Need To Build Small Half Washroom/powder Room


Hi
We have 37 w70 inch long space. My question is that can I build small half washroom/powder room in this little space. If yes then please provide ideas.
My other question is that from where I can buy small vanity/ sink less than 15 inch width.

Sure. I can start working on a design sometime next week.

I charge $125/hour, with an 4 hour minimum.





















Pssst.....Andy.

I might have a small design project for you. It'll pay $90/hour.

I'm being bored this morning so I will help you out. Use compact wall mounted toilet and a pedestal sink and it will work.

That said, thinking about this size toilet I was thinking about this article I read about China... Since they dealing with living space limitations where the average living space is calculated to be approximately 50 SF per person in comparison to the USA Correctional Facility where estimated living space per Prisoner in shared dormitories have an average Prisoner space of 49.5 SF per person, and for a Maximum security prisoner living space per prisoner is 75 SF... So, in this case, an 18SF half bathroom can be considered a luxury.

Good luck

Tile the inside of that and put in a shower head and drain, and you have a 3/4 bath...

Corner sink and corner toilet will allow the space to be even narrower.
