Hi all.
I have a chalet style home and the upstairs bedrooms have sloped walls either side due to the shape of the house and size of roof. the bathroom currently has a dormer (when i bought it) but i was hoping to get a very rough estimate on how much a dormer on either side of the house about 3m long to square up the wall and add a little more space in the bedrooms
many thanks

Questions of cost are virtually impossible to answer on an Internet forum. There are so many variables that you really need to get a few quotes from local builders and compare them .

It's the old "how long is a piece of string" question.

Get 3 local builders to give you a quote. You’ll not get a pro blind pricing a job on a forum. What if I tell you it’ll cost 8 grand and a local builder says 15?

RRoberts21, After all, would you really want to say, some bloke on a forum, who has never even seen the job, who has no idea where the job is, or what is really involved said it should only be "not alot"

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

I have a similar house and i'm based in Central Scotland. I was given a ballpark / thumb suck estimate of £15k for removing two smaller dormers and replacing with a continuous 7 meter dormer. Obviously you can't just take my quote and half it, things like structural changes will add substantially to the cost.
