How much Bathroom? The age old question.

If you’re at a party and you want to start a good ‘ol fashion argument, you can bring up Taxes, religion, states rights or the difference between a 1/2 a 3/4 or a full bathroom.

For every person you ask, you will get a different answer. Everything from, a toilet and a sink is a 1/2 bath. A toilet/sink is a powder room. A toilet/sink/shower is a 3/4 bath. Yudda, yudda , yudda.

Here is what I’ve come up with….

By code, you can not have a toilet without a sink. they go together like peanut butter and jelly.

But you can have a sink by itself.

A toilet-sink-tub/shower combination is a 3/4 bath.

With this you can take a shower and a bath. Depending on how dirty you are.

However that still does not do justice to the toilet-sink-tub and a separate shower. Now that sounds like a full bath!

Of course, this is still just a working theory and does not take into consideration the bidet or the advent of the home urinal.
