we're gearing up to remodel our one and only bathroom after the new year. in the interest of saving time, we do not want to do the work ourselves... our plan is to keep the plumbing fixtures (just replaced the toilet), walls, window, door and built-in storage where they are, but update finishes and fixtures including:
• replace the vinyl tile flooring with ceramic tile
• replace the acrylic bathtub & surround with either a cast iron bathtub & tile or a tile shower with glass enclosure
• replace sink/vanity with a wall-mounted sink (the plumbing for the sink comes through the floor now, but will have to be re-routed to the wall). . .
Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.

. . .although this looks like a short list, i know there are unforeseen issues that pop up with any remodel (the house was built in 1911 and has plaster walls). i think we are realistic in that regard, but do you think it is possible to get this done so that we don't have to relocate for more than a long weekend? there are those 1-day bathroom "fitters" that i've seen advertised, but what is the level of finish that they provide? anyone have any experience with these companies? or do you or any of the readers have any advice or know of a good contractor in the seattle area that can accomplish this?
Can anyone help Meredith? Seattleites, any recommendations?
