I am looking at buying a house that has a basement bathroom I am wanting to finish. It has already been stubbed and electrical has been added. There is also already a drain. It would be in the same area as the washer and dryer. Assuming I would be choosing reasonably priced toilets, shower, vanity, etc.; what would be the cost of this project? Would there be any issues?

Question ... It would be in the same area as the washer

Answer Extra fixture units added top a drainage system

Question .. dryer Gas or electric an VENTING considerations

Question Assuming I would be choosing reasonably priced toilets, shower, vanity, etc.; what would be the cost of this project?

Answer What does someone consider reasonable?
I bought a Lexus 460L AWD this year it cost over $86.400 without tax or other add extras and I felt it was quite "reasonable"

Question Would there be any issues?

Filing fee's,, large enough water and waste lines and venting of the plumbing fixtures

Hi there
Hard to say if there would be any issues without seeing the actual area.
As far as price, do some research. Find fixtures that you like and add up the cost.
Get a few quotes from contractors.
If you are doing the work, you need to add up all the costs. Material for walls (2x4 , drywall etc)flooring, light fixtures
I agree with Sylvan, reasonable is different for each person
Hope this helps

Thank you David.... Blind bidding a job is nearly impossible to give a "reasonable price"
