It'll cost the same as a "brand new car".

There are several ways to figure out the cost, but it depends if you will DIY, do some of the work yourself and hire a plumber, or hire a contractor to do it.

If you are hiring a contractor, ask at least 5 contractors to come and give you a quote. Check their references and find out if they are insured, as it will make a difference on the price they give. You may have to make a decision between the more costly, experienced contractor with a great reputation or the young startup company with little experience.

If you will do some of the work yourself, first hire a plumber to come and have a look at the existing pipework and give an opinion on what needs to be done. You can do the same process - ask 5 plumbers to come to your home to give an estimate, then pick the one that you feel will do quality work and has the best price. Next you need to determine the cost of the rest of the project. The best way to do this is to do a spreadsheet that lists all of the parts you will need (double vanity, towel rack, floor tile, paint, etc.). Then go to a building supply store or look online to get a price for each one and put it into the spreadsheet - and this will give you the price. Don't forget to add on the price for the plumber to give you a total cost for the project.

If you decide to do the whole thing yourself, you will start with the cost spreadsheet as I mentioned above. I have a whole discussion on how to determine the cost of any home construction project on my website.

Hope this helps ...
