The average new build home costs £225,940 compared to a self-build cost of £144,000 if you do the work yourself or £166,000 if you employ tradesmen to do it for you
these building costs exclude:
The cost of buying a building plot
Professional fees and legal charges
Insurances and the cost of borrowing.
You build most of your new home yourself. This can save you around 30-40% on the total price, employing help as and when you need it. You buy all materials yourself, directly from the merchant.
Quality of materials is an important thing to think about when it comes to house building costs. The more luxurious, the more it’s going to cost.
