    Hi all, How do I go about starting the planning process for a single storey extension on my home? I want to have a small extension built to the side of the existing building, to be used an additional utility room. Shall I get quotes before having plans made or have the plans made first? Are architects able to advise me on the plans themselves? And what would be an approximate cost for an architect to produce the plans for the extension? Will I need planning permission for this extension? It will be entirely within my property boundaries. Additionally, please let me know if you have any ideas of how long this could take, how long to have quotes/plans made or any other advice for building an extension like this.

    Hi We are hoping to have an extension built onto our house. We have been recommended a local architect to speak to before getting any builder quotes, but we have also been told that a structural engineer might be all we need rather than an architect. Do we need an architect specifically or will a structural engineer be able to handle it with a hired builder to complete the work? Or even, could a builder do the job of all three?
