It depends on the surveyor and how busy they are. I would suggest that you contact the company directly.

Does the type of roofing effect the resale value of a house?
Yes it does at least here in Florida. Here in Florida tile and metal roofs are the most expensive compared to shingle. That reflects on the value of the home.

"Leave one wall up" buildng option. Good or bad idea?
Hi Oscar:

WHAT IS THE GENERAL COST TO TURN A 2 CAR GARAGE INTO A 3 (WITH NEW ADDITION SMALLER)?
Anytime you add to the original floor plan could be quite costly, if that is your concern. It isn't the same as modifying the original plan.
