Your question and it's answer are not so simple.

1) what is the load? above it in particular.

2) what are each of the walls made of?

3) what is the foundation and earth works like underneath both where the wall is now and where you wish to move it to.

4) when you go to get your building permit you will be required to have a Licensed Engineer approve the plan for weight stabilization and wall placement. Only then will you be able to figure details and cost, the engineer is the best money you can spend now, make sure he or she has a history of doing this.

Good luck!

It is impossible to blind quote on somethin like that but I know for a fact with materials I would be charging at least min. well over 20 grand, can't see anyone doing that amount of work legally and too code for less. If exterior wall being done expect double. You also need to have it all engineered and approved 1st and that is extra & depending on who you use could cost $800 or $2,000 fee
