A spacious 3-bedroom house can measure up to 200/sqm, but it usually measures between 120 and 150 square meters. The cost of a 3-bedroom house plan typically runs from R3000 / plan to R9000 / plan, averaging at R6000 / plan.

Draftsperson — per hour fee
Average cost R700 / hour
Cost range R500R900 / hour

A draftsperson creates blueprints for designing new homes and additions to existing ones. He prepares architectural plans and technical drawings. A draftsperson can charge by the hour or by the square metre (see below). A set of plans for a typical 3-bedroom house takes at least 10 hours to complete. The size and the complexity of the project will also have an impact on the price. Hiring a draftsperson to do a simple house plan is still cheaper than having an architect do it—they can charge up to twice as much. Draftsperson costs range between R500 / hour and R900 / hour with an average of R700 / hour.

Architect fee — per hour
Average cost R1350 / hour
Cost range R900R1800 / hour

Most architects will work for either an hourly rate or for a fixed fee based on a percentage of the construction costs. Typical fees range from 5% to 15% of construction costs for new construction, and from 15% to 20% for remodelling. Often it is difficult to estimate the cost of construction. The alternative is to charge per hour. According to SACAP a Registered Professional Architect with more than ten years’ experience, can charge roughly R1 800 per hour. For an architect, expect to pay between R900 / hour and R1800 / hour.

Divide the rooms with dry walking from floor to roof 3. Each bathroom will have a shower, toilet and basin 4. Insert a window into a side wall Note 1 the garage has a thatch roof so dry walking has to go all the way to the apex Note 2 the existing side door will remain although it currently is on the side wall not the back wall as shown in the image. Note 3 the plumping runs down the side of the garage Note 4 there is electrics and water existing in the garage Note 5 the property is in Komatipoort although I live in centurion
