Crawlspace access panel in middle of bathroom floor?
Can I leave a crawlspace access panel in the middle of my bathroom floor?
If yes, is it possible to carefully make this access panel so that it does not look too obvious in the middle of the floor?
Why do I want this additional crawlspace access? BecauseÂ
I have currently taken off most of my bathroom floor to do repiping, sewer, structural work and bathroom remodel. Having the floor out made plumbing work so much easier.My normal crawlspace access is inside a closet on the other side of the house away from most of the plumbing network and past a few inner foundation walls with only small (18") gaps to crawl through. So it would be nice to keep a second access closer to most of the piping network. Is it possible / code compliant?
Any advice appreciated.
