    Hi all,

    I'm moving house to a 1930's terrace which has a very small kitchen next to a fair sized dining room (both on back of house). I'd like to have the two rooms knocked into one and then preferably swap over the kitchen and dining areas (just cos the layout would work better with the rest of the house and garden). But I realise that this could be expensive as the drains and main house water stop cock are currently on the outside kitchen wall. Is it even possible to move the main stop cock? How much work is likely to be to involved in moving drains etc - is it even possible to do this?

    Any general advice appreciated.

  3. It is possible to move both the drains and the incoming water main.

    Your best bet is to get three estimates (or better still quotes) - if you know friends who have used the trades before then even better.

    The cost will depend on the floor structure, the changes required and the accesibility of the existing services.
