estimating plumbing work

Ron S.'s picture

Would like to have a ballpark estimate of the hours necessary to rough-in the plumbing in a new 500 sq. ft. first floor cottage. Delling will have wood flooring. Bathroom will have basic tub/shower, water closet, and a lavatory. The kitchen fixtures will consist of a sink and a dishwasher. Near the bathroom will be a  35/40 gal water heater. I would also like to have a rough idea of the hours necessary to install the five fixtures and the water heater. I'm not a trained plumber, but have some knowledge and handy with tools. Appreciate any information anyone cares to offer.

So do you want the time it would take a plumber to do this, or the time it'll take you to do it?

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.  --Herman Melville

I'm sorry I didn't make myself understood.  I'm only interested in having an idea how many hours a licenced plumber would need to do the work. Thank you.
