Kitchen, bathroom, toilet, walls and carpets for 20k... Possible?!

I've found a house I love - a Victorian terraced house with 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, kitchen, bathroom, downstairs loo.

But it's on at the higher end of our budget, and needs loads of work.

Is it possible to put in a new kitchen and bathroom, and sort the walls/carpets for 20k? Or is that mad...?

Thank you, wise MNers!!

What does sorting the walls mean- painting or re plastering?

We just had a new bathroom and cost £6k. I'm guessing £12k for kitchen and so a bit left over for the rest?

Definitely! Plastering was 3k, kitchen & fitting was 4.5k, bathroom & loo was £4k, painting was £1k for whole house and carpets and solid oak flooring was £3k. This was incl. elements of electric & plumbing work needed in the relevant rooms. We're in London but the cost depends on what u go for. We got an ikea kitchen fitted, etc. Go for it!! It's a great opportunity to put ur stamp on a home :-)

Poppet, that sounds much cheaper than other quotes I've had (and we're in London too). We're you happy with the finish? And can you recommend tradesmen??!

Finish was great!! We had tradespeople from outskirts of London rather than central london. Our plastering quotes varied from £2.5k to £7k!! Happy to recommend - I'm based in SE London.

Yes totally doable. We did this for less with cheap Labour. Paying standard Labour prices would make it around £20k or so...Give or take a little bit.
