Most common place in your house to create a new bathroom
Usually, the best place in your own home for a new bathroom is in the closet. Yes, right! Look at your existing house layout. Nearby your existing bathroom most likely you will find the closet with the same attached wall. The same wall where the existing water and sewer lines are.
Trust me, the best scenario is keeping all your water piping in one area of the house. As of right now in Atlanta GA area, plumber charges for one point allocation or relocation around $600, so you don’t want to pay extra if you don’t have to. For the start, look at the existing plumbing location, then check around if you can put another bathroom above or below, or maybe next by even, and still tie into the existing piping lines. That is the saving key on your future bathroom remodel project.
When your crawlspace a big plus
Homeowners with single-story layouts will have the easiest time adding in a bathroom. Because they can simply run the water and sewer lines through a crawl space below.
One more important challenge with new bathroom add on
You need to keep in mind, that NO MATTER how many stories in your house, you still have to install an exhaust fan. In the best scenario, your exhaust fan must vent to the outside of the house.
