    Whole house refurb


    I am looking at buying a property that would need to be taken back to the shell and made good. Hasn't been touched in thirty years. Rewiring the whole place, possible plumbing updates, does have central heating, knocking one wall down between kitchen and dining room. It is a two storey three bedroom semi detached house. Size is approx one hundred and twelve square metres. If I am looking for a medium finish how much would it cost? And how long would it take?

    "That's a good question with a number of answers dependant on the following.
    1. How much work are you undertaking personally.?
    2. Do you have any particular skills?
    3. Exactly what works?
    4. Will every wall need replastering from bare brick or stone to finish?
    5. Budget for new kitchen, bathroom, floors, combi boiler?
    6. Windows and doors.
    7. Is the roof sound?
    8. Exterior of the house. Does it need any work?
    9. Central heating, new radiators and pipes?

    The cost would be dependant on the above.
    Full rewiring. £2,500-£3000.
    New combi , radiators and new pipework £2,500 approximately."

    "Regarding the cost it’s obviously difficult to gauge accurately as difficulty level, size etc varies from house to house.
    However, roughly speaking you’re looking at ball park 13k give or take."
