Shana, in tip number two you mentioned how plumbing is often the part that costs the most money. I guess I never really thought about the actual pricing of plumbing a whole bathroom. It seems like being able to shop around for the best prices might help you to save some money. I have a sister who is building a home right now and this might be good advice for her. http://www.milfordplumbingandheatingnh.com/Plumbing-Services-Milford-NH.html

Lin Johnson, you asked about the bathtub under the eaves. IBC code calls for a tub with a showerhead to have the same head clearance as a shower, but a tub without a shower head is not (supposed) to have these same restrictions. The problem can arise because the IBC does not specifically say that tubs without showers do not need head height only that tubs with showers do. So it can sometimes be up to what side of the bed the inspector got out of that morning.
