Our First Self Build Costing Meeting with Tom and Mike

Now that we’ve agreed a design in principle with Tom Gresford, we’ve been able to get some draft costings formulated to see where we stand relative to our budget. So today we spoke with Tom and Mike at The Old Water Tower in Chievely.

It went pretty much as expected – a ‘normal’ costing approach would see us go over our budget. However, all is not lost – there may still be ways to try and simplify the design. We’ve always been clear that this can be a work in progress – we’d rather put the money into the structure and fabric of the house, and then leave the fancy stuff until we can afford it, and that’s most likely the approach we’ll have to take…
