Question DetailsAsked on 2/25/2015

how much to cut a window into a wall to connect the living room and kitchen? Also add a countertop in the window?

A pass-thru window in the wall that separates the kitchen and living room. I also would like a countertop installed along the bottom of the window to add bar stools in the kitchen for a small eating area.

Below are some prior similar questions (some also address load-bearing walls) which might help - if I had to throw out a ballpark guesstimate off the cuff, it would probably be about $500-1000 by a Handyman (who could do carpentry, drywall repairs, painting, etc himself - to more around $1000-2000 by a Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath contractor.

One difficulty you will have, if you mean a person passage rather than a hand-through pass through (the normal meaning of that term) - will be what you do at the floor, because you will have a gap in the flooring where the wall was. If you can accept a wide transition strip, great. If not, might have trouble matching the flooring.
