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 Chamonix £280,324 £21,368 £9,702
Full Self-Build    
Project Management £200 - £240 per sq. ft    
Main Contractor £240 - £290 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.

This alpine-looking chalet has been named after the French ski resort, Chamonix. The design meets most of the criteria for a contemporary home, including vast areas of glass, steep rooflines with vaulted ceilings, a sweeping staircase and gable head balconies.

The open-plan ground floor living areas include a large kitchen and family room, a double height dining area, flooded with light from a bank of roof lights above, and a generous sitting room featuring large patio doors as well as space for a modern woodburning stove.

The first floor features the master bedroom, with en suite facilities, as well as two additional double bedrooms and a second bathroom. All three bedrooms have access onto the attractive, glazed gable head balconies.

The ground floor also incorporates a study and a utility room and, as can be seen from the plans, the roofline at the side of the utility room has been extended to provide a useful, covered parking space.
