How much does it cost to knock down a coat closet that has a light switch on the outer wall to expand the size of a kitchen?

I have a single family house. It has 3 bedrooms and one full bath. I would like to add a detached bathroom and need an estimate how much will it cost?
Just a suggestion Kristine...I would call some general contractors in your community to come to the house and give you bids...that will probably offer the best information.
