    We are proposing to build a small ground floor extension which would include a toilet/shower room directly off the kitchen. Mechanical automatic air extractor to be included. I have had mixed reports that this might or might not be a problem with regard to building regs. Does anyone know for sure? Thanks

    Hi ryoc
    As far as I know there must be two doors between the rooms. In other words, a door to the kitchen, and a door to the shower room, with possibly a small lobby area between.

    We have the same setup at home. A kitchen with door to utility. Then a door in the utility to the downstairs toilet. The door is a big solid heavy one for sound proofing as well:)
