renovating basement

We are currently renovating our basement. We would like enclose a space for a washroom / laundry room. In this enclosed area we would have a toilet, laundry sink, stackable washer and dryer, folding area for clothes, cupboards and a corner shower stall. The only problem is that the electrical panel is on the wall where we want to put this room. Because we are putting in a shower stall and 20 minute hot showers would steam up the room, would it be wise to move the electrical panel or is there a more cost effective solution? Is there such a thing as a moisture barrier box to go over top of it. Any and all suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks for the help!

Code does not allow a panel in a bathroom. So you'll either have to put the bathroom somewhere else, or you'll need to move the panel. Moving the panel will be very expensive. Moving the bathroom will probably be better.

We were afraid of that. Oh well, we'll move the washroom then. Thanks for the help, it was much appreciated.
