I am considering renovating the one and only bathroom in my small, semi-detached house. But since it's the only bathroom, what to do while the work is being done? I am/was hoping to do as much of the work as possible myself, with at least one pair of helping hands, but can anyone give me a realistic timeline for how long the work might take? The room is fairly small, about 5' X 8'. The tub, sink and toilet all need to be moved.

I just talked with a friend today who recently spent two weeks redoing a bathroom in a house he rents. He replaced the floor, moved the stool, moved the sink, ran new wiring, and probably redid the walls too. He did all this during his off hours from work, and told me there were many nights he was up past midnight. I should add that he's very experienced at this sort of thing. Less experience might equal more time.
