Some folks need to have the entire house drawn up first, with a list of materials, cost-planning and all, before they can start building a story. These are the architects who may or may not do a little gardening on the side. There is nothing to say that one can't do or be both, of course. I mean, think of all those gardeners that plan the garden in advance up to the smallest detail, right? And there are plenty of architects that make changes as they go after realizing that the original blueprint just doesn't work in the real world.
Which one are you? Or are you both?
