    How would I start and how much would it cost to relocate a washer dryer hookup. This is a single level ranch style home. No basement, and the wall that the hookup is currently on we want to tear down to extend the kitchen.

    Big question, but would offer: at the end, where the faucet come into view-- make sure these are above waist high, so you can EASILY reach over and TURN OFF THE wall knobs post every use. Do not hide them, have them in full view.
    This will prevent your faucets from becoming frozen by water and unable to turn off for appliance changes or emergencies. Like a regular use faucet.
    #2, is always use teflon tape at both ends of the hoses. Installers will not do this, so you will have to go back and do it yourself. Just an inch of tape at each end will save you a lot of trouble.
    They say it creates leaks, not teue. To sell more stuff.
    #3, always replace your hoses. Gunked hoses ruin a wash. No savings.
