venting for laundry, kitchen


hello everyone,

i have a small house with all plumbing fixtures on 1 floor. Currently, this is what my dwv system looks like:



i apologize for the very crude MS Paint drawing.

The house was built in 1953, so i don't know that this is necessarily up to code. There is one vent stack(shown on the right).

i have my laundry room completely ripped apart and i need to figure out if i need to add any additional venting before i do anything toward putting the room back together.

i have a copy of the code, but it's difficult for me to grasp what they're saying with out physically seeing it.

So i guess my question is, how does this look, and what will i need to fix?

thanks in advance for your help/advice.

Jamie

Do you have a picture of the actual existing plumbing?

Id like to see how the actual plumbing is done in order to get a better idea of how to vent it
