If you’re planning to self-build a new timber frame house, it’s important to have a good understanding of the likely costs involved. Fortunately, Vision’s cost calculator can help. By inputting the total square meterage of your proposed new home, the cost calculator can provide you with an estimate of the likely costs involved if you were to self-manage the build of your new timber frame home.

Vision has taken three of the main build routes self-builders are likely to take and provided below (in the black box) the estimated costs for each option. Each figure is calculated based on the inputted square meterage of your proposed new build timber frame home.

Option 1 The cost to supply and install the timber frame kit for your new home. Vision manufactures and installs the new timber frame structure for your new home which allows you to take full control of the rest of the build from preparation groundworks to the internal and external fixtures and finishes.

Option 2 Total cost to self-build your timber frame home. Our self-build cost estimator considers the major expenses that you are likely to incur when building your new timber frame home (see below for the separate items) however, it doesn’t include the cost of land, surveying fees, or landscaping requirements.

Option 3 Full turnkey timber frame house build is where you instruct a main contractor who will manage your build from start to finish, under your instruction. Self-builders often choose this route if they prefer one point of contact and cost certainty with an experienced contractor.

We have also included the savings that are possible if you choose to self-manage your new build timber frame home.

Vision’s self-build cost calculator can be an invaluable tool in helping you to plan and budget for your self-build project, but with many variables when building your own home, for fixed price quotations, please contact us to discuss your project specifics.

Our estimates have been produced based on a two-storey new build of mid-range specification that is in line with a typical self-build specification.
