The brief for our draftsman

Integrate the old with the new and create a sustainable family friendly home. Keep the existing ceiling heights throughout. New extension to include two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and living areas. So far so good, the plans only took a few weeks to finalise with only a few amendments along the way. Townsville City Council approved the drawings. Now we are in the process of selecting the builder. We placed the plans on Building Industry Online which has generated a lot of interest from local builders. So far we have received half a dozen quotes and expect to receive another 6 or so in the next week. So hopefully by the end of the month we will be closer to signing a contract and closer to commencing the build. Any tips on selecting a builder?
