    Cool Smallest Shower & Toilet possible?

    I am building a shop and need just a toilet and shower in a bathroom. The sink is going to be outside the bathroom. What configuration would you go with to use the least square footage? Thanks and any drawings would be great.

    The plumbing code will dictate the size of your shower. The following is from the Illinois plumbing code. It would be best if you checked with your local codes for shower compartment sizes.

    Dimensions. Single family shower compartments or stalls shall have at least 1,024 square inches outside dimension (O.D.) floor area and shall be at least 32 inches in shortest outside dimension. All other shower compartments or stalls shall have no less than 1,296 square inches outside dimension floor area and shall be at least 32 inches in shortest outside dimension.

    Sorry should have been a little more specific. It is in the country so there is NO inspections.

    Before any advice can be given, the State the work is being done in must be mentioned.
    The United States has a certain way of doing these things.

    It does not matter if you are in the country or a big city. There ARE PLUMBING CODES THAT MUST BE FOLLOWED!!

    Every State, county, township and city has a plumbing code they follow. If your area does not have its own code then they would follow the county code, if the county does not have one then it will follow what ever code the state follows. There are not if ands or buts about it.

    Then why not just put a floor drain in a room big enough for just a water closet on one, with the shower valve right on the opposite wall with the shower head coming from the ceiling, kind of like a camper bathroom?
