Minimum height for extra toilet/shower in loft

Anonymous user 24 June 2019 - 11.17 AM

I need to do a full re-roof and get a new pearl put in due to some structural issues. I'm thinking of possibly getting the loft done at the same time to allow it to be used for storage. I don't have the height to do a full conversion and don't want to drop my ceiling. The highest point in the roof is 1.65m. I don't need any more bedrooms or living space but an extra toilet and shower would be nice. Do the building regulations apply to extra toilet/shower in the loft e.g. will the hight I have be ok? Or will that count as living space and need the full 2m height?

Toilets come under building regulations so I would have thought that you would need the room to be at least minimum height to have a toilet which I think is 1.9 but I could be out by a few hundred mill that I always look for 2.2 when all done as I know for sure that 2.2 is acceptable You would also need an extractor fan for all new bathrooms on building regs So if you don’t have the head room then I would suggest you don’t do it as you would never get it signed of

Anything above 2mtrs is good 2.1mtrs is preferable so that the shower head height is sufficient to widen the spray effectively.

If your purlin needs replacing and your thinking of using the Attic for extra space enquire with planning / building control to see if you can alter the pitch and style of the root if need be to accommodate your requirements
