New house plumbing costs


We are just getting ready to start the process of building a new house and I was just wondering what I might expect to pay for plumbing on a house with a main floor with 2.5 bathrooms and 1 in the basement. I just want the rough-in costs I will install all the sinks and tolits.
Thanks
Tory

I have but, it takes plans and lots of other things that can factor in the cost of doing the plumbing for it.

New house plumbing costs


Washer? Dryer? Water heaters? Gas or all electric? How many floors? Bathrooms stacked or on opposite sides of home? How about a kitchen? Additional prep sinks? Pot filler over cook top? Steam unit in master bath shower? Utility sink? Laundry sink? Outside hydrants? How many lavatories in each full bath? Is there only a tub in each full bath or a tub with separate shower area? Wet bar? Kitchen sink along wall or in the island?

What about heating? Radiant or forced hot air? Geothermal or heat pump?

All of these things affect the price. You should get an estimate based on your plans from a local plumber. Trying to guess this one is gonna be hard.


Ron's got you covered at the low end of things. The upper end has no end in sight yet.
