Plumbing allowances/Free Standing tub suggestions
We are about a month out from breaking ground. Went to price out all plumbing today....quite frustrated with the results vs. my allowances. My dream was to do a cool free standing tub in the master bath. Budget doesn't allow for my $5k dream tub.
Does anyone have cost effective options for a free standing tub? Looking at brands like Kohler and Bain Ultra with the plumbing company today, seems like I won't be able to get a brand name for under about $3500.
Has anyone had good experience with another, lesser known, brand?? I'm trying to avoid doing a built in tub with a deck.
The company also suggested doing a drop in tub with a surround made just for it that would still stand on its own, away from the wall. Does anyone have any pictures of this style???
