The cost of aLondon Home Extensionwill vary greatly depending on the type of property you own and your requirements. While there is no precise formula for obtaining an accurate cost for your extension, builders have worked out an indicative price guide for building extensions in London.
A typical ground floor extension may cost around £30,000£50,000.The price will vary depending on several factors such as location of the house; ground conditions; quality of finishing; electrical and plumbing work; kitchen and bathroom fittings, and the type of extension required.Onestorey extensions are more common, however twostorey extensions can create additional
space without going into the loft. Adding a twostorey extension doesn’t mean that it will cost you twice as much. Just multiply the figure for a single storey by two, and deduct 20% to get a rough idea of the cost.
The most common size of extension is 15 to 25 square meters, which can have construction costs between £20,000 and £35,000 (excluding the interior fitting). The cost for interior fitting can range from £10,000 to £20,000 for a small singlestorey extension.
