I was talking to an extended family member the other day about the Master (shower) bathroom upgrade blog post.
and I realized that I didn’t say how much we spent on it.
a) American Standard toilet – about $270 with tax (we had it delivered to the local Home Depot so we could inspect it before it came home)
b) Toilet Seat – We had already bought the seat for our old toilet in that bathroom. So, I guess it cost $0.00 for this upgrade.
c) Wax ring – I ordered the one off the Home Depot website at the same time as the toilet. It was about $6.00
d) Flooring – A box of the flooring costs about $53.00
I will use that amount even though the ‘cost’ of the front bathroom flooring was really twice that since we needed one piece from this box to finish that floor (which really makes this bathroom flooring free).
e) Paint – We had a 1/2 gallon of the paint sitting in the garage so it was good to put some of it to use anyways. So, the cost of the paint in this remodel was $0.00
So, the total cost for this bathroom upgrade (not counting our time and labor) was about $330.00
I think that was definitely worth it to get a bathroom that saves water, has a new floor and is what we wanted.
