You should offer compensation when you request something of value.
You benefit from a good design for many years.
Why should the designer work for free?
"There ain't no such thing as a free lunch."
That said, perhaps you do not need complete architectural services? Perhaps you need only design counselling, where you pay by the quarter hour for help figuring out your needs, what is appropriate for your site and schematic sketches and guidelines to take to a competent builder. A good builder can then help you develop the schematic design according to your budget and his or her in-depth knowledge of local craftspeople and suppliers. You can enlist the help of your design counsellor as needed during that process.
Upstate NY is beautiful!
