basement bathroom

I'll be building a basement bathroom soon and would like any helpful hints to make the job easier.
I'll install a 36" shower, a pedestal sink and a toilet.
The length will be 8'.

-is 3' width acceptable for a 3-piece bathroom of that legth?
-can I use pvc piping for the entire project...can I use flexible hosing for the water lines or am I restricted to copper pipe?
-the main drain will be about 15' feet away. Once I've boken the concrete, is there a certain "slope" that I should ascertain?

-any other hints?

Typically, 36" shower stalls are 36"x36". Therefore, to get in the stall, you will need at least 5-6' depth. If you are planning on using a pivot shower door, take that into consideration.

Check the plumbing codes for your area to determine what type of materials you can use.

I've always used a rule of thumb of 1/4" drop for every 1' run for drain pipes.
