Restoration & Refurbishment Question
Complete refurb of a 3 bedroom house
We have just viewed a 3-bed, 3-reception house which needs a complete refurb and are wondering if it's reasonable to ask a builder to come along to a 2nd viewing to give a rough idea of the cost of the works before we put in an offer. If our offer is accepted we would of course ask for a detailed quote at that point, but we want to have a better idea of the likely cost of the work required before making an offer.
House is in greater London and requires rewiring and replastering throughout, refitting 2 bathrooms, new central heating system and double glazing. We also want to move the kitchen (currently narrow galley kitchen) to one of the reception rooms, knock down a conservatory and replace roof of a brick-built outbuilding.
heating system 4/5000
glazing 8/ 10,000.00
single extension with knock through and new kitchen roughly 25/35,000
hope this helps.(final spec is only on a budget range throughout,higher the spec higher the cost)
