Hi people,
We moved into a 3 bed 1950's terraced house (4 in the row) 2 years ago. The home report had electrics highlighted as a to do and we now really want to get the house rewired. We also need to semi do the bathroom, new tiles and flooring, maybe a new toilet (Bath and shower are fine although pipes are exposed) and we want to build a single storey extension to the back to create a bigger kitchen with diner, utility and WC. The question is do we try and do this all at the same time (we have two young kids and depending on cost might struggle to fund it all in one go!) or is there a logical order we should/could be doing it all in? We have had a few quotes from architects and the cost of drawings seems to be on avg about £950 but we haven't instructed one yet as unsure of the best approach. Keen to start getting things moving if possible this spring so any advice would be most welcome! Thanks

Extension and rewire at the same time... or rewire first but let the sparks know about the extension (how many sockets/lights etc)

Bathroom can be updated then at leisure.
