Once you have made the final decision to spend a fortune on that dream home, the first step is to decide whether your house will be designed by an engineer or an architect. First of all, it's important to understand why it's important to hire a professional in the first place. 

For starters, in most countries, you actually need to hire an “architect cottage professional” (which is also known as ”arkitekt hytte profesjonell” in the Norwegian language) because the basic requirement is to be able to stand up without collapsing. 

However, there are several things that make a house like that and it takes an engineer or an architect to design it. Everything from the type of door frame you use to something as important as a plinth is the thing that makes everything in this world different. They really want a professional to trust you with all of these things. 

In order to know exactly which one fits your needs better, it's important to understand exactly what these two professions involve. Engineers are people who are licensed by the state to have a solid understanding of the engineering field in which they specialize. 

In this case, you will most likely seek the help of a civil engineer. A civil engineer specializes in understanding the dynamics of a structure. Architect, on the other hand, is a superset of a civil engineer. Most architects have deep construction knowledge. 

In addition, they have been trained over the years to understand exactly how the various components of the home affect the mood, psyche, and emotions of the people in them. They are trained in aesthetics and this is the main reason people prefer architecturally designed houses.
