Sometimes if space is tight, this toilet wc area can be combined with a utility room as well but its access off
the kitchen may not be to everyone’s taste. If the access to the garage conversion containing the toilet and
utility room is accessed off the hall way then this is usually acceptable for most home owners.
There is the usual problem of getting a natural fall drainage system in place and sometimes this can become very

pumped macerator system (such as a sani-flow unit) can sometimes overcome this and is an alternative to installing
expensive foul drains.
