I am moving forward with my dream shop (36’ x 36’) and now need to make a final decision on a layout for a small bathroom before we pour the concrete next week. I want to have a toilet, sink and shower in about a 5’ x 8’ space(more if needed)-I am having a hard time designing a layout!!

Any ideas? I would appreciate hearing any feedback and seeing pictures.

Thank you,

Bob

You really need a shower in your shop?

My shop bathroom has the slop sink straight ahead when you walk in and the toilet off to the side.

36’x36’? Wow! Is this for a business or hobby?

I would make sure you have a utility sink outside the bathroom. Hot water would be nice and on-demand water heaters are getting cheaper but still a hefty investment, you could get a 5 gallon electric heater and turn it on when you first get to the shop. The size you’ve spec’d sounds good but that depends on how much space you need for the rest of your shop.

I second the idea of a utility sink on the opposite wall of the bathroom sink.

I prefer to have my utility sink in the finishing room. Bob, planning the shop is almost as much fun as working in it. Enjoy!

A “Chic Sale” out back and you could squeeze in another machine.

My advise is dont do it. In my state a bathroom makes any structure a livable area.

Now that’s an angle I hadn’t thought about. It could bring into play a whole lot of code issues that would be a real headache.

On the other hand, when the wife is in a snit and tells Bob to “go spend the night out in your shop” the facilities would come in handy.
