what does rough in for third bath mean?

Help the community by answering this question:


Rene, generally, if the house is already built, it just means that the plumbing is there for a 3rd bathroom but there is no actual bathroom there. Having the plumbing already there makes it easier/less expensive to put a bathroom in when you are ready to do so than if the pipes were not there.
I hope this helps!

We would assume "rough in for third bath" would mean that work has begun for this feature but is incomplete at the current time. The best source for more accurate information on this may be found by going directly to the source. They should be able to provide the specifics.

Good luck,

Usually rough in for a bath means the plumbing and drains are there, but the bathroom is not. This usually refers to an area in an unfinished basement.

it means completion of the preliminary work to rehab or build the bathroom. inspections by the local government building code authority are required of the major systems (electrical, HVAC, plumbing), particularly for kitchens and baths. those inspections occur once after the initial stage of work, or 'rough in', and then again after completion. in order to obtain an occupancy permit, the developer has to have passed all inspections.
