Between kitchen and dining room, I suspect its supporting.

Just rough idea would be great

Thanks.

We've just done this. Our builder charged £860+vat for labour. We had a structural engineer in to do the plans and that was £450incl. The supporting beam was £220, and building regs were about £350.

About 2k all in, I suppose - the only figure I'm not sure on is the builder's because he actually quoted to do all the work (complete kitchen refit as well), and I had to ask him for a separate quote to do the wall for our building regs application - the cost of the application is on a sliding scale and I wasn't about to pay the fee on all the works we were having carried out!

We got told 3K to take out a supporting wall (in London).

Oh, forgot to add - we're London/Surrey borders.

Thanks - I was guessing it would be around that mark.
