Estimating the Cost of Your Dream Home Build.

Are you considering a home renovation, extension, or even an entirely new build? One of the most crucial aspects of your project is estimating the cost. Understanding the potential costs involved is essential for planning and budgeting effectively.

At Sheldon Peever Studio, we understand that every project is unique, and accurately estimating costs can be a complex task. However, we’re here to provide you with an overview of the typical expenses associated with different parts of the construction process. By breaking down the costs into various components, you’ll gain a clearer picture of what to expect and how to plan your dream project.

Design and Architectural Fees

(£5,000 – £20,000+)

Before construction begins, you’ll need architectural drawings. These are essential for obtaining planning permissions and ensuring your project aligns with building regulations. Architectural fees can vary based on the complexity of the project and the level of detail required.

Planning and Building Regulation Fees

(£1,000 – £3,000+)

Obtaining planning permission and complying with building regulations is a necessary step. These fees cover the cost of submitting applications, surveys, and inspections to ensure your project meets all legal requirements.

Contingency Fund

(10% – 20% of Total Costs)

It’s crucial to set aside a contingency fund to cover unforeseen expenses or changes during the project. Typically, this fund ranges from 10% to 20% of your total estimated costs.
