For any building project to become a reality, it must be affordable, even if it is an estimate. The project needs to be financed, whether you have the funds available, or if you need to borrow some or all, every aspect of the project cost needs to be covered.
The best way of finding out some initial budgeting costs would be to contact your local architect or building contractor, who will more than likely have had recent experience of a similar project, or may be able to introduce you to someone who has. The major thing to take into account is that there are many different types of buildings, and full scope of the work and type of materials needed before costs can be calculated.
For example, particular consideration would need to be given to:
- Houses built of stone or materials other than brick or block
- Houses with special design features
- Houses of a particularly high quality
- Houses of larger than average size
- Property with more than two storeys, or with basements and cellars
- Houses containing hazardous materials, e.g. asbestos
- Flats, because types of construction vary considerably, as do responsibilities for common or shared parts
- Houses that fall under listed building categories or are in conservation areas and deemed historic. These will almost certainly have to include materials that match the original in quality and age, or at least made to exact dimensions.
