Re: How would you make this current room a bedroom maybe with a bath?


You see the puzzle if you can't move the kitchen door, the plumbing too far from the wall, or back door. Maybe your renter can live with a bedroom entered off the kitchen, or walking through to get to the laundry or back door, but a buyer wouldn't value it compared to a tried and true 3 bedroom. The "bonus" room that's there now seems adequate - I have houses with additional rooms that are not advertised as bedrooms (but more importantly not taxed!), but some tenants choose to make it a bedroom anyway.

I agree maybe just a 1/2 bath back by the laundry would be good.

1/2 bath would work well.
I can get the plumbing anywhere in the room I would just cut the floor and run my lines.

IDK what a standard bathroom looks like but could a guy run a hallway close to the wall? make a room and a half bath on one side of the room?

Re: How would you make this current room a bedroom maybe with a bath?


I would create a layout that provided a simple and direct way to run the drain line to your septic tank or street sewer line. With a bathroom you want light and a window and there can be privacy considerations on one wall versus another depending on what is outside. With the plumbing you will also want to allow for the pipes to provide venting for the sink and shower drains.



Allow space for a closet even if it is open and only has adjustable shelving for people to store linen and cleaning supplies, etc.

A Bedroom must have a smoke detector tied into the other ones.
It must also have a means of Egress and Regress. Make sure your plan shows that for the permit.

Egress and Regress

Don't mean to be nit picky but I think the correct terminology is "ingress and egress".
Meaning "in and out'.
Most municipalities require sleeping areas have at least two means of ingress and egress in case of fire. Usually two more doors or a door and a window large enough for a person to pass through.


Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately they do not require a permit to regress (to go back) as we age. If they did, I would probably be under the jail house.

I've never fully understood ingress, egress, regress. Next time I see the local building inspector I'll ask him. I thought regress was emergency responders being able to enter the building.

The question would be more appropriate for your grammar teacher.
