Whirlpool tub and additional shower space: what's needed


I am building a new bathroom. I am trying to design this roughly on graph paper. I am currently looking at building 11x11. I have a 3x5 closet toilet and 60 in double vanity along one wall. I am wanting to put a whirlpool tub and double occupancy shower along the other. I'm thinking of making the double occupancy shower a 4'x5'. The whirlpool tub I found is 72 in x 44 in. Thinking of the room as a square, with the toilet and vanity lengthwise along one side and the tub and the shower lengthwise along the other, is 11x11 enough space? Particularly, I'm uncertain of plumbing space needed for the double shower and tub running side by side and if 11 feet in length will be enough. I am not concerned about the width. Any suggestions for maximizing space?

Why don't you post the proposed plan? Much easier to process then the words.

Each square is one square foot. Triangles are doors. Black bars are windows.

Have you planned out the plumbing runs? Especially the drains and waste pipe. Will the joist direction conflict with the toilet waste pipe?
The room set up needs to take into consideration the main stack. Both the vent to the roof and the proximity to the toilet under it.
The 2" vents of the tub, shower and sink need to come together at the main stack as well.
The bath design works around the pipes and structure.

No, unfortunately, I don't know anything about that...which is why I came here. I wasn't sure if I had left enough space for all that or not. I'm a layman in all senses of the word.

By the way, the shower and the toilet are backing up to the wall to the master bedroom, if that makes a difference. All other walls would be exterior walls.

Is this bath being put in a space where no bath was before? If it is, you need to bring in a plumber to scope out where the waste pipe and drains can be run to hook up to the existing plumbing.
You need to specify what "new bath" means.
