The difference between these two posts?
One is the sizzle and the other is the steak.

I had a potential customer think I was gouging him on a 1960.s house bath gut--adding all new plumbing and cutting a window into antique siding--

"That's to much! I'm buying all the expensive stuff ! You are just buying some 2x4s and drywall!"

(he also asked if he could use my dumpster to get rid of the demolition debris)

No one here knows what the layout of your house is, size of floor joist, spans, spacing's, location of drains, what the drains and supply's are made of, construction of the home, what type siding you have, what your local zoning codes are.
Adding a bathroom opens up a whole can of worms when it comes to zoning.
Biggest issue will be drainage, supply lines are easy, drains need proper slope, venting, sizing ECT.

Exhaust fan timer switch. Wire for power/neutral and ground. GFI outlet and double if for bedrooms. I also have separate outlet near the toilet for possible heated seat, bidet, blank cover if unused.
Installing screw blocks for towel bars, safety grips, etc.
Solid brass or stainless door hinges.
Medicine cabinet with decent hinges. Even Kohler, check reviews for complaints.
