Do it yourself! Anyone could teach themselves the skills needed to do a bathroom remodel. Tear it down to the studs and get started!
If you have trouble along the way you can always hire someone to come in to set the new bathtub or topcoat your drywall. The majority of the stuff is a piece of cake. With the money you'll save buy a marble bath tub or a custom wenge floating vanity.
Back in the day I even went without a toilet for four days while I tiled the only bath in my tiny Chicago condo. With enough guts you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to!
Quit surfing the web and start swinging your hammer!

As a homeowner, I do know that bathroom remodels can be very complicated.
A professional needs to have certain skills in order to do the job properly, from start to finish.
Not everybody has the skills that are required...
Most people don't, unless they have been in the bathroom remodeling business, as there
are a high number of things (behind the scenes) that can only be accomplished by an experienced professional.
I am very handy around the house and do a lot of my basic projects myself.
I listened to you tell me, (on this forum), that I could remodel my own bathroom myself and I
went ahead and started...
Bad mistake on my part!
I soon realized that there are many factors involved that require an experienced professional, and
my basic knowledge of home repairs was only enough to get me into a big mess.
After screwing things up, I finaly got off of my high hourse and called some professional bathroom remodeling companies for help.
I got a few bids on the completion of the project and each one of them told me that it would cost me
significantly more money to do the job, because they would have to tare out many of my mistakes and start over,
with the whole project.
They were able to look at my bathroom, and assess it with an expert eye.
What I thought was looking like a good job, only through my eyes of inexperience, turned out
to be a disaster... (And yes, I am very handy around the house)
Too make a long story short... Listening to your advice several years ago ended up costing me bouble the cost I would
have paid, had I simply had the job done right, by an experienced professional, in the first place...
Thanks a lot for your crummy input, Aaron Berlin!!!
Why don't you just go away, and stay away!!!!
