs for less?

      If you have to pay for plans for a bird feeder, you really need help.

        I'm stimulating the economy with worthwhile offers, unlike the Washington plans.

          No you're not. You are trying(successfully) to show how stupid you can be. This is not the place to post a job offer. There are plenty of architects listed in the phone book. Give any of them a call, and I'm sure they'll be happy to charge you $250.00 for a set of plans for a $10.00 bird feeder.

          I am only looking to spend $100 maximum for a treehouse design AND bird feeder. Though if anyone will draw for less I am open to bids.

    Of course there is high unemployment for architects. How many buildings, homes or offices are being built or remodeled right now? How many are being planned in the next year? Also the information in the report is over a year old, and with the economy(maybe) starting to recover these things will be increasing and architects will become more needed. It doesn't take am economist to realize that when the real estate market crashed, the need for architects, construction workers, and other home building jobs declined. As the real estate market recovers, these jobs will come back.
