How much will it cost to build my own house, or to renovate my old house. Can I afford to pay for the barn conversion? How about adding a loft conversion to my property?
The table below gives an idea of the average prices for house building we have received. It is recommended that these are used only as a rough guide and a you put a lot of research into building a house (particularly on costs) before you begin.
The size of the house is the interior floorspace (upstairs and downstairs for a 2 storey house).
The building costs per square metre can vary hugely depending on the quality of build. By quality we mean how much extra is spent on that expensive kitchen or plumbing or fancy brickwork or slate roof, etc, not whether the build is rubbish or not.
The links on the left hand side take you to more dedicated pages that show in detail the prices we have had submitted.
Price Range* - Depending on the amount of data we have we may not have a price range only a single entry! You can help.
We will keep refining this page and adding new prices as we get them.
"Hi With regard to house building costs you obviously havent got a clue what you are talking about."
"Hi am a student taking BSC Quantity Surveying. My question is that are you only dealing with Houses only? What about larger Building such as Hotel and Office? Does the prices applied also?"
"very good information as im and student studing brickwork, all the infomatin is here, it would be better if you had the prices all away though "
"Updated with suggestions. Thanks again."
"I was surprised that there was no indication of the date that these costs were calculated therefore the information is essentially worthless"
"Thanks. I'll review the prices we have on this matter. However, I would disagree that the prices shown are out by 50%! Depending on the quality of the fixtures and fittings and materials used there can be a 100% variation in per metre squared costs (or more...) but whilst the displayed prices are perhaps a little low, I do not believe they are that low. I'll look at implementing a displayed range instead of an average as I think that'll help clarify things up. If you have any specific prices try our feedback form or email us through our contact address. Thanks very much for the feedback."
"your avarage cost per metre sq. are far to low to be realistic, no allowance has been made for plans, building control, engineers fees, energy calcualtions. based on you cost the materials and labour are about about 50% belowe a true cost per meter of £850 to £1400 excluding any VAT. "
