If I buy a two-storey stone house which needs the wooden floors,
staircase, upstairs floors/joists all removed (so basically left with
four external walls, internal stone walls, and a roof), would an
architect be required in order to replace all floor joists and wooden
floors (upstairs & down), and replace staircase?
Or could you I to the builders I want everything stripped out, but
simply rebuilt in the same current layout with new materials? Or would
architect plans be required?
