Moving furnace & Hot Water heater in basement, possible & approx. cost?

    Just purchased a home built in 1997 with a nice 30x30 unfinished
    basement. I am lookin to finish it, but the HWH & Furnace are right it
    the center of the basement. I could box around it with access doors,
    but that would really break up the room. What I'm thinking about is
    moving the furnace & HWH to the side. The duct work runs along the
    ceiling, wall to wall with the furnace in the center. What I would like
    to do is move the Furnace from the center, to the wall. Is this
    possible & more importantly, how costly? I live in Monmouth County NJ,
    any recommendations would be helpful.

    Thanks
    Drew

    Yes you can move furnace
    BUT! you gone have to build another chimney
    otherwise how you planning to exhaust furnace
    and you hot water heater unless is electric
    will it town that you living in allow you to do that
    you better do some research before you
    go any farther with you idea it could become costly
    Good luck from Dido
