We have a small bathroom maybe 6x8. We need to get a new tub, wall surround, either a new vanity or reface the exisiting one, and tile floors. My husband and dad are willing to do all the labor but is $2,000 unreaslistic? It really needs to be done so I am wondering where should I start?

If you want to remodel a bathroom for $2000 you are really cutting it close. Provided that all of your labor is free, and that all the existing plumbing and electrical can be used the way it is, and you buy the most inexpensive tub, tile, vanity, counter top, sink, faucet, and toilet to go into the bathroom. You might be able to get the parts alone for close to $2000.
If you encounter anything that needs repair along the way you are going to need to add a bit more money into your budget. I would start by pricing out all the bits and pieces that you are going to put into the bathroom and see where that gets you, at least that will get you close to parts cost.
