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-build, project management, use of a nominated main contractor or a combination of these methods. 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 and Window Installation
The Gables £103,175 £13,293
Full Self-Build £120 - £140 per sq.ft  
Project Management £140 - £170 per sq.ft  
Main Contractor £170 - £210 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, plasterboard screws, Swedish triple glazed windows and external doors. Also included are Swedish internal doors, skirting boards, coving, architrave, insulated loft hatch and ladder, open or closed treat staircase and mechanical ventilation system. 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 Victorian home combines the best of both worlds – British architecture and Swedish quality and engineering techniques. The white wooden entrance veranda, the decorative barge and fascia boards as well as the window glazing bars help give this house that real Victorian feel; and the internal layout is also remarkably true to the period.

A spacious kitchen/breakfast room and ensuite facilities may be slightly ahead of the time, but the pine staircase and white internal doors are contemporary Victorian features.

This compact three-bedroom design is remarkably versatile, providing comfortable, stylish family accommodation. The ground floor accommodation also incorporates a separate dining room with an attractive window bay as well as a spacious sitting room with French doors opening out onto the rear garden.
