There was approximately 18" from window wall to the tub base. The distance to allow for cleaning around the tub depends on not only the distance from the back wall but also depends on my access from side to side. If I have access from side to side then I can have as little as 12" behind the tub and still easily clean. I hope that helps!

Your car mechanic is marking up any part that goes into your repair or maintenance. And you can bet that their labor rate includes a % for overhead and profit.

I describe the markup an non COGS (cost of goods sold) expenses that have to be paid for as part of any project. Every customer needs to share that expense. Anne did a nice job describing them.

Lastly, if the homeowner wants to supply fixtures or finish materials then I am going to charge more labor to install them to cover the missing overhead. This is how we make a living and homeowners need to understand the business side.

Try asking your dentist if you can supply the filling materials for your next cavity or the tires for your next auto purchase to the car dealer.
