As built or as not to built, this is the question?

Were doing an addition to our house, mainly a new kitchen. But included in our wish list is a set of french doors and we must move the washer and dryer to a new location outside the main house. I had a highly recommend contractor come over to take a look. After going over our "wish list" he said the way to proceed is to make a "as built" set of drawings of the property with set-backs, electrical, etc. He does the drawings work himself and charges $50 an hour. Says the entire preliminary drawing could cost up to approx. $5000. My head hurt for awhile and I am just not clear on the best way to proceed. I know we cannot afford all the work we want to get done. I know we are willing to work with cabinetry from places such as IKEA or Home Depot, if that really makes a difference. I know I want to have everything up to code and work with permits on the job. I know my head hurts. I started my own overview house plan using Google SketchUp and the help of this very forum, but it is very preliminary and I am not sure if I am up to making it a complete drawing with gas, elec, plumb, etc that would be necessary for the final job drawings. What I am asking for is help on how to wrap my head around this project. Am I being naive to think that this can all be done without spending 5K on drawings alone? What else am I missing here?? Thanks, Henry
