Seems like good value to me.

Ours is approx. 1000sq ft (1 bathroom, kitchen, 2 bed, 2 reception rooms), and cost £20k which included high specification finishes throughout (Burlington bathroom, fired earth tiles, wool berber carpets, engineered oak flooring, german kitchen, bosch appliances, farrow and ball decorating).

We also had about 50% plastered, replaced electrics and updated lights to LED spotlights, had new plumbing (not new rads though) and fixed the existing boiler.

We replaced the front door, but didnt replace any internal doors. Windows were refurbished, not new.

£120 day rate seems very good value for money to me. The only trade we had that was that cheap was the decorator.
