In response to Re: Converting 1/2 to include shower stall

: We are thinking of converting the 1/2 bath to
: include stall shower. The space in the 1/2 bath
: excluding the sink is 30"x6". Is it possible to
: install both the stall shower and toilet in this
: space?

: The main reason is for elderly who can not climb
: the stairs to take a shower downstairs.

: Any help in this regard (model recommendations for
: toilets/stall shower) is greatly appreciated.

: Thanks.

If the bathroom is only 30" wide, a shower cannot be installed. The minimum size shower allowed by code is 32" X 32". The powder room will need to be enlarged to add the shower. Most codes also require a lavatory basin if there is a toilet installed.
Good Luck. e-plumber
