If you've designed the extension yourself you may need the aid of a designer or draftsperson to draw up your plans to submit them for planning approval (if required) and a structural engineer to produce drawings and calculations for Building Regs’ purposes.

Choose someone who's worked on similar projects before and understands what you're trying to achieve with the budget you have.
