    Hi, we are looking to buy a house and in order to maximize the downstairs space we are thinking of removing the chimney breast and the partition wall between kitchen and dinning room.
    We have no experience in building or building regulations and we would appreciate some advice with regards to this.

    What would be the best solution for this, remove the partition wall and the chimney breast downstairs only or remove the full chimney stack (I've attached photos of the plan and the roof chimney)?
    What would the cost of this work would go to £5k+, £10k+, £20k+, as we have to account for this separately of the purchase price.
    What is the cheapest solution and what is the best solution? We rather pay a little bit more for the best solution than to do it all over again in the future.
    What additional work we have to take into consideration other than wall/chimney removal, roof, ceilings, floors, plastering etc. We expect the job will take some time to finish and there will be a lot and lot and lot of dirt!!

    Thank you and appreciate all answers.
