I am in the very early stages of planning a bathroom addition. I live in a single family, single story home in San Jose, CA (outside San Francisco, CA). I am planning on adding approx. 100 sq ft (80 ft of bathroom, 20 ft of closet). I know it is next to impossible to get an estimate w/this few details, but is there anyway to get an estimate on cost per sq foot? I know it depends on fixtures selected, etc, but I am just trying to get a rough rule of thumb cost so I know how much money I need to save.

Your plumber will probably be estimating the job by labor and material. I'm not sure how to estimate per sq. ft. Maybe if you supplied your own fixtures (picking them up and bringing them to the job site) you can save some money that way your plumber can't mark-up the prices of the fixtures. Get the plumber's ok first. Most plumber's will allow you to do this. If your looking for a specific fixture, post back and I will scan a color photo of it and email it to you.

most drywallers in my area get about .38 a sq foot including the mudding and taping.You may want to hang it yourself to save$$.Now I own my own painting company and to prime and paint that for you would be a flat fee of about $200.00.But does not include if you have closet doors then you need to add $60.00 per door.
Most painters even being a small project like that have to charge a minimum fee.If paid by cash prolly go to $225.00 for the whole thing.
