We are looking at a possible extension , to keep costs down one plan is to get a builder to build till watertight then manage the individual trades separately. The extension would be fairly small 6/7m2 for a utility room. I'm trying to get an idea of cost for the shell , I'm thinking £700m2?. We are in the north. Anyone else gone down this route ?
The question is, is it worth doing yourself? How much did the builder quote you for him doing it all. Compared to you arranging individual trades.

The slopping roof of our new kitchen extension wasn't ordered despite them saying that they had ...and the guy was now on holiday.
