Amazing DIY Small Bathroom Remodel Renovation for under $5K timelapse

This was a 10′ x 5′ bathroom that was dated and had some water damage. So over the holidays I decided to make it my little project to give it a makeover. Everything was touched, removed all old fixtures, redid floor, wall, fan, pot lights, moved GFI, waterproofed, tiled, installed shower, toilet, vanity, plumbing, linen closet. I did spend a few hours each day for 3 weeks to plan, source and design, prior to the start date.

I’m very proud to say that I completed this all by myself without a stitch of help, aside from some consultation from a friend of mine. Please note that I’m by no means a professional who does this daily. I’m simply a DIYer who believes in himself and enjoys the creative aspect of building.

There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it and believe in yourself.

Thanks for watching!!!



  1. Where’s the bath gone? You could have put in a nice old roll top bath. I like to sit in the bath and soak my cares away and maybe have some wine. The decor is really nice though and it’s a really professional job. To have someone come and do that it would cost thousands.

  2. AWESOME JOB!!!are you a professional? How did you get started? I want to remodel mt guys condo bathroom for him..i love home projects..this will be my first full bathroom attempt🤞

  3. Are you a professional? Only a professional can do that kind of renovation. I don’t know a thing about this… might as well hire a someone
