Ok, so looking at getting a straightforward two story extension done. The last time I did this, in London, a very nice older bloke, one man band type bloke came round. Went way, came back after a week or two with beautiful hand drawn, old fashioned drawings that told any prospective builders what to do. He did the planning permission thingy with the council (we paid the council their ransom money), got it into building control (again we paid their ransom money), all for around the 500 quid mark.
fast forward ten or so years, this time in the wilds of Yorkshire, an architectural firm, local, want well north of 2 grand for this. Ffs.
Back on the phone.
Does anyone have a ballpark figure of what I should expect to pay?

The long saga in the persuit of a new cheap car (yeah I know, comes with free unicorn); the next instalment.
so, long story short, 20 percent discount offered on new mini through car wow. Local stealer (best price is equidistant) phoned me following a test drive I did with them in the early summer. Could match (not beat note) carwow. I requested a test drive as I'd only tried the diesel and want a petrol. All arranged, did not have one but would get hold of one. This was over a week ago.
Turned up today. No petrol to test drive
oh well, I knew what I wanted but took a countryman out instead. Sat down to do the deal. Three fucking hours later they could not match the carwow deal. Tried every trick in the book to bamboozle me. Tricks too numerous to mention, I just kept bringing them back to the carwow quote which I happened to have on my iPad in front of me.
Idiots. I feel like billing them for my time.
