  1. Hi guys, Our Architect is proposing a Schedule of Works and looking to charge a fee of £550 plus VAT per package as there will be no main contractor. Is this something i really need? Cheaper alternative or do myself? I have no idea what this entails so hoping you can help me out. Background - Planning permission granted. 2 Build systems - ICF Basement with Timber Frame above. Cheers Al
  2. Here it is: as accurate as I can get it. No pretense of getting it done cheaper than anyone else. Just the raw numbers and a few words to explain context if necessary (why did I buy a chain-hoist for example). Yes, you'll probably get it cheaper. That's excellent. The point is openness and telling it like it is. March 2014 Home Building and Renovation Show NEC: £100, including fuel and tickets Phone calls about £15:00 extra, and about £70:00 fuel.

Projected cost £568.65 (May 2015) August 2015 Architects fees £2000; from award of Outline PP to Full PP (6th of August) and £40 for bottle of champagne to thank our him: his judgement in relation to what would pass was exactly right.
