Step 1 - Planning

Your bathroom should be more than near the waste line of the house as possible. This will make the plumbing easier as you do not need to drill the walls or floors take as much space. For the toilet, you will need to add a line of garbage that is at least 3 inches in diameter.

You must also ensure you have enough space in your bathroom more to meet code requirements. It will be an absolute minimum of 66 inches long by 30 inches wide if the sink and toilet are on opposite sides, and 54 inches by 48 inches wide if they are side by side. Once you have determined the dimensions of your bathroom plus a sketch of the plumbing you'll need and where you put it.
Step 2 - Starting the addition

To start the bathroom more, you need to frame the walls even if you do not have to add drywall yet. With the framework in place, you can start adding the plumbing. Remove the flooring to expose the subfloor. You can leave the floor in place by the cup properly. If a joist where you plan to put the toilet, you will need to rethink your plans and go to the bathroom a little.
Step 3 - Plumbing

Start by laying down the plumbing drain. You'll need to move the addition of a bathroom to the sewer main to the house. When the connection between the parts, use purple primer on each of them before sticking them together. When the toilet will sit, you'll need a closet flange that attaches to the toilet. To ensure that the proper height, the backerboard tile screw to the joists, then drag two tiles on them. Finish by pressing the flange on the floor.

Remember that you will also need to plug the pipe through the wall acts as the vent pipe. Run all the way to the attic and join them at home other vents.

Step 4 - Copper Pipe

You need to add copper pipe water to the sink and toilet (the toilets will be a separate branch line to cold). To do this, you will need to add new lines on the lines of the existing house. To do this you need to turn off the tap at home, perforation of the pipe and sweat solder copper pipe for your bathroom. Wherever possible, keep the lines of copper and right if you need to bend, use a good bender.

If the pipe is 1 ¼ inch stud or plate, you will need to cover this area with a small steel shield to prevent possible punctures. Once the plumbing is in place, you're ready to add the sink and toilet in their plumbing in.
