Renovation Costs For A 3 Bed Semi

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask, but can anyone help me with regards to potential costs for a property that is advertised as 'Requiring full modernisation and scope for extending,'. I think the property was built over 60 years ago.

the floor plan is similar to this3brfp.jpg

If the house needs to be extended at the back and the dining room and kitchen knocked into one open plan space with room to put in a small shower / cloakroom as well.

The house might need to be updated with regards to electrics, plumbing, gas heating yada yada...

Im guessing it will need:

New electics
Central heating
Damp Proofing
Redecorating throughout
walls knocked down and rsj put in??
new windows
New bathroom
New Kitchen
Plastering..

Also if there is asbestos or dry rot??

Will 20-25K do this, or am I way off target

thanks in advance

Depends on a number of factors, including location, standard of finish required and quality of fittings, but sounds a bit low. To put into context, currently having bathroom refitted and all in that is costing a little over £10k but that is in London and good but not top end tiles and fittings.

Read through this guide:

Typically you should budget around £1,000 per sq meter plus c. 25% contingency.

However, it's hugely variable depending on what part of the country, whether you're doing second fix, If you're scouring for bargains on ebay / gumtree / preloved / freeads / friday-ads and have the storage when you spot a bargain for later on in the project.

I know of a 110m2 house completely gutted (apart from roof) which was about £60k in south east, but took 2 years to do. No extra extensions in that costing.
