shower installation cost

I need some guidance on what is a reasonable cost for 2 Wedi shower installs (4X4) & (3X5) plus set tile & grout; mud/waterproof/set tile for two tub areas; and tile and grout floors (approx. 275 sq. ft.) Porcelain tile size is 18"x 18" for all...very little detail work, just border only. This is three bathrooms...estimates are ranging around 10k. Includes cost of Wedi units, backerboard, fasteners, waterproofing material, setting materials, caulking, grout (TruColor) and changing out drains for Wedi. This is a remodel that turned into a rebuild and we've put alot of sweat equity in it trying to stay within budget, but don't have the expertise for this. Any advice is appreciated.

We're told not to quote prices because it messes with what people expect from that point forward even in an entirely different part of the country where material and labor costs vary so much.
Check with local sources?

Let's see how this goes.

Questions involving pricing, such as – “How Much” certain projects cost – cannot be properly answered simply by information posted on an internet forum (regardless of how much information is supplied in a particular post).

Pricing for materials may be determined at your local supplier(s). Prices for subcontracted work are best determined by getting legitimate local contractors to submit written estimates (3 are suggested) and always checking references.
