I am considering the option of buying a village chapel built 1840s. It is about 40sqm and would look to put in a mezzanine floor for half of it.

It will need a new roof, with insulation and rooflights, inside walls stripped back tanked and insulated, underpinning one corner, assume rewiring and currently not on water though available, and the neighbouring properties are not on mains sewage so will need to plan for that.

With all that going for it, and the sleeping tenants out the back, I could get it for a pittance – but am I mad to even consider it?

How much would I have to budget for (I promise to double it for all the things I don’t know yet!)?
