home rehab

Im looking at a house to purchase that needs a little work. It needs a 203k loan so there wont be endless funds. I looked at the house and the downstairs is too small and th ebasement had a little water which made the downstairs smell musty. Now Im hoping the basement was only wet due to power being off, bad gutters, internal leak, or something small as I didnt see any signs of cracks but who knows. So basically I would NEED the bottom bedrooms wall knocked out to make one large room, the kitchen and living room wall knocked out to make a large kitchen, and a living room added to the front of the house. Am I getting too far ahead here? I dont need a huge living room maybe 14' off the front of the house then the width of the house thats maybe 24'. Any tips, help, or off the top of your head estimates would REALLY help me with this decision and would be greatly appreciated. House is in South Jersey 08079 area.

You're making a pretty obscure request. No one can give you an estimate for something like that sight unseen. You will need to get local estimates and permits for that kind of work.
