Bathroom over garage


I have an unused room over a garage. Is it possible to install a bathroom? This would be near the front of the garage rather than the back of it. I was just curious if the kind of piping is even feasible in a situation like that.

You can put a bathroom in many locations. The issue will be where the waste pipe is and can it be gotten to. The further away the waste pipe, the more expensive the job will be. Walls will need to be opened and concrete floors jackhammered.
Is the garage heated?

We had a builder in this area that placed huge bathrooms above the garage--
So ,Yes it can be done----freezing pipes are common in those homes.
