You're definitely going to need to get professionals to come out and quote the work for you. It's going to be impossible to know how much this will cost without all of the details of what you want. The work will cost more if you need to add plumbing for instance. Getting those professional opinions will let you determine exactly what you need and make things a little bit easier to figure out.
