I guess then you could talk with a Genral Contractor early, the only problem is that those guys never give you accurate figures unless you get a full writeup. They also won’t give you a full writeup unless you have your financing lined up for a project, then all their quotes will be based on the ammount you’ve financed. It’s really hard to get any details you can trust at this point until money is involved but maybe this site may help: http://www.123flip.com/blog it’s got a few budget plans. As far as structural changes, getting a pro is essential, you won’t get accurate and relevant advice on structural stuff until you commit to the project (just as advice) so take the input you get with a grain of salt… I’ve done a few projects myself, but passing inspections requires a bit more qualification than I have, so I usually check with my General contractor who is the structural engineer.
