En-suite conversion

Postby tony77 » Mon Feb 23, 2009 10:48 am


I'm thinking about adding an ensuite bathroom to our main bedroom. The dimensions of the bedroom are approx 15.5 feet by 10.5.

The shape is therefore similar to a tennis court. My thoughts were to put a small ensuite bathroom in one corner of the room- building against the inside wall-on the other side of which is the existing bathroom- therefore making plumbing a little easier I hope.

What kind of price would I be looking at to put an ensuite in, consisting of shower cubicle, toilet and hand rail, complete with a door?

Simply Build It

It may make the plumbing easier from a hot and cold feed scenario but the toilet soil pipework might yield significant problems. You may have to strengthen the subflorr timbers as well.

Frankly it would be impossible to cost this on a site unseen basis.

Suggest you get 2 or 3 people in to give you a quote. The you'll have an idea.

Sorry but I don't think that sticking a wet finger in the air will be suitable. It will be wrong - one way or another.
