DWV drawing. will this work?

gutting a 100 YO house. This will be the only bath. Main vent is cast iron and I really don't want to cut into it so I am using existing 4" opening.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

I have modified my original drawing. Would really appreciate someone's input.

If the link doesn't work please let me know.
If I have broken some board rule let me know that too.

I'm just a poor schmuck trying to get my daughters out of the slums.

I know the drawing is not to scale and just a rough sketch but here are a few things that look odd.

The 3" pipe for the toilet needs to have at least 1/8" per foot fall and no more then 1/2" per foot fall. So plan accordingly.

The vent for the tub should tie in after the trap, not before.

The 2 vent to the roof could probably be revented into the 5 main stack and save you a hole in the roof.

Im not sure about using a tee for the toilet with a 2 pipe for the sink coming out the back. Id probably use a long sweep 90 and tie the sink in after the toilet.
