Good morning -
I need some guidance on dealing with a local building inspector. Here's the situation:
I'm remodeling two bathrooms in my house in Connecticut, built in 1737. The bathrooms (located one above the other) are roughly 5' x 9'. The fixture layouts (which I'm are staying with in the remodel) are tub/toilet/vanity along the 9' interior wall, which also includes the 30" door into the interior of the house. I laid out the fixtures as best I could to meet code (which the plumber is telling me is 16" from toilet to tub. He didn't give me a number for the toilet to the vanity.
So, the rough work is done and the plumbers and I call for the inspections on plumbing and electrical. The inspector says the distance required between the tub and toilet is 19", and he won't pass us. Aside from the aggravation of moving the plumbing rough-ins, I can't meet his 19" offset in the available wall run.
Can someone point me to the correct building codes on-line? The plumbers, inspector, and I are scheduled to meet tomorrow to hash this out, and I want to have some ammunition.
