In response to Re: adding a master bath, in bi-level
: HI!!
: Need some help please. I am buying a bi-level house in VA... The house was built in 1969 and only has one bathroom. Being married and having two kids i need a second bathroom *grin* anyway...
: what is the best way in putting a bathroom in the downstairs of this house. there is a utility room (about 20 x 20) below the upstairs bathroom that doubles as the laundry room, so there is access to water, and electricity. The floor in that room is concrete, no carpet.
: A friend of mine told me that instead of breaking up the floor (because of hydrostatic water problems - something about the water forcing itself up through the floor) that i should build a false floor for the new bathroom which would raise the toilet and shower. This, if it would work, seems like a good idea, but i did not see any drainage pipes (didn't look that hard yet either though).
: TIA

This is a major undertaking and is not a good first project for the do-it-yourselfer. There are tons of things that need to be taken into consideration. You need a plumber. Get several estimates.
