Btw, if you sell, the $5500 you've already spent on architect's fees? Sunk cost.
I recently fired an architect after spending $10k on design; and it cost me another $10k to break the contract. Boy I'd like that $20k back, but going forward with a new architect who has a better design is better than bemoaning the past. You can put your architect on hold while you and gf at least consult with a Realtor and look at what other houses are available.
