Hi
I live in a Victorian terrace house where the stairs are along the side of the hall that is the internal dining room wall rather than the side which is the wall with next door (see photo). As part of other building works we are doing to the kitchen it would be beneficial if we could move the stairs to where the hall walkway is at the moment, alongside the external wall - literally just swapping the location of the stairs and hall. Can anyone give me a rough idea of cost? Happy to use same staircase etc.
Thanks

Ah yes just swapping the stairs and hall.
It's a bigger job than first appears, it's probably not worth the expense of converting the staircase to go on the other side,
You have a curtail on the bottom step which is cut into the newel base, whilst it's possible to create a curtail right handed you will be left with a piece of missing string on the left side, also does the right hand string have a bevelled edge, which is common on Victorian terraces(stairs made with an open side and a wall side) the capping piece that the spindles sit on won't sit quite right on the other string if it has.
Nothing impossible there but time consuming and you know what that means.
You then need to rip out the ceiling re trim the landing out re-fit the stairs, moving your plumbing (radiator etc) then all the making good.
I would roughly gestimate around £3k plus
