From a rough to a bathroom


Hello all... I'm finishing my basement and know next to nothing about plumbing... so I'm trying to get an idea of what kind of work will be required and a ballpark figure on how much it'll cost. I'd love to hear that it's possible for me to do some of the work myself, but I have a feeling that most of what I need now is a job for a pro.... Two things...

1) The bathroom is roughed now. I need it to bring it to a level where the drywall can be installed (and I'll put in the shower, toilet and sink afterwards)... any idea on what this will take and how much it might cost?

2) Like everyone else, I'd love to have a mini-kitchen area in the basement as well... but there's no piping for it currently. I have some concept of what it will take to get water *to* to the area... but the drain for a sink and dishwasher to get water *out* is a different story... will this require digging into the slab or can this be accomplished with a pump or similarly nondestructive solution?

thanks for any insight you can provide... odds are good you will be telling me something I don't already know

great.. I'll see if I can stir up some pictures tonight... unfortunately, it's not possible for me to put the kitchen and bath on the same wall since the bath backs up to what is clearly a bedroom
