I have designed a house (in Google Sketch Up) that I intend to build. I have not insignificant relevant experience, but I'm neither an engineer nor an architect. Can I just give my design to any old architect and have them turn it into a coherent blueprint for a house that won't collapse? How much should I expect a thing like that to cost?

For clarification, this is a very modern-style A-frame. Lots of glass, etc. so I have very little idea of the tolerances and code that would apply to the structure I want to build.
