We’re looking to add a new utility room to replace our tiny current one. The potential problem is that the only real place for it is on the opposite side of the house to all the rest of the plumbing. Does anyone know how much (ball-park) it would cost, and how much hassle it generally is, to put something like a utility or bathroom away from the main plumbing routes?
I’ve read that a potential solution is to have a laundry room (i.e. dryer and space for drying/laundry management only) instead and keep the washing machine where it currently is.
We had a quote for something similar – to move our downstairs toilet across into our garage. Our builder said it would be the best part of £10k plus all of the disruption. We decided it wasn’t worth it. This did seem really expensive and not worth the hassle.
Might be worth getting a local builder round to give you a feel for the cost but I imagine it will be expensive.
