Today I'm linking up with "Frugal Friday" at
Now, most wouldn't think that a complete overhaul bathroom remodel would be Frugal but you'd be surprised.
Normally, I don't like spilling the beans on money. We don't have a lot of it, and if I have some, I feel like I'm bragging. But our entire bathroom.. ripping out all joists, replacing all walls, etc totaled out at
To me, that is a steal. My goal was to get it under $800, (I had $400 / month remodel budget) but you know how all the little things start adding up.
Vanity $100 (used craigslist)
Floor joists / subfloor $300
Vinyl and tape $85
Drywall and supplies $80
Pocket door frame $100
Pocket door Revamp (with plexiglass and vinyl sticker) $70
Electrical wiring/switches/outlets $20
Plumbing pipes, valves $30
(2) Rob hooks $30
Screws, nails, misc $14
Seems like a lot of money to me but considering it probably adds about $10,000 equity in the house...
seems like a great deal to me!
And now I get to enjoy it, instead of doing it just to get it sold.
