I'm building an addition to my home in the side yard joined only by the roof. The two structures have a driveway separating them. Problems with the contractor has resulted in my completing the project myself and am having trouble finding a good price for plumbing. The work that needs to be completed is to connect the new addition to the existing structures sewer lines (approx 35 feet of trencing & lines), and the existing structures water line (approx 15 feet of water line). The city will not allow separate meters for the two structures. Does anyone have an estimate on this project....and I'm only looking for ballpark numbers. Just want to make sure the bids I'm getting are in line with the average. My first bid is $3500. The plumbing for the entire addition (1100 sq ft, 1 bdrm, 1 bth, kitchen, living) only cost me $3000. Any help would be appreciated.

Depending on what materials are used is a major factor. PVC is not allowed to be buried here, but don't know your code. How is the new main house drain going to be vented properly with that distance? You can try to post your question in the Fix-itFore'm, I believe there are a couple plumber's over there from Texas who might be able to help you out. Good Luck ! Tom
