3 bedroom house cost to build
The cost of building a 3-bedroom house varies greatly, depending on the local labor costs, availability of materials and your personal preferences. A basic 2,000 square foot home can cost $100 per square foot to build. This includes the cost of labor, materials and taxes.
The size and design of your home will affect the cost to build. For example, does it have an open floor plan or several rooms? Do you want an attached garage or will you park in the driveway? Is there an expansive deck or patio area?
The type of home you want to build also affects its cost. Some homes are built with concrete slabs while others use wood framing.
New homes can be built with pre-fabricated kits that include everything from electrical wiring to plumbing fixtures and flooring — saving time and money on construction costs, but not necessarily quality.
The cost of building a 3 bedroom house will vary considerably depending on the size and location of the property. However, on average, the cost would be between £120,000 and £150,000 for a semi-detached home in England and Wales. This is based on an average build cost per square metre of £1,250.
This will include the cost of:
Foundation: The foundation can make up to 50% of your total build costs as it is the most expensive part of any project. This will depend on whether you are building on an existing site or starting from scratch. In either case, you should budget at least £10,000 for foundations alone.
Building shell: The exterior walls and roofing are the next most expensive part of any project and depending on how much work you want doing here can take up 50%+ of your budget. You should budget at least £12,500 for this element alone.
Internal finishes: Once internal walls have been built and plastered it is time to think about painting them or fitting floor coverings etc… This will vary depending on how much work is done but expect to spend around £5,000 in total if everything goes smoothly!
