Maybe of you do all of the work yourself... Materials will be near to 15k alone

15k will not cover it if you live in the southeast, for something of that size you would be looking around £30k based on an average £1250 per m2 of the extension.
Outside of the southeast it would probably be nearer £800 per m2 so about £19k.

Hope that helps out a bit.

Nowhere near im afraid.The cheapest ive heard of is £1000 per m2 (you are asking for 24m2).You would need around 30k to do this including drawings,building control fees and any unexpected costs (usually foundation depths) to be sure of having enough of a budget.Get a few people local to yourself to price it.You may find im wrong.The replies that you are given in "ask a tradesman" can also be pretty varied!

Hi Darren here from heritage Joinery, most company's will charge around £1000 a sq mtr a that's pretty basic fixtures and fittings in my opinion you will struggle to find a company to do it for £15000 unless you were to do it your self with only the plumbing and spark needed cheers darren
