House plans

Hi guys.

I'm wondering what's the average cost for an architect to draw up house plans for a basic 3 bed house?

Tia.

Hello! did you get plans drawn up or any quotes? Looking to get plans for a 3/4 bedroom basic bungalow too.
TIA!

Not sure nowadays who can or can’t call themselves an architect. I’m sure it would be quite expensive to get an architect with full degree in architecture to do a one off design, but an engineer or architectural technician would be less so.
I came across a book by this guy a few years ago - basically a book with many different house designs. If one suited your needs, you bought the full set of plans etc off him, but more reasonable than a bespoke design. Not sure how much they cost (or how long ago it was - May be a bit dated) as in the end we didn’t use him. But it seemed like a good idea to me

The title Architect is still a protected title.
