I am updating my laundry/mechanical room. My house was built in the 50s and on a crawl. My laundry/mechanical room is on a slab on the other side of the garage. I have many issues with this room.:confused1: My first question is about flooring. I would like to raise the floor somehow so that you do not have to step up into the kitchen. There is a drain in the middle of the floor and I don't know how to work this in. There is also many components to the AC/Furnace running along the floor as well. Also, I would like to add a shower/toilet/sink in this space as well, we only have one bath in the house. There was a shower that has been taken out, can I connect the toilet to the same exhast as the shower?
