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 Nantucket £221,828 £21,798
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.

To own your own home is perhaps the most fundamental ingredient of the American dream, and this New England design appears to meet many Europeans’ idea of a ‘typical’ American home.

Fully timber-clad, with a verandah running the length of the front elevation and painted in a soft pastel shade with white detailing, this large family home would surely fulfil the American dream?

The double height entrance hall is flooded with light from the windows above and welcomes you straight into the hub of the home. The Nantucket features a generous kitchen and breakfast room as well as a separate dining room, and the ground floor accommodation also includes a large sitting room, a fifth bedroom or study and an integral double garage.

The first floor accommodation incorporates four bedrooms, two with en–suite facilities as well as a family bathroom.
