    Attached garage in Bolton. The intention is to use this for storage rather than an actual car.

    • Hip Roof (insulated)
    • Cavity insulated walls
    • Roller door to front
    • Flag frame uPVC door to rear
    • Fire door from kitchen
    • Electrical provision (power/lighting)

    "To dig out footings concrete and build up to damp level

    Build brickwork up to wall plate height creating a cavity between existing house and extension to form timber frame hipped roof with slate/tile roof with lead soakers, flashings and upvc rainwater goods, roller shutter to front flag frame upvc door to rear and fire door from main house into the extension.

    All walls and ceilings to be insulated.
    All debris will be removed and site left clean and tidy. "

    £13000.00 with slate roof

    Building Notice fees would be extra.

    around £2000-£2500 in materials depending on where you souce your stuff not hard to build it yourself, have built a slightly larger garage in 4weekends with help from a family friend.

    Sounds like total waste of 10k if you ask me...

    depending on the groundwork required your not being fleeced but find a builder that knows a roofer you can do better .

    This actually is the second one. The first came in at £18-20K depending on the plans!

    Ironically this is actually from a roofer (who did a minor repair for me). When I asked him if he collaborated with any builders for such a project he told me he could do all this for me (including the electrics). I guess he's had a history of working in the building trade before specializing.

    Recently built an 8mx4m detatched garage, base was already there.
    Had a brickie, joiner and roofer, laboured to the brickie (100mm block was used) and helped the joiner and roofer when needed.
    Got a local roughcaster for the roughcasting and another local firm for the doors (up and over front, side UPVC).
    Box gable tiled roof, I done the electrics myself.
    Paid approximately £6500.

    Sectional garages with a new base to ensure it was perfectly flat were coming in at around £1000 less than your quotes.

    Personally, I don't think your quote is too bad.
