Since I don't know the layout, the existing wiring, the structure, the existing panel, or the total distance, I'm going to say somewhere between $0 and $20,000.01.

There is too many variations to determed what the cost to do it.

If you going to do it yourself it may cost just under couple hundreds Euros.

But to hire a electrician to come out and deal with it the best answer is have 3 diffrent bids to see what the cost plus with enclosed porch you will denfiely need a GFCI receptale anyway.

Merci.

get an estimate from another company and compare. Depending on the amount of work involved, that could be way over priced or under priced. It just isn't possible to give you any sort of accurate price over the internet.

Does the quote you got include the fans and light fixtures? If not, it seems high to me. I got the entire 1600 square foot house I'm building wired (roughed in) for barely twice that much.
