I've been on before about the barn I'm planning to convert - and I was
hoping for a little mroe advice (thanks all for advice so far!). Just
had a guy come round to look at the barn (he is known by the
structural engineer who is going to help with the planning of the
conversion). He has quoted me £450 to draw the barn for the planning
submission - with detail of how it currently stands and how it will
Is the price about right? I don;t care much for £100 but if I thought
I could get the job done for £200, I'd be worried!
Thanks in advance

autocad packages decided to leave it to the experts!
Thanks all for your advice - seems to be a reasonably good deal!
Mine is costing 1000 for planning and 600 for building regs. The advantage of
paying more for planning is that they guy has done all the building regs work,
so we know we can build what we grt planning for. Last job I did, we got
planning for something that would not pass building regs, cost me a fortune in
fixing it up later.
My quotes ranged from this price, up to the sky ...........
