The total cost of the project (including building set, shell erection and construction) will depend on site conditions as well as on your final specification and your chosen method of construction, i.e. self project management, use of a nominated main contractor. For further details please see our Fact Sheets.

To assist you in assessing the overall cost of the project, a ‘rule of thumb’ guide, based on the various procurement routes mentioned above, would be:

  Cost of Building Set Cost of Shell Erection Cost of Window Installation
The Cedars £182,736 £19,140 £4,510
Full Self-Build    
Project Management £180 - £220 per sq. ft.    
Main Contractor £220 - £275 per sq. ft.    

These estimated square foot prices are inclusive of building set, shell erection, window fit and construction costs. The price includes delivery to mainland site. The building set includes the timber frame with a fully boarded roof, insulation, 15mm plasterboard, triple glazed windows and external doors. Also included are offload charges, internal doors, skirting boards, architrave, insulated loft hatch and ladder (if applicable), open or closed tread staircase, mechanical ventilation system and all fixings and tapes required. The estimate assumes standard foundation requirements and a good, above average specification of finishing materials. It does not include any external works, connecting to utilities or associated professional fees.

The Cedars design has derived its name from the suggested use of cedar cladding to the upper half of the front elevation, as depicted in this brochure. However, as with all Scandia-Hus homes, the external finishes can be varied to suit your taste and preferences, be this brick, block and render, tile hanging, timber cladding or stone – or indeed a mixture of finishes.

The ground floor accommodation includes a spacious, open-plan kitchen, dining area and family room, as well as a large sitting room with a feature fireplace and a separate study.

The double storey height entrance hall is flooded with light from above through full height windows and roof lights. The house features one single and three double bedrooms, the master bedroom with en suite facilities.

The Cedars design can be built with or without the double garage shown on the plans to fit onto a narrower plot, if applicable.
