My bathroom remodel will cost $12,000. Why does it cost so much?

I saved a lot of money on my bathroom remodel by not using a general contractor that subs out all of the work and handling that myself. One did the tile on the shower and floors, another for the counters, a plumber will take more of your time more...Posted 4 years ago
