Today, we are seeing master baths with larger walk-in showers. Many with double shower heads and built-in seats. You should keep at least 2 of the tubs in your home for those wanting to take a real bath and bath little ones.
When it comes time to sell, if you do a good job with the master bathroom you should be fine. You will have some to say, they want a tub. The majority will like the big walk-in shower.

There is no simple answer since it will depend on what kind of finishes you want and what your existing utilities are like (plumbing, electric, gas).
A typical "builder" quality home in Austin costs around $80 / sqft. This would represent, for example, a new subdivision home without upgrades. Due to the lack of economies of scale, a remodel will always cost more for the same qualify of work. So as a ballpark, figure $30,000.
If your home is on a concrete slab foundation, adding plumbing can be expensive if, for example, drain lines are not easily accessible from the garage - it can involve jack-hammering up concrete to tie in. On the other hand, if you already have plumbing in the walls near the garage, it isn't so hard (I moved a W/D to my garage without touching the foundation because there was already a drain line and water supply 10 feet away. Since you have a utility room adjacent, you may not have to dig in the foundation - for drain lines it all depends on whether the plumber can achieve the proper slope so the water drains properly.
If your house is built on piers and beams, it is usually much easier since the plumber can get under the house and access all the plumbing from there - no jack-hammer needed.
You should be able to complete the remodel in a month, give or take, once you have decided what you want to do. Making changes after the work has begun will draw it out longer.
Good luck - contact me if you would like more information!... more
