Ball park 137m2 build cost

Recommended Posts

Looking good. 

 

Any surprises due to the madness recently with material price increases or did you lock in the price?

Thank-you,

No surprises yet, last main item on the list is roof slate.

Awaiting clearance from national park from samples.

Im going to email the supplier today to see what lead times are like.

Price wise hopefully no changes apart from the tweaks we are making as we go.

Up to DPC, going to use a lighter mortar for the rest of it with either V or raked out joint to show off the edges off the brick work

Think we are going to stick with gas boiler set up for now after further thought.

Concerned about the noise from the fan on the ASHP.

Not really the overall dB but the pitch, think it would be unfair on the neighbours

Block working finally started after poor weather halted things on site.

Not looking great next week either so progress maybe slow

More progress!

Really pleased with the brick choice and decision to go with a raked out mortar joint, hopefully mortar will dry light grey.

 

Rooms looking a good size now walls are up.

Ready for scaffold now to get to chamber joist level, been lucky with the weather this week as was showing rain all the way through but been mostly dry.

Few days delay on the chamber joists due to availability I believe.

 

Been and ordered a Charnwood burner today and planned the fire place so that’s all sorted and paid for.

 

Bricks/ mortar dark in the pictures as looks like they had been washed down today.

Evening,

No problem, we are using Silverwoods construction limited.

They have a really good reputation locally and nothing is too much bother.

Highly recommend so far

Thank you so much for reference. Have you got quotes after submitting building regulations or did you got any tweaked drawings from architect before it self for less price. Is the builder is referenced by any one or did you researched any other way

Got guide price before submitting regs as it’s a fairly basic build.

Didn't want to waste money on regs if it was going to be way over budget.

Only thing tweaked was garage size, was meant to be 7x6m internal but to stay in budget made it 7x6m external.

Reference was from a lady at our sons school, they had completed 2 holiday let new builds.

Also came recommended by a he local architect
