New kitchen/utility room progress pics

Well we moved into our new house on Monday. And the builders have already started this morning

Current dining room becoming a kitchen diner





Excuse the mess

The kitchen is going to look like this





Collecting these sink and taps tomorrow

Glad your move went well. II have just started a thread today as we are interested in buying a house and doing similar to you. We would want to move the kitchen to the dining room (same colour of kitchen and worktop&#128513 and turn the kitchen into an en-suite (if we can knock through) and office. Can I ask if the kitchen price increased by much as no plumbing would be in place in that room?

This will the second time we have done this, as we did it in our previous house. Itís not really the plumbing, but the wiring. Often the room needs re-wiring, lights moved around, plastering etc, and then we have always have something structural to sort too. Last house chimney breast this one a gas fire and fireplace. I just collected £900 of screwfix wiring stuff yesterdayÖ.

Itís hard as we are on a day rate with our general builder of £120 a day, £100 a day for the plasterer, £80 for the labourer if required (rarely) and our electrician/plumber/joiner of £150. We buy all parts using their discount, the kitchen from b&q etc and they come and do the work.
Our last kitchen cost £2.2k inc appliances, but we had a chimney breast removed, and a new basic bathroom suite inc tiles. 4 rooms plastered. Total cost was £11k
This house the kitchen cost £3.6k with only the oven, hob and extractor as we brought the rest with us.
Bathroom is done, but weíre creating a downstairs toilet, and 6 rooms plus the hall and stairs will need plastering. Total budget is £15k.
We do a lot ourselves and shop around though, and both us and the kitchen fitter are more than happy with the nicer b&q kitchens.

I think itís defo a piece of string scenario; but really stressful so good luck

Thanks so much, thatís really helpful. I am sure itís going to look fab once itís done. We were hoping a top budget of £15000 for the kitchen as with our very rough estimates we reckon about £50000 for everything that needs done. That definitely sounds doable.
