    I just noticed your response sorry, these days as long as we are getting enough jobs to get by it is a good day. I know I now am thankful that I stayed small rather than trying to grow when I had the opportunity, the lack of overhead proved to be key in surviving. I've seen many larger firms built on a foundation of production closing their doors. I've seen some of the owners on Craigslist looking for people to do drawing work at an hourly rate because the owner didn't have an architectural background. These guys are going around telling people they are busy when I know they haven't had any work in over a year. They are just salesmen, I had to get a lawyer involved with one who was using my designs for his portfolio because he didn't have anything to put up yet he goes around meeting builders telling them he is a large firm that is very busy. We have asked him where he got his Arch Degree and he diverts the question even though he is the one telling people he has one from VT.

    Actually I'm a Residential Designer/Architect, I am Jamie of Jamie Compton Design Inc. Things started slow this year but then got 3 projects first thing this morning. The last half of 09 was busy, before that it was pretty dead. I'm watching too many builders, designers, subs and developers go under.
    Are you keeping your head above water?
