Barn Conversion Dooerupper

Recommended Posts

=1&category[]=2&&type=sales&id=2968153&id=2629507"]barn conversion

just seen this.

I have heard these things can be a moneypit to convert. which parts/problems tend to cost the most?

How much would it cost to do it the lazy way and get tradesmen in?

How much would it cost if you did it on the cheap and did as much as possible by yourself?

thanks

It`s a bit of a, how long is a piece of rope question but the first big bill would be for the removal/disposal of the asbestos roof on that particular one

For that particular property, access might be an issue. I noticed that the gas and leccy services will need to be put in by the vendor, by negotiation. They seem to be flogging off the entire set of buildings but I'd be wondering who gets the access road? Will they keep that as a ransom strip or will it be shared among the three buildings there?

Rule of thumb for barns is that they cost more per sq ft than a new build – because of the problems you might turn up. I've seen estimates of £200/sq ft.
