Englebert Slaptyback: durbnpoisnThis might sound like a silly question, but exactly how would you put a toilet in the basement? Assuming it's below the drains, which it would be, you would require a pump to get the water out of there. And that's not exactly easy considering the stuff that goes through a toilet.Some houses are built with rough-ins in the basement to facilitate building a bathroom later. It would be pretty easy to install a toilet (properly) in such a place.And your assumption is not correct. :-) Even in my previous house (early 20th century) the drains and sewer lines were below basement level.
loaba: Baths and Kitchens are easily the most expensive rooms in the house.As for number of baths required, that depends on your family size (or if you even have a family at all.) Typically, over say the last 30 years or so, you're going to have 2 full baths (tub/shower combo, pisser and sink) and probably at least one quarter bath (sink and pisser.) Extra points are awarded for a what is called a half-bath (shower stall, sink and pisser) and you're off the charts if your master has an ensuite (that's the big farker with a full shower and and a big-ass tub and room for farking easy chairs.)Growing up, we had a 2 fulls and a quarter bath. Since I moved to New Mexico, we've never had more than two baths in our older homes. With 3 kids, it's imperative that the disgusting spawn have they're own bathroom. Kids are filthy.
Yellow Beard: adm_crunch: By the time I'm done with my luxury master bath remodel, it will be the most expensive room in the house. Doing it myself, so I'm saving thousands. Even then, it's gonna be north of $10K. Would probably have been 25-30K if I'd hired a pro.Wait until you do the kitchen. $10k is what I spent on the granite counters. Don't get me started on the cabinets and appliances.
senoy: It'd occasionally be nice to have another toilet since our teenage daughter apparently thinks that a short shower is roughly two years long, but other than that, it's really not a big deal.
hej: Crudbucket: We just moved into a new apartment and the bathrooms are carpeted. I don't farking get it.It helps insure all the stray urine sprinkles get extra fermented over time.
