Schedule of materials with full costing.

Summary
#

The final construction cost was around AUD$35,000. The main reason for overshooting the original budget was that I had no idea electrical work was so extraordinarily expensive. I paid over $7000 just for labour / wiring, not including actual electrical devices.

This figure does not include:

  • about $3500 for furnishings (mostly sofa and blinds)
  • about $1000 for tools
  • arguably, over $2000 in mistakes (surveyor and development application).

Note that windows are, and should be, a major expense, given how critical they are to thermal integrity.
