  1. 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

  3. 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
  4. I've noticed the sad news of the impending closure of well established Uk self build forum. I suggest Fubra offer to take it over & add to Hpc's own Self build forum as it needs a boost . Ebuild forum has a ready made community in this growing sector. It compliments the aims of hpc'ers & forum uses similar software to ease the transition. Edit I noticed this,, so my suggestion may be a bit premature http://BuildHub.org.uk
