Renovation project - need advice

I am just in the process of buying a house sign for it in August, but I am currently gathering quotes for work. French side of the border near Basel

Before winter I need heating and electrics installed into the house. The old ones are a hazard. Just got a quote for 18000 euros

Seems far too expensive for a standard 3 bed house 100 square metres. Heating will be electric also.

Is it cheaper to get someone from Germany? Would the French allow it? Could a German install the cabling etc and a French inspector sign it off?

Does anyone know any good reasonably priced French contractors?

Getting desperate now, as I need to book someone and make sure I have heating for winter other wise will be camping in the front room.

Also I need a kitchen, anyone know of good mid range kitchen companies in the area?
