Is this a realistic costing?
I understand quite a number of things can go wrong but if that did not happen is this accurate? Am interested in your views.
How long is that piece of string yet again.
I suppose to start with, what is in the extension? How much glass are you including, Are their bi-fold doors, what type of ceiling, what type of rooflights, what wall finish, what level of insulation, what floor finish, what plumbing spec, Is the current boiler capable of heating additional radiators, what type and size kitchen (€5k or €25k?), standard or granite countertop, is there a kitchen at all, downlights or a single light, 4 power sockets or 15?, need I go on............
The specification of the items required, the size and shape of the design, the height and structure of the design, the standard and quality of finish is what dictates the cost of a build. Global rates per m2 are really a very simple type of guide but they can vary wildly depending on the above.
