Cost of an architect to manage the project ?


For an upcoming extension on my home, i have been planning to have the architect run the project too (i dont have the time or skill to show up every other day... )

The cost of the project is about $400-$500k.

I expected this might cost me another $10k-$20k but a friend has just told me that it can add up to 40% to the ENTIRE project as the builder will charge more too.

So let me know if you know if this could be true, and if you have had an architect run your own project, if it was worth it and what it costed you.
