I find a $350 basic tub works just as well as at $3,000 tub. Avoid jetted tubs. They are expensive. They require additional electrical and permits, and to be honest, no one uses them. They just end up growing mildew in the pipes. Even many builders are now cutting them out. Replacing a bathtub with a spacious shower.

You must be … Read More

I purchased the items myself, then had the contractor install them all. In the end I saved about $300 that way. Everyone should try to see if they have a store like that. I think it might be ran by habitat for humanity.… Read More
