A barn conversion can be an incredible project, transforming something that is unused or unloved into a dream home. Whether you’re eyeing up an old barn to convert into your forever home, or you have a barn on your property with a lot of potentials, it’s important to know what you’re letting yourself in for.
Barn conversions involve careful planning and a lot of work, beginning with some initial research. In this article, we’ll tell you what you need to know about the cost of a barn conversion to help you get started on this exciting project.
What is a barn conversion?
A barn conversion usually involves the conversion of old barns and farm buildings into a habitable structure. Barn conversions can lead to an incredible new home, an additional building for your property, or even a building for commercial use. Barn conversions have a lot of potential, with a strong and sturdy structure to begin with that can become something incredible.
How much does it cost to do a barn conversion?
As with any construction project, the cost of a barn conversion can vary. It will depend on the existing state of the structure and how much work needs to be done to get it to become a liveable shell, before work even begins on the interior.
Barn conversions are typically more expensive than building a brand-new property from scratch. You could pay anywhere between £1,500 per sqm to £2,500. However, there are factors that can make the job cheaper or more expensive, and you’ll need to consider the cost carefully before you decide to take the plunge.
