We are in the process of renovating one of our two bathrooms with a general contractor. I'm learning a lot through this experience, and am thinking about acting as my own general contractor for the second bathroom.
Seems like it would involve hiring and coordinating a plumber to demo and install a new tub, an electrician to put in new lights etc., and a tiler/handyman to finish up the floor, walls, and fixtures.
I'm wondering if anyone has done this, and has words of wisdom to share? Will I be biting off more than I can chew?
The main reason I'm thinking about this is that I realized the general contractor is charging a huge markup. The plumber told me that he was charging $1000 for demo and new tub installation, which is not even 10% of our quote. Are there some costs that I am missing?
