I think you need to rethink this project. take masking tape and lay out the floor plan in your den or other open space.
5 foot double sink unit=10 sq ft.
2 1/2 x 5 tub = 12 1/2 sq ft
toilet with elbow room 3 x 4= 12 sq ft
That totals 34 1/2 sq ft leaving just 11 1/2 sq ft standing room. out of that 11 1/2 sq ft deduct any section of wall or partition that intrudes into this space and maybe space for a cupboard for towels, etc.
It is possible to make a nice bath in this space but it's going to be a little tight. you should consider anything that will save some space. like a shorter single sink counter because it's unlikely two people could use this room at the same time. A moderately large shower stall would still be a little smaller than a tub.
Whatever you decide, lay it all out on the floor with masking tape so there won't be any surprises.
: 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?
