The whole house is just single level, stand alone.
Budget wise, it's tight, looking to do the whole thing for right around $1500. Figure the tub won't be but around $200 (many choices in standard anyway at that price), the vanity and fixtures will be the splurge ($700-800). Hubby is making the vanity mirror out of cedar (picked up a large mirror for $5)! We already have flooring (solid wood bamboo - I know, wood in a bathroom?! But we picked it up at Lowes on clearance for right around .40/sq ft, total of $30, and at that price if we have to tear it out in ten years, we'll be okay
and the toilet, maybe $100, unless we find it on clearance too. Our plumbing will be free, aside from cost for materials (a friend of ours is a plumber)... So all in all - flooring being laid is free, plumbing being ran is free and we also have a friend that does electrical... We'll get a discount on that anyway.
When we redid our kitchen, we got all of the appliances on clearance at Lowe's for $800 total and sold our existing appliances for $400. Our flooring, countertops (used marble tile) and backsplash came to about $300... So if the math is correct, we did our entire kitchen for $700!!! (minus cabinets).
