I'm looking at a property to buy and considering adding an extra loo. Only one existing upstairs in the bathroom.

My thoughts are, box of the alcove in the lounge/dining area and add a door as shown in the attached. The red patches are the existing loo bowels and the intended.

The wall for the intended door is masonry so is supporting. Is installing a door in this position feasible?

I appreciate I have to consider the sewage pipe and ventilation too, the pipe needing a run off angle to the external pipe.

Comments welcome. thanks

Modest doorway sized openings are rarely contentious support wise and can be spanned with timber concrete or steel lintels without much fuss.
