Default Shop Toilet Room Build

I have a toilet in my shop, but have not built walls around it yet, so finally home and have time to start this project.

Toilet all by its lonesome...


My friend and old neighbor has all the skills and volunteered to help me, on projects like this I generally am the expert holder of the dumb end of the tape measure. Here he is doing something in the corner, I try not to get in the way.



End of the 1st day.



My buddy and general bad *** cancer survivor came by and helped as well, he's BlazerAg on here, but is 99% lurker.




I have some old tin I'm going to wall it up with and will trim out the rafters and door frame in old fence boards, once I find some. I picked up an old barn for in Round Top that I'm going to use for the door.

May add a sink later, definitely going to insulate and add a small ceiling fan.

I considered adding the toilet to my shop but when you figure the cost and to run the pipe underground 200 ft to the septic I couldnt justify spending that much money for a duece .. i can just run up to the main house for #2!.. Otherwise the relief tube is my plan

Ain't that the truth, this got away from me, I would have not done it if I would have know how much it was going to cost!

Is that black pipe your toilet vent? Can you describe all the fixtures you wired? Kind to hard to see on this tablet. Thanks.

Not black pipe, that's the vent assembly.



I'm wired for a ceiling fan with light inside the room:



On the outside I have 2 can lights, 4" LED on a dimmer switch. Want to lower to light level when we have people over and are using the fire pit when the main shop lights are normally off.



And the switch box



I also added a single outlet and reworked my existing outlets to have another breaker. Previously I had all my outlets on one breaker. Now they are split between two breakers.

Nice. Looks about like mine. I left mine prison style for a while as well before walling it in. I added a deep shop sink as well and a small ceramic heater.

Going to be a little while before I get back to this project. Had a little work done to my foot, been fighting issues with it for a few years, this was 3rd surgery, I hope this is the last.

Gruesome pic for the day.

In the meantime I'm working on a chicken house/coop for my daughter, I can do most of what's left sitting down.

Not yet, still no progress. Need to get back on task before it gets too hot and finish this up. I'm fairly lazy, as y'all can tell...

Default Shop Toilet Room Build

Finally made some time and got some work done on this.

Installed insulation in the ceiling and used some leftover wood from my house and made the ceiling and installed the fan/light.



Today I used some old fence boards and trimmed out the door and overhang.



Taking my girls to Silver Wings in Brennan tomorrow for some rolling skating family fun. When I get back Iíll hang the old tin on the walls and then next week Iíll hang the door.
