Because costs vary so much from one place to another---no one here will be able to offer any real help.

Start looking for a few local electricians and get some prices from someone that has seen the house.

Good luck----Mike----

Additional information; main partof the house is on the first floor, there is a 2nd bedroom in the attic that is not in use, there is no basement or crawl space outside. Any advice would be helpful
