How much is your contingency budget?

We had 20% but on finding a massive surface water drain when excavating for our foundations it all got spent before we laid any bricks!

Power has already been run, 10mm 3 core SWA clipped along the fence (to be buried later with the posters with the sarcastic comments) ;o))))

Foundations should be fine when the neighbours extended I chipped in to extend that side to my property, the rear extension is the crunch point as it does not add any value to the house the conversion from 3 to 5 bedroom does and I don't think I can afford both, without the rear £150k may cover it.

Good luck with the project. Out of interest how are you going to work it with the builders? Fixed contract, you pay for materials direct and cover wages etc. Always intrigued to see how people manage these things. What ever happens they always go over budget.
