I personally have downloaded plans from various sites but to print them out is quite a process. It requires a lot of paper and ink and then the work to fit the pieces all together.

Here in the Hamilton area there are a number of places that would take your plans either in hard copy or computer file and enlarge or shrink the plans to what ever you need at very reasonable prices, only pennies per sq. foot! It would make life a whole lot simpler for you to have it done this way and avoid the frustration of having to do it on a small computer printer! Just a personal preference but hopefully will give you an easier alternative.
