Beginning a renovation... where to start?

2 months ago

We are looking at beginning a renovation of our Californian Bungalow; specifically to build two bedrooms into our attic space. We’ve had a builder out to inspect + see if it’s possible (which it is), but I guess we’re both a bit confused as to what steps to take next.... do we go to a draftsman for plans (builders have drawn a rough sketch with dimensions); do we get a structural engineer in before the plans; or should we get another builder through to have a look? The builder we got through was lovely and comes recommended but didn’t give us a ballpark figure. Who generally gives an idea of how much bringing a plan to life will cost?
