POINTS TO REMEMBER
• Are you ready to commit time, money and emotional energy?
• Is the building the right ‘shape’?
• Are there dips in the roof or bulging walls?
• If in doubt, seek professional advice
• Habitable does not necessarily mean a house you would want to live in
• Be realistic about costs – €1,000 to €1,500 per square metre for a full renovation is a good rule of thumb
• Be wary of previous renovation work
• Stand back, think carefully and don’t be afraid to ask questions
