I would like to enlarge my bathroom by eliminating a hall closet and using that space. The tub would then be moved over about three feet which would mean having to move the plumbing. Is this possible, and would the cost be astonomical? Thanks.

Hi Kelsey:

What you plan is indeed possible. The cost to re-route the plumbing shouldn't be too much. There's not too much to this. Removing the current drain and supply lines, adding 3' to each of these and re-attaching shouldn't take more that a couple of hours.

I think the major about of cost will be associated with re-locating the tub itself. If you have a standard tub with ceramic walls, this means removing all of the existing wall, moving the tub and putting up new walls. It might be more cost effective to install a one piece fiberglass tub and surround.
