How long will my build project take?

Considering a build project?

Ok. So now you have your planning permission for your build project, you have your building regulations and you have your tender pack sent out to one-too-many builders.

I advise in my “planning timeline” infogram that you chose your start time of project carefully, but how do you know how long a build project will take?

Before any reputable builder begins they should provide you with a timeline specific to your job, and specific to their workforce, but if you haven’t got to this yet:

Please take a look at my infogram below which details a guide timeline for building a mid-sized extension. Scale up or down as your project requires but you will have an idea of the running of the project to see when it would be good to go on holiday… and when not!

If you are at the point that you need planning permission and want some information on the steps and how long it will take, see my article on that subject here.
