Island sink & washer properly vented


We are remodeling a 40 year old home in Missouri. Can a licensed plumber review the attached sketch to be sure we will have no drainage problems and that everything will meet code. Missouri uses IRC, we are in the country, so no city code requirements.

The vent we want to use is in the center of the house, we want to move the sink so it is in an island overlooking the great room. The laundry is in the basement and uses the same vent. The sink and washer will drain into the same drain, that then connects to the main under the concrete.

See drawing attached for more detail.

Thanks

Don't know Missouri code but by UPC you can't do what you have drawn.

for starters, you cannot tie another vent into the island foot vent.
your washing machine has a s trap- not allowed
vertical sink drain cannot tie into that vertical vent (which as drawn, is not a proper vent) connect it to the stack.
I am required to use 2" drains for washing machines and kit sink. I.5" vents
The island illustration that you found originally was prolly the only legal way. Don't modify the foot vent
