It will take about a day or so for the designer to develop a written proposal for your approval. It will include the work to be done, time to do so and costs.

If you accept the proposal, you will be required to purchase a PDF of the unmodified plan before work will begin. That will be sent to you as a basis to discuss your changes with the designer.

The designer will later submit artwork of the modifications. That will include sketches of the front, side and rear elevations. That also will include outlines of the floor plans and new foundation if requested.
