My girlfriend and I have been actively tyring to locate a suitable self build plot in the Wiltshire area and have viewed several. We have also spoken to several estate agents / builders etc and have always based our budgeting costs on a build cost of Â£850 per square metre.
Yesterday, we spoke with an architect who had designed a property we were very very keen on. When we broached the subject of costs he informed us we were way out and should be basing our build costs on Â£1500 per square meter and that this figure is regardless of the build finish / materials used etc etc.
Can someone confirm if I have been way off the mark at Â£850 or advise me of a more accurate price to use for budgeting purposes.
