    Hi all,
    Has anyone here successfully applied for a building warrant for converting a room upstairs into a bathroom? Would you be willing to share the plans you submitted? I'd like to avoid paying an architect/designer if possible but in order to make sure I'm not biting off more than I can chew I'd be interested to see the level of detail that's required for a successful application. It'll also help me understand If I've missed any details in my own plans!

    Thanks,
    Neil

    Yep - Perth and Kinross council specifically
     
  4. Probably like others on here I have obtained bldg. regs approvals for many things but it isn't right to give plans prepared for one job for use on another project. You need plans preparing for your specific scheme. You can probably search the internet and find typical building construction plans if you think you can adapt them to suit your situation but I wouldn't recommend it. Converting a room to a bathroom isn't a big building project if the drainage is convenient but you still need to know etc etc etc

    Thanks for the reply. Sure, I wouldn't submit someone else's plans! But it would be useful to see what level of detail and what information they require in the plans to see if I can draft them myself (I have some technical drawing training) or whether it's worth spending the cash on an architectural technician or similar to draft some. Bill of materials is already drafted, as is the layout, but for the warrant they may require some details I haven't planned for.

    Drainage is simple but I'll be getting a plumber in to do it anyway since that's also a requirement of the regs. The soil stack is right outside on the main wall of that room, and there's a WC already hooked up to it. My plan is to remove the stud wall that divides the current WC from the small office room next to it and make a larger bathroom. I need a warrant since I'll be adding a shower and bath, but the few hundred quid that would be spend on drafting plans would be better spent elsewhere if I can...
     
  6. - famous last words :D look on here at the various posts where cock ups could have been avoided if proper architectural plans had been prepared in the first place :!: I presume you are talking about building regulations approval. Do you intend submitting a Full Plans Submission :?:
    I would say that :)
    ps ok, wait for somebody to say it isn't worth having plans done for a bathroom .

    That's kind of what I'd like to get a feel for. The process is described here https://www.pkc.gov.uk/article/15198/Making-a-building-warrant-application and states:

    So I was hoping to see some examples of what others had submitted in the past for a bathroom, to get an idea of the level of detail they're expecting.

    Sadly based on the above, it's not me that needs convinced it's the Perth and Kinross Council :p

    Thanks for taking time to reply!
