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 Chiddingstone £230,230 £26,180 £6,160
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.

A popular chalet bungalow style design, there’s a feeling of space that greets you as you enter this home. A view to the outside area at the rear can be seen through the dining hall, via glazed double doors, down through the lower level sitting room and out from the sunroom. The back of this property is filled with light due to the multiple sliding doors and is a perfect area for enjoying the garden.

The Chiddingstone can be equipped initially as a single-storey home, leaving the option to move into the first floor at a later stage, and the optional sun room shown on the plans can be added to any design. The ground floor layout incorporates three bedrooms and a study, as well as a kitchen with dining hall and a large sitting room. The first floor includes two double bedrooms, two bathrooms as well as a landing or sitting area. It also offers the option of further expansion into the loft space above the sitting room.
