Hello,  I am new to this site and wondered if anywone could offer advice?

We would like to buy a house in Northern Spain either Galicia or Asturias and have been looking a renovating an older property.

So could anyone advise average cost of installling oil fired central heating in a 150m2 3 bed property?  I know that its a bit of a how long is a piece of string question but having some idea of costings will help before we commit to a renovation project.

The house will require other work of course but I am aware that without heating the winter in Northern Spain would be difficult to say the least.

Many thanks for your advice.

I have done a few newbuilds and renovations in Spain (and UK). Renovations cost far more than newbuilds....and with renovations you always have to make do with the limitations of the building you are renovating....while with newbuilds, once having found your have a blank canvas. eg, we renovated a small 100 sq m agricultural building...just digging out the earthen floor, laying foundation and tiling it cost around €15k ...same story replacing ancient roof, etc, etc...ended up spending €80k on tarting up a small casita....whereas we could have build a far better new one to our own spec for €50k. If you can buy a ruin on a good plot cheaply..close to or in a town...then tear it down and start from scratch.

Thank you for this GuyT.  It is good to get a perspective from someone who has actuallly undertaken a similar task.  It has certainlly made me look at a renovation project in a different light.  I think we willl have a look a t building plots as an alternative.
