Rough est. of project cost?


Hi! I would like to remove the current door to my small bathroom and make it into a wall, then create a new opening and move the door to the opposite wall. I'd also like to move the vanity/sink and commode to the opposite wall (about 4 or 5 feet away), and move the hot water radiator pipes down from its current location about a foot—it'd be on the same wall still. Can anyone provide a rough estimate of the cost of that project? Thanks!

There's no need to be rude; I was just asking for a rough estimate. As a new homeowner and non-professional in the field, I don't know what specific info to include other than to say it's a very small space. But nevermind. I planned on getting an estimate anyway. I hope the person I end up with is friendly.

Ok I wasn't trying to be rude, just a bit of humor.

Moving the door, actually would be more like remove a door and add a new door in new location. Not a big deal if the wall the door is being relocated to is not a load bearing wall and there is no utilities running in the wall if there is either, it can still be done, but it will take alot more work. Stab in the dark say $1200 - $2500

Moving the vanity and commode on the other hand could be a real big deal depending on which direction the floor joist's run, if there is a tile floor, if your intentions are to remove the old tile/flooring and replace with new. Another stab in the dark say $2100-$4000

Moving heat radiator could be the same as above
Say $180 - $500.

And lastly, is this your only bathroom? can you be without a bathroom for a week or so?

What you're asking is sort of like "how long is a rope?". Labor and material prices vary widely from area to area around the country and trying to give a price "sight unseen" is just bad practice.
