as per title

how much do builders charge to build a house per meter squared?

also what does that include e.g. founds/shell/windows/roof or is it to complete the build

also is it charged at per floor level also? e.g. is the foot print is 80meters squared

would that be costing for 160 meters squared if it is 2 story house?

Cheers

I know someone that would be able to handle that and they're excellent as well.

Where abouts are you based?

I have built 5 times and each time I have hired the trades and saved loads, I have had to order all materials too and found playing the builders merchants off against each other some days my husband would come home and I would say I earned over £100 today just by rin ging around for different quotes and in this climate you will get excellent deals, it is very much a 'full time' job but really satisfying.
the last house I built was a four bed 4 bath house and total cost for that was £70 (doing it myself) and then built a bungalow in the garden 6 rooms of 10 X 12 and that cost just under £20,000

Thanks for all the replies

which builders merchants do you buy from, are they local to you are are they nation wide ones?

so you got people in to do the build and still came to £70k?

did you have aself build mortage or did you have the cash to do it straight off?

sorry for all the questions

I used different builders merchants - sometimes local builders merchants - sometimes people like Hancock and Brown, Selco, Jewsons - got a price from one then would ring maybe another 1 or 2 and sometimes even went back to the first one and said - so and so gave me this price, it is a lot of work and when we built the big house I also had two children one was only 4 then.
the last build we did was a recording studio (our third) and that cost approx £1,000
I am fortunate my husband is an electrician and gets to know different trades and how good they are.

We did not have a build mortgage, we were fortunate the very first time we built we built a studio, then an extension the same size as the original house then the 4 bed house (in the grounds of our own houe) which we sold to build - then a bungalow, then another bungalow that we have just practically demolished and made a chalet bungalow, only four original walls remain and it is three times the size it was, then another studio, so all in all we have been busy but I have honetly had enough now, and yes I do feel that I have achieved something, it has been very hard work but worth you have built somthing that will probably last a lot longer than me - at the time I loved every minute of it. But it was a 'job' and I treated it like one.

Good luck with your build, the one thing I will say is you have to be very organised, have lots of files and keep prices of everything to be able to refer to them, I still have all my books. I made a note of everything.

Out of all the times we have built - this is my favourite one so I will not be building again.:thumbsup:

It's very rare that I read a post as useful as your two have been in this thread. With my old man being retired, I'm giving thought to running this all past him tomorrow and trying to get him in on helping me with the same sort of project. I know that finding land is going to be a pain, but this could be proper life-changing material here. Rep's on its way, and if things actually work out, I'll have to remember to come back here and ask you your address so I can follow it up with a giant bouqet of flowers.
