    I have a 1350mm x 900mm tiled wet area in a small bathroom and would now like to install a deep soaking bath. I will only be supplying the tub, waste. taps and bath panel.

    I'm oversimplfying here but how much should I expect it to set me back to remove the tiling to the height of the bath, drop in the tub in place of the shower, plumb it in and tidy up the tiling? Ideally I'd like to keep the overhead shower. The pipes are behind the tiles.

    I've attached a rubbish picture of the current space.

    Just a rough guide price and how long it would take would be great so I can get the money together!

    Thanks in advance!

    No idea. Just get three quotes.

    Bump - I'd forgotten to mention that I've somehow got to get this done without the missus knowing... hence why I haven't had anyone round for quotes (she's been indoors due to lockdown).

    A rough price and how long it would take to complete so I know what to expect would be appreciated, albeit difficult as you're not seeing this in person.

    An extra detail: the bathtub to be dropped in will be an Omnitub solo plus with waste fittings supplied.

    Gotta ask, why without the missus knowing??

    You'd think she's going to notice a tradesman removing the tiling whilst she's using the toilet....
