My husband and I are adding a bathroom to an older home and wanted to tie in the plumbing to the other. We live in the country and have no rules or regs or codes to live by but to be safe and make it work. We are inexperienced with anything other than necessary plumbing, like changing out a toilet or bath tub or fixing a leak, but to cut and tie in seems more difficult. We have asked for quotes from local plumbers but they seem to be outrageous,

So what we need is a few hints on where to start, and how to be successful at adding a working bathroom without much expense. We can provide the back work and grunt work, but the know how is up to someone else…..

Thanks in advance for your help…..
