two storey extension

How much does a double storey extension cost? 

As a basic rule of thumb, a two storey extension will cost around 50% more than a single storey extension. Read about extension costs per square metre in our guide here. Based on this guide a (3x6m) two storey extension would be upwards of £60,000 for the basic build cost.*

*Figures have been updated in 2022 following recent price increases in constructions costs of approximately 30%, according to a survey of architects and designers on Design for Me.

  • Add on 10-15% for professional fees (architect, planning application, building regs, structural engineer) (£9000 at 15%)
  • VAT (£12,000)

Double storey house extension cost = upwards of £81,000

Please note this does not include kitchens or bathrooms, and applies to most areas in the UK. Costs in London and SE can be considerably higher.
