    Cost of Plans for Extension to garage 8th Mar 12 at 7:44 PM
    I've just had a local builder get his relative to draw up plans to have my garage extended. The relative is not a qualified architect but has done this sort of work before. But the plans are very basic (don't include plans of the house just the garage being extended) and he thinks the plans won't have to be submitted for planning permission. He's widening the existing garage by 2m and the length of the garage is about 7m. The total for measuring up and drawing the plans couldn't have taken more than a day but he is charging 450 for doing it. This seems expensive. Anyone have any thoughts? I live in Devon so not expecting London prices.
