Can anyone tell me if the general cost of building materials has risen considerably since February?

I suspect my potential garage builder is spinning me a yarn as he says he now can't do the project for the price agreed in May as he would be "paying me". Blames it on the huge rise in material costs since february.

Personally i think he underquoted me at the outset.

Anyone any idea the general cost to build a single block, rendered double garage with double 'leccy doors?

Advice or info much appreciated....

low pitched roof, pitched on 4 sides with felt type "tiles" if that makes sense!

Dimensions are approx 5.5m x 6.5m

Fifteen grand(ish).

And materials prices certainly have been rising at an untenable rate. We're currently factoring in 11% materials inflation for projects going on site early next summer.

All materials, excluding the block paving around it, but INCLUDING the 6" thick concrete base, the real roof tiles, the doors, concrete block walls, some of the tools I bought too, wiring, sockets etc: £6000

I tried to add the breakdown of prices, but it is in some Word format and looks shyte when pasted here.

No labour charges in there, as the guy on the roof did it all for free. It was 'finished' a year ago, but still needs some PVC in the gable ends and a few last touches.

Nice one. Add in electric doors, labour and materials inflation and it's £15k. thumbup

I had quotes for £20k ish to build it, by real builders, out of brick, but I don't have that sort of cabbage laying about, so muggins here did it all. Good fun, but I'd never do it again.

Electric roller door is a maybe, in the future, about £1200 I think I was quoted.

It is basically a kit car hot rod, '32 Ford, undergoing a major overhaul/rebuild.
