This may help. Can ask my wife some of the more technical questions if you need.

It doesn't sound like an issue at all to me. I would think you already have an idea of what you want and how the rooms will be. A good builder will be able to do the kind of drawings you/he needs anyway so I'm not sure why you need an architect. It just adds a link to the chain that you don't need imo.
If you're particular about having an architect involved then go with the one who impresses you most.
The key to all this is getting the right builder and project managing the whole thing, either by yourself or by somebody else.

Cheers Dodge - wise words. I asked him about qualifications, and this is what he said.

Quote:
In terms of qualifications I have a degree Ba arch, and a diploma, which is part 2. I have never fully got part 3, which is the final qualification with which you then become totally qualified, (so legally can't use the term architect). I have many years experience of being self employed and worked previously for large some practices. All my works have always come via recommendation, including from other architects. I have 1m of pi insurance. The only real difference to me being totally qualified is bank certification which I cannot undertake, but use a colleague to issue when necessary on our behalf. This would not be necessary on your project

I honestly don't think his insurance or further qualifications make any difference. His brief is basically a design one in this case so I don't see where it can go wrong in that instance.
Ideally, with any trade, somebody you know should have recommended them. It's not always possible but get as close as you can to it.

Yep he's been recommended, just waiting to speak to some of his former clients.

Pretty much. Kick a few windows, bang on the walls, piss on the bathroom floor.
