How am I going to build this door?

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise. So I want to build a door/wall to separate the commode from the rest of the bathroom. Its sort of an awkward angle - how would you recommend I go about installing an interior door? Any advice?

Welcome to the forums.

Do you just want a privacy door or do you want to block the entire commode area off ?
If you want to block off the entire area you will need to build a wall over the top of the door.

Appears like you might have enough room for the door to swing inward to the left, will have to tear out the drywall at the opening to install an interior door, lot of work but appears doable!

Question is, what is the width of the opening (angled part bottom photo drywall on left to drywall on right.)

And what is the distance from the front left corner, bottom pic to the angled 135 degree inside corner on the left?
