I am thinking about extending the house by 3m and moving some internal walls. Our rooms are small and I need to push walls out. I am scared at how much this may cost since my income is not much. Can anyone share their experiences on costs involved in moving external brick walls and how much it cost them?

biggest savings will be found in the best design to suit your house and it might be cheaper to rearrange walls or add an extension or do both but you won't know prices until you test a few different floorplans and are ready to get quotes but many designers will start from your budget ...for one reno we moved an internal wall 15cm and an external wall 75cm for an overall extension of just over 5 sqm at a cost of about $100,000 plus new kitchen etc and very happy with overall results but would have been much cheaper without the extension...post a plan of your existing house and a wish list to invite suggestions for your renovation

Moving external walls will be very expensive. Better to add a whole extension or try removing internal walls. Either way you are looking at serious coin to do something decent
