Hi all Appreciate this can be a fairly wide ranging issue but looking for people's views on the current (mid 2015) cost of self builds. A few details to aid discussion: - Site already in possession - Location is Co Armagh - Build would be traditional block 2 storey - c. 2500 - 2800 sq ft with detached garage - Septic tank required Other queries if anyone can help: 1.Has anyone got any good (or bad) experience of particular building contractors around Co Armagh? Would like to keep it local if possible. 2. Any tips for reclaiming the VAT on building materials, given that a new build is zero rated. Many thanks
Hi. Has anyone got any ideas on current self build costs per square foot to builders finish. We have plans for 2600 sq foot 1 1/2 storey in a rural location on family land. Rectangular symmetrical house. Prices seem to vary a lot depending on who we speak to. Architect has advised roughly £65 per sq foot. Also how much is a sceptic tank to install? Any advice appreciated. We are also anticipating all tiling, plumbing and electrics done by other independents
Hi, we have just secured outline planning permission for a home build on family farmland between Armagh and Dungannon. We are hoping to build approx. 2200-2400sq ft - L shaped house, with bedrooms in the roof space and floor to ceiling glass on the west and south facing sides of jut out of part of the 'L' - sliding doors on one side and large windows on the other. We plan for 1 bathroom & 1 en-suite. We hope to be able to build to a very good standard insulation with a heat recovery system in place. We will most likely need someone to project manage the build as we live some distance away. We would be interested to hear recommendations of home builders with provision for project management and what costs that we should expect. We would like to be able to budget for complete finish including windows, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, driveway, painting etc. We also like to hear recommendations for roofers, tilers, kitchens, driveways etc I seen on a previous forum that someone was building a timber frame home. I made initial enquiries about timber frame but have been lead to believe that mortgage are almost impossible to secure for timber frame homes in NI. Does anyone know any better?
