moving the kitchen - connecting plumbing

We want to move the kitchen in our home from its existing location over to the family room. The reason I think I can manage this without a great deal of angst over the plumbing is that there's a bathroom directly behind where the sink will go - in fact the bathtub is directly behind the wall, so the drainage is close at hand to connect to.

Question is, can I tap into the bathtub's water supply and drainage without a problem, or does a kitchen need its own dedicated water supply? I mean, I can see the odd occasion when someone might be having a shower and be left momentarily freezing when the hot water tap gets turned on in the kitchen, but then I don't know many houses that don't suffer from that to some extent regardless of where the tap gets turned on.

So can it be done? The whole idea of making this conversion rests upon the plumbing issues being easy to overcome.

Lastly, are there any permitting issues with making such a conversion (I'm in Florida)? All I can think of is the fact that I'll have to shift the 240 volt power source over to the new area, but other than that I don't see what the problem might be.
