I am debating the same thing. I have worked up plans on my own, but I do need to bring in a structural engineer, as you do, to make certain it is possible (load bearing potential must exist on the present footings or new ones have to go in). Be very careful with your design, as it must flow seamlessly with the rest of your home in order for it to not only look good from the outside, but work well on the inside for future salability (I know you may not be thinking in those terms right now, but there will come a time when you do or have to).
Good Luck!!!!
