You could “re-draw” the plans on paper with full size or larger squares (you might have to make you own grid), then copying by hand the lines square by square. I have used this method by overlaying a picture of a object (of known dimensions) with a grid so I can re-draw the outline on a larger grid.

Another way is to scan it into a computer and then expand the drawing to the size you want and print it out. That may end up too large for one sheet of paper so it will be printed on several sheets of paper that you can join together.
