    Each fixture needs it's own vent. I don't know any inspector that would pass this. Your traps will siphon out.

    Default vent

    Your drains are near a vent, but they are not vented. Throw that drawing away, and make a new one. There is nothing about that one that will work, and in some areas you cannot even connect a drain line to a cleanout.

    I suspect that your original plumbing is not really just like you have drawn. Others have pointed out that venting is much more complicated than shown on this drawing. As drawn, nothing is to code.

    Default lowered floor OK

    here are some things I feel comfortable commenting on.

    1. You maybe don't have to build the floor up. As shown below. The shower p-trap might not get in the way. The toilet (which has a p trap inside it) needs room for its drain. Another thread i commented on in the Toilet forum had the same problem of needing to sit an inch high so the drain would connnect.

    2. The top part of the vent can be built as shown below. No need to run separate pipes.

    3. The washer drain connects into the vent pipe first, before connecting to the drain.

    How you get the vent through your building 'envelope' (i.e. to the outside) is not something i can comment on.

    I am not a plumber. In my municipality, and in my high-rise concrete building, I wouldn't need as much venting as you have shown - with four vents for four drains/fixtures. I am not a plumber.

    I need to hook up with a computer nerd and created a plumbing software that is the simplest to use but creates the best drawings whether isometic or plain stick drawing.

    ^^^^

    Idea above is a future retirement plan, screw saving money.

    I've been directed to sites that already offer that but the way they are designed.......you have to be a computer nerd to use it.

    We need simplicity.
