The $4,000 bathtub!

Recommended Posts

At yesterdays inspection the home had a bathroom that I would call unique. It had an open shower area and then it had an old fashion style copper bathtub with a tin liner. It was only a few years old and the owner said the tub cost a little over $4,000.

Yes, the window were not safety glass and the tub drain leaked in the crawlspace.

I'm surprised it's so cheap. I saw a similar copper tub in a customers house and it was $20,000. Honest. I about fell over.

That is what I thought. The price came up when the buyer (6'6" 300lb little guy) asked me how much I thought he could get for it on Craigslist. The owner chimed in and said it cost him $4,000 about 7 years ago. He did say that he also got if from his brother who owned a plumbing showroom.

Oh that's the tub?? I thought it was the urinal. [:-sour]

It's a retro installation. They usually just dumped the water out off the back porch.
