When I bought the house, it was a 4 bedroom, 1 bath rancher with basement laundry. We have since "converted" the smallest of the 4 bedrooms to an upstairs laundry, and took the closet out to accomodate a larger master bath on the other side of the wall.
In the very near future, we would like to split the current laundry room into a second bathroom, with tub, and a small laundry space. I am confident in doing all of the work DIY, but am unsure about the structural side of things. My floor joists are 2x8 beams 16 inches on center. What do I need to consider from a structural standpoint before proceeding with this plan?
Thanks in advance.
