We purchased a home in another state and want to install a full master bath in a space that is currently a powder room and an adjoining walk-in closet. We want a 32x60 whirlpool tub/shower combo (ceramic tiled shower), new toilet, new 5' double sink vanity with corian counter, and ceramic floors. There needs to be some drywall work, but the entire space is only 46 sq. ft. My questions are:
1. Is it likely that we could get this done for $15,000 or less, using a General Contractor?
2. What are some of the pitfalls that we can avoid when negotiating with a contractor that would increase the price?
3. Using a General Contrator, how much should we expect to pay per square foot for a new, not over the top, but nice bathroom?
4. Any other advice you could think of for people who have never done this before and do not want to get burned?
