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 Croft £91,200 £9,800 £2,700
Full Self-Build    
Project Management £150 - £180 per sq.ft    
Main Contractor £180 - £220 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 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.

Although this traditional design is reminiscent of a Scottish Highland crofter’s cottage, it would be at home anywhere in the British Isles. It has a large sitting room and farmhouse kitchen and, as no cottage would be complete without an open fire, provision has been made for fireplaces both in the sitting room and the kitchen/dining room.

The first-floor bedrooms have small dormer windows, which give the front elevation a very cottagy, yet symmetrical look. The windows feature glazing bars as standard, and the optional entrance porches further enhance the exterior of this attractive cottage.
