ARghh - Angies Lisst computer is removing paragraph breaks again - I have put in ===== as paragraph break markers.



Here are a bunch of previous questions with answers (and many more links in the answers) about washer/dryer relocation and one about water heater FYI - this is a big enough job, and dependent so much on your existing utility line and piping routing in the house that you should get at least 3 responsive bids - because unless access to piping and power and such is very close by and easily accessed, you are talking into the $1000-3000 range probably, especially if a significant amount of drywall has to be repaired and repainted after lines are run.



On garage location issue - pay attention to the response concerning that - ALL the appliances have to be up on platforms (typically 18" high) so the risk of them igniting possible stray fuel fumes from the cars or from any fuel leak. This can actually be a convenience with some front-loaders with front controls, can require a large platform including standing room and steps for top loaders or back-control units. ======== ======== ======== ======== ======== ======== ======== ======== ======== One other consideration - if water heater is older - say approaching its design life, since you will be paying probably $500-1000 for the relocation of it, might be a good time to consider installing a new one instead, which at this time would only add the cost of the heater (probably $500 range for normal one) versus the $1000-1500 commonly to put a new one when it actually fails.
