Thanks, I appreciate your comments. I'll wait for a few more guesses before I throw out my numbers.

My total cost was $3,150

Very roughly, some of the individual costs are;
  • tub $280
  • vanity $700
  • toilet, sink $250
  • wall tile $450
  • floor tile $300
  • Kerdi membrane $250
  • Infloor heating $250
  • sink faucet $60
  • shower faucet $120
  • Schluter trim $40
  • ceiling drywall, lights, paint $150
  • crown $50
  • thinset, grout $80

There was a lot of other small items I didn't include in the list but you get the idea.

The only items that I kept was the countertop and mirror, everything else is new.

My budget was $3,000 so only over $150, not bad. Of course that doesn't include the gas I burned with over 40 trips to Home Depot

That's what I was thinking. And then I was going to have to be jealous and hate him not only because of his great work, but because of how cheaply he did it.

Now I just have to be jealous and hate him for the great work he did.

Thanks for the detailed posts...I relatively new to the diy scene, and I always enjoy learning from everyone here.

I have a 70s 5x8 2nd bath that I want to tackle later this year, so I really appreciate this thread!

Well done. I laughed out loud when I read your comment about carrying the leveling compound through the house with your $3 bucket.

We put similar floor tiles in our main bathroom (we being the contractor).

Only question is how hard is it to clean those tiles in the tub/shower?

Just curious as to how you finished the shower tile where it transitioned to the sheetrock. Any close up shots?

Looks nice! I'm about 1/2 a finished basement away from starting on our master bath. ;-)
