Moving A Sink

About to remodel my kitchen and would like to move the sink about five feet to the left of where it currently sits. The current sink setup has the drain right under the cabinet so I would need to add some plumbing for the new sink location so it can drain. The sink will become a corner sink by the way.

I'd also like to move the dishwasher to the space occupied currently by the sink and tie that in to that drain line.

For the sink, how would I plumb that over to the drain, what would the line need to look like? I'm guessing I'd need a trap in there somewhere for clogs. I think the drain that is there now has a vent on it. I'm just a little unsure of the setup I'll need and what it should look like in the end. I'll also be going from a double sink to a single bowl.

There is no way to actually move the drain as the basement is all finished and breaking up ceilings and walls is out of the question.

I don't see how you can move the sink 5 feet without touching the pipes below. However, some of the forum members may actually have a miracle, in their bag of tricks.

You could run the drain line in the back of cabinets if no room in wall. Yes you would need a trap under sink. Be sure when you connect dishwasher the drain hose goes up to bottom of counter top before it drops down to connect to drain.
