DIY Inspiration Article - [Help] Building a garden office/shed, material cost £1300, request sanity check (UK) - I'm after a quick sanity check on my material costs for building my garden office/shed in the UK.Some quick specs:3.6m long, 2.4m wide2.4m high at the front, 2.0m high at the rear, giving a single pitch roof with a 40cm drop2x2 timber frame construction18mm OSB3 sheeting for floor9mm OSB3 sheeting for exterior walls & roof, cheap 4mm ply sheeting for interior walls & ceilingInsulation in floor, walls, roofExcluding the door, window and cladding, I've priced above materials at about £1000 inc VAT. Cladding with cheap shiplap adds about £300. I hope to source window and door secondhand from somewhere.This seems expensive. I've checked local timber and building merchants, plus a few big name stores.Breakdown of the major items is roughly (all inc. VAT):Timber frame £150Insulation £300Sheets/boards £450Roofing felt £50And then of course +£300 for cladding.Comparing to the famous Colin Furze shed, he was on target to build something bigger with a better roof for only £200 more! ("On target" because, of course, he decided to blow the budget on a slate roof, but that was by choice)Am I missing something here? This seems pricey...Thanks!
