In this scenario, we're talking a full-scale tearout/rebuild type of bathroom remodel.
Please keep in mind, this is a best-case scenario. As with anything in life, bathroom remodeling may not always work according to plan.
But we can hope, can't we?
Bathroom Remodeling Timetable
|Demolition||2||Nasty work that may take longer if bathroom is on second story or otherwise difficult to move materials out of.|
|Rough Carpentry||2||Optional: You may not need any carpentry if the underlying structure is in good shape.|
|Plumbing Rough-In||1-2||Plan on the full 2 days or more if you are moving services like tub and toilet.|
|Electrical||1||A good professional electrician can move swiftly, so it would be unusual for this to go more than a day.|
|Insulation||.5||A fast job.|
|Hang Drywall||1||Drywall may be begun the minute insulation is up.|
|Finish Drywall||2||Finishing means applying joint compound, letting dry, sanding, and sometimes repeating.|
|Tilework||3||Optional: you may not be doing tilework, but like drywall, there is the applying/drying cycle that takes time.|
|Cabinetry||1||There tends to be minimal cabinetwork in bathrooms, so this should go quickly.|
|Flooring||2||Plain vinyl floor could go down in a morning; tile, engineered wood, and the like will take longer.|
|Fixtures, Etc.||1||Hooking up toilet, sink, etc.|
|Miscellaneous||1.5||Allow some time for contingencies.|
