I bought and read The Owner-Builder Book a year ago and I'm still referring back to sections of it periodically as I work on the related steps myself. I also bought and read The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home, and I still refer to this book as well.

We went shopping at garage sales, and went by our local Habitat for Humanity "ReStore". This place is where builders, remodelers, and consumers donate both used and new construction materials, and Habitat for Humanity sells some of the donated items to help finance their housebuilding projects for the poor. Habitat renovates and builds homes for disadvantaged people all over, and provides them with a reasonable mortgage. They have to qualify, which means having an income, they must provide hours of work on site for a house being built before theirs is started, and other qualifications. Habitat for Humanity is a really good charity, they are sort of like "Extreme Makeover - Home Edition" but not extreme, and not free. They give families a step up into a decent (if small) home they can afford and gives them some "sweat equity" in the home right off the bat.

ANYWAY, there are ReStores all over the place and ours had JUST the corner bathtub we were looking for!  It was installed and then removed, but looks really in great shape. Here's a picture (not the same one, just a stock photo). New, $800+... At the Habitat ReStore, $125. Helping a charity AND getting a deal... can't ask for more!

Jacuzzi-brand tub, "Tara" model. This is a stock photo, not the actual one we got. Ours is a little dirtier and not installed in someone else's house...
