I've heard it does cost more to extend or renovate proportionate to a new build because of demolition and refitting work. Still a lot of money.

Thanks for your comments, everyone, we love hearing your thoughts. @blabs, every build, site and brief is so different and can result in hugely different price tags. It's true that building from scratch is generally cheaper than renovating, which @olldroo says. For more information on the subject of how much it really costs to build, stay tuned in 2018 as Houzz has some great information and stories coming out on the topic.
