I am buying a 1900 sq. ft. 4br, 1.5bath colonial home. Its a diamond in the rough and my architect will be helping me design our future gem. One of the things that I will need to do is have the house surveyed (not yet the land but only the home and room dimensions). The architect can do it for around a grand but I wanted to see if this is something that I could do. He mentioned it should be down to a quarter of an inch.
Is this a difficult task? I am assuming that its something I could do but I dont want to spend the whole day doing measurements only to find out its inadequate. There is also a surveyor I found who would take care of the house surveying for $500.
Comments / opinions, feedback and advice would be tremendously appreciated. Also, if there are any links to help and get me started, please let me know.
Thanks and Cheers!
