House Conversions

Prices for Converting Barns etc into Houses

Q - We are negotiating to buy a derelict barn to convert into a 250 square metre house. Could you provide an approximate estimate of the likely conversion costs?

A - The state of the roof and external walls are usually the key factors in barn conversion costs. If they are in good condition the conversion costs should be to be about 60% of new build costs so that if you were building to an average standard of £1,000 per square metre, the costs would be 60% x £1,000 = £600 m2. But this figure would increase if the standard of the specification was improved. You should also budget for about £10k for paths, drains, fencing and the like.
