Moving a kitchen into box room

Hello - I am looking to purchase a property that is currently a 1 bed tenement flat. We are looking to convert it into a 2 bed (a lot of the other flats in the building have done the same). This would involve shifting kitchen into box room and making previous room the second bedroom. Has anyone ever done something similar / have a rough idea of how much this would cost? Obviously it will vary location to location (we are based in Edinburgh) but any information would be much appreciated!

    Why dont you ask the others that have done it, I'm sure they will tell you and may even recommend the builder or not?

    Here in London, the quotes if you can get one are massive as most builders inc poor ones have a mass of owrk on their books and I'm guessing the spend half a day a week giving sky high quotes and will go for the highest offer and drop other jobs.

    It also depends on the material ie high end etc.

    I'm assuming it must be a relatively straightforward swap as so many have done that

    Good luck :):)
