    Timber frame is quicker and cheaper in my opinion. When we did ours it costs around 20% of the average market price for a similar dwelling. With house prices relatively low I'd average at 35% of a similar property that you're looking to build.

    Good luck. It;s a hard slog but well worth it

    The fact your asking such a question on a shopping forum,when there are so many more specific resources available, would suggest your not resourceful enough to even contemplate such an undertaking.

    get an architect to draw plans then a quantity surveyor can give you the best idea on materials for pricing, then get a builder to look at the plans to price how much to build it. thats the best way mate.
    you can send them to me if you like

    Between this and your comments in the "Anyone here in the forces?" thread, you really are a ray of sunshine aren't you?

    If you had plans drawn up you could get a more realistic cost association. Suggest you get a decent builder who is reputable and H&S aware. Your architect should help you with this!
