Bathroom upstair

I am wanting to add a bathroom to my upstair attic space. The attic is not very large. The attic is off of the upstairs loft area and is over the kitchen. Plumbing and electrical will all have to be ran. I am trying to figure out if this can be done and a cost estimate. Not trying to make it high end just practical. Also I should say my house is 100 years old. Any suggestions or idea on price would be helpful. Thanks

No one on the net is going to be able to give you any prices, going to have to just call around locally and get some quotes.More often then not people see all that space and figure why not use it.
A whole lot more to it then just throwing up some sheetrock and flooring.
Going to need to get framing, wiring and plumbing permits.
More then likely the joist will not be wide enough to support a floor.
The open rafters will had to be added onto so there's room for the proper amount of insulation and foam baffles.
A ridge vent will need to be added if there is none.
Knee walls built, HVAC added.
Code approved stars and railing.
And that's just to make an empty room, now add on the cost of fixtures, plumbing, wiring.
Going to be one expensive bathroom.

A bathroom on the attic. Looks like a very hard project and costly. Beside you mention that the space isn't big. Then why thought of putting a bathroom when the space isn't big enough?
