Sorry our reno came to 5k but we had a budget of 11k
I think ours was around $15k.
Thanks everyone! This is really helpful.
If you add up the waterproofing for floor, plastering and tiles that was the biggest expense.
Our shower was 'custom' (i.e. we got a glazier to cut glass to the correct size as no showers in any of the bathroom places fit right), we added a bath, our vanity was custom as well (we needed a corner vanity). We sourced our own tiles, and had a trade discount for all fittings etc.
It was a family friend who did it before he retired.
My wife and i renovated the bathroom, toilet and laundry in our first home (now our rental) we did the deconstruction work ourselves and it set us back a little over 20k. It wasnt a massive area but we did change the wall layout and the plumbing locations. It probably would have been 7mx3m all up. It wasnt a super speccy reno but it was very nice when finished. We had floor to ceiling tiling in the bathroom and toilet and custom cabinetry made up for the laundry. We also needed to spend a little extra on a thick screed for the bathroom as our house is raised platform and not concrete pad. If u want pics for an example of specs and work, send me a pm with ur email address. All walls were stud and gyprock, not solid brick

If you are keeping it separate toilet/bathroom do you need to remove the walls or can you just tile existing walls. I have no experience or detailed knowledge on asbestos but I thought asbestos walls are fine IF they are kept whole and not broken up?!?
One of our bathrooms is hideous and next on our list to do.
It could be The ceiling that is. We had a bathroom that had a mouldy asbestos ceiling. Cost $500 to remove
