My extension is 7x5, pitched roof and includes utility room.
All for €25k cash.

I supplied the new boiler at cost.

My sister paid something similar in Dundalk.
That includes a fully fitted out bathroom (walk in shower, free standing bath etc) and a separate storage room.

Obviously take away the bathroom and you will pay a lot less.

Getting quotes has been an awful pain. Loads of lads not returning calls or emails, had 3 of them over to the house and walked them through the idea and they still were taking ages for quotes.

Anecdotally I was told to expect to pay €1k=€1.5k per 1sqm, but the quotes we got were above that.

Got quoted in that range ourself, looking to get the attic done later in the year. Was surprised by how much it going to cost.

Also thinking of getting a 'seomra' out the back garden. Does anyone have one of these PODS? Are they worth it?

Stairs up, big bedroom to the front with a new dormer window, ensuite. Then to the rear another room that'll be used as an office/storage. Just velux windows to that. Gains us about 50sqm. I was told one of the trickiest bits is relocating the water tank from the current attic floor (and future bedroom floor) up to a higher level. Our house is currently A2 also, we stipulate that it has to remain A2 so that ruled out some lower builds that were using cheaper materials.

I believe it only costs about 5k if you just want stairs, flooring and electrics put in.

All the extras are number of windows, plumbing, fixture and fittings etc
Depends on what you want to use it for.

Wasn’t that long ago when many people in Ireland were lucky to have a toilet out in the garden. They were the posh ones!

Cheers! We'll be doing a lot less than that, we have A3 though so will want to keep that as well

Reckon the bathroom and kitchen are the two most important rooms in a house to get right. 

Had a walk in shower in the states and it was the business. Hard to come back to a bath doubling as a shower.

I basically just have to do the attic, small upgrade of living room to add my mini bar and new fireplace and storage and upgrade the bathroom and then I'm done. So probably 50k all in. Will take a good few years to get it all finished off. Probably another 5 or 6. 

There is a house for sale nearby with everything done to high spec, bigger house and garden (room to build a home bar/home office). Not as good road though, undesirables hanging around and back garden wall exposed to a big field beside a walkway. 
Its probably going to sell for 50k more than I would get for mine house if I were to sell. My house is worth about 130k more than my mortgage amount. 

Would be nearly tempted to try and trade up but the hassle of trying to sell your own before buying the other would put me off.

Suppose it’s the curse of the do’er upper....you never have the money at the right time when you should be doing it up.

I would of thought a basics attic conversion would be between 10/12 grand?
