estimate of building work


Hey people this is my first post and would really appreciate your expert help, here goes. I've recently purchased a property and need help on the price of building work to be carried out. Back door approx 2mx800mm to be taken out and bricked up, window approx 500mmx400mm to be taken out and bricked up. Extend existing window 500mmx400mm to 1000x1200mm. Install french doors in place of an existing window. Demolish chimney breast approx 1400mm width x 2500mm height and make good.

Note; window, french doors and bricks provided.

all replies greatfully accepted.

thanks.

You will need to get local quotes
Prices vary widely by area

Metric? Who does metric?
And what the hell is a chimney breast?
Are you sure you have the right forum?

Last time I checked this forum wasn't restricted to US only
And the US has converted a LOT to metric

Why should the United States convert to the metric system? Since trade and communication with other nations is critical to the health of our economy, adopting the measurement system used by 95 percent of the world's population is not a matter of choice, but a matter of necessity for the United States.

Chimney breast......right forum ??
They could be related to the asian escort post this morning promoting, "adult companionship"
I'm glad I made the appointments before the post was deleted.
Timing, it's all about the timing.
