We're just about to completely reno our current bathroom. It will be a complete gut (except for a some of the drywall), with all new fixtures (Tub, toilet, Sink, Cabinet, etc). Attached is my spreadsheet I did up for the estimated costs. I chose average priced components for our relatively small bathroom. The material costs came out to $3835. This will be a DIY project, so no labour costs

If I had all the time and money in the world, I would replace our tub with a tub/shower (which would require removing a large window in front of the tub) and remove the shower stall and replace it with cabinets. For some bizarre reason, our master bath has a separate tub and a shower stall.

On the other hand, some contractors don't want a job to small and they'll purposely give you a high quote to see if you'll bite. If you have some tools and are a little bit handy, do some of it yourself. You might be surprised how good you do, and you don't have to hurry, and you'll learn a ton. Plus, your wife will think you're a stud.

Hire the dudes in Texas hanging outside Home Dopey for that price.They're "hungry" and possibly a little drunk but the price is right.

This is to avoid any funny business with couples sharing the tub or shower together.

That way, after a day of mountain biking, you can take a shower while your bike is drying after washing it in the tub.

Ours includes new custom built tile shower (but small), a fair bit of plumbing (moving some old lines away from an outside wall, tile floor, tile half walls, new window, new exhaust fan (never had one), so basically a new bath from scratch. No tub just shower, sink, toilet. Just curious.
We redid a hall bath this last summer. It's a fairly small room.

Took it down to the studs, replaced wall tile, floor(tile) shower stall with full tub, lighting, heater, sink with cabinet and sink. Replaced a bi-fold door with a pocket door. We did the painting, about $15000.

Quit replying to the OP from 2008. Either be silly or go away.

I thought we weren't supposed to be silly in the bathroom.

Not always true.
In hockey when you're the favorite in a playoff and blow the game it's called "pooping the bed".
