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 Cuboid £231,500 £23,600 £8,000
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.

This aptly named contemporary house is startlingly simple in its lines and finishes; and its interior fully meets the criteria of today’s open-plan living.

Whether entering the house via the link from the carport or via the entrance hall, you first come into the kitchen/breakfast area, the hub of the home. The flow of the design then takes you to the dining room, through the snug with its central woodburning stove, and into the sitting room.

This bright room is given an additional dimension and feeling of space through its double storey height and the glazing to both floors will bring light to the whole house on even the dullest day. The first floor comprises 3 double bedrooms, one with en suite facilities, as well as a large separate bathroom and there is a small feature balcony off the first floor landing above the entrance doors. The area over the double carport contains a large guest suite, hobby room, study or office – to suit your own preferences and requirements.
