I think you need to rethink this project. take masking tape and lay out the floor plan in your den or other open space.
5 foot double sink unit=10 sq ft.
2 1/2 x 5 tub = 12 1/2 sq ft
toilet with elbow room 3 x 4= 12 sq ft
That totals 34 1/2 sq ft leaving just 11 1/2 sq ft standing room. out of that 11 1/2 sq ft deduct any section of wall or partition that intrudes into this space and maybe space for a cupboard for towels, etc.

It is possible to make a nice bath in this space but it's going to be a little tight. you should consider anything that will save some space. like a shorter single sink counter because it's unlikely two people could use this room at the same time. A moderately large shower stall would still be a little smaller than a tub.

Whatever you decide, lay it all out on the floor with masking tape so there won't be any surprises.

: We purchased a home in another state and want to install a full master bath in a space that is currently a powder room and an adjoining walk-in closet. We want a 32x60 whirlpool tub/shower combo (ceramic tiled shower), new toilet, new 5' double sink vanity with corian counter, and ceramic floors. There needs to be some drywall work, but the entire space is only 46 sq. ft. My questions are:

: 1. Is it likely that we could get this done for $15,000 or less, using a General Contractor?

: 2. What are some of the pitfalls that we can avoid when negotiating with a contractor that would increase the price?

: 3. Using a General Contrator, how much should we expect to pay per square foot for a new, not over the top, but nice bathroom?

: 4. Any other advice you could think of for people who have never done this before and do not want to get burned?
