Some free advice (that I should have followed 40 years ago when I started doing DIY plumbing): wherever you get them, find a book or two and read up on how to do the job correctly. And learn what the various plumbing parts are called (sanitary tees, trap adapters, 1/4 bends, nipples, wyes, etc. etc. and what the are used for). Believe me, when you go to purchase the supplies, you will surely be confused by the huge variety of fittings that are available. As a result, you will more than likely be returning many of them.

wow thanks for the vote of confidence there. Yeah im sure the plumbing wont go as smoothly as windows or floors, but Ive got no choice. Either i do it, or i live on the street. And your advice to "find another plumber" really wont help at all becuase most plumbers charge the same amounts. if it costs $1500 just to have a drain moved, i can imagine what he would charge to completely replumb the whole house

Not really generalization, just facts. My dad had to have this done in one of his rentals, and didnt want to do it himself so he got four quotes on it, and not a single one of them quoted him under $1500. And that was about ten years ago, i imagine its quite a bit higher now
