I have a basement that has the rough-in for a bathroom. I am looking
to finish it and have a few questions. I understand the Toilet flange
mount point/wall needs. However, based on the drawing below(not to
scale), I am wondering:
1. The roughin is I believe 2" PVC. Can I tie in the three sinks you
see in the picture to the one drain/vent? Will this work or do I need
a separate vent for each sink?
2. The dotted line represents the proposed horizontal run. As long as
I keep the pipe sloping downward to the rough-in, can I make the 90
3. It is a deep pour basement, so I have to use 10' lumber. Due to the
cost, I don't want to overbuy/build. With the pipe(dotted line)
running through it, do these walls need to be 2x4, 2x6, or double 2x4
with the pipe running in between? If I do go with something over
single 2x4, how do you handle the door jam thickness? Most pre-hung
doors seem to have thinner than 6" jams.
4. I have a stub for the shower. I want to do the walls in ceramic. I
am going back and forth between prefab fiberglass shower pan and doing
a mortar bed/freeform shower base. Is the mortar bed style way over
the head of a pretty handy homeowner?
Thanks for your help. I'm hoping to start this this weekend, so wish
