Minimum Ceiling Height?

Just want to confirm what my searching dug up....

Minimum ceiling height is 7'6" in habital rooms....

A bathroom can be 7'...

Is this correct?

I need to do a dropped ceiling in my bathroom in order to run drains/vents and HVAC ductwork. In order for my DWS pipe to make it across (and assuming typical 2x4's for ceiling rafters....I would be at about 7'4" on the ceiling height....

This is a small bathroom with just a toilet and shower....

This sound right?


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
