I am planning to convert my hallway closet space into a full bath. This is a single level SFH in Fremont with crawl space underneath. The width of the existing closet is about 3 feet and the length is about 8 feet. I am looking to put a small stall shower (32x32 inches) and am alright with a small pedestal sink.
I would really appreciate your advice on any permit issues in Fremont, as well as, any suggestions for a good contractor.
Right. Sink and toilet only, and the doorway would have to be in the middle of the long-side. No way to get all three in–you couldn’t walk past the sink to get to the toilet. Unless you can somehow put the sink OVER the toilet.
The issue you have is clearance in front of each fixture. Assuming 3’ is your width, it just isn’t possible for a full bath. You should be able to squeeze in a two piece with either a shower or toilet facing the entry door.
Just keep in mind that this is a non-standard bathroom at 3’ wide.
@Terri, there is no other place to put the second bathroom in our house. The bedrooms are really small and the family room is small too.
Someone suggested that the toilet can be placed in a corner in a diagonal position giving it more room. Then a pedestal sink (with no vanity) can be put right next to it, possibly giving room for a small stall shower.
I have a corner pedestal sink in a tiny spare 1/2 bath which could leave a small opening for a thinner person to squeeze by if there were a shower stall on the opposite side. However, with a shower, the main issue would be ventilation.
@Whoami, what are your 1/2 bath dimensions? What if the toilet was in the corner and pedestal sink (about 1 foot depth) in the middle of the bathroom? Then there would be enough room to walk to the shower, right?
