Basement Roughed in for Half Bath, Need to make Full & add bar sink

** Sorry for my last post, i didnt notice the pictures were horrible. If an admin would like they can remove my last thread.

Hey There, I am very new to this so I apologize if my terminology is off. We are currently developing our unfinished basement and I am attempting to tackle it myself. I am now starting to look at the bathroom, I believe the bathroom is already roughed in for a half bath (I will attach pictures). From what I understand the capped pipe in the floor is already set up for a toilet drain, the wall beside this you will see another pipe going up, I assume i can connect a vanity drain as well as vent to that? I am just trying to figure out where to start, would someone be able to look at these pictures and point me in the right direction? maybe even post a diagram of what I need to do? I assume in order to add the shower I am going to have to dig up the concrete around the toilet drain and somewhere there tap in for a shower drain under the cement? and I am not so sure about venting for the shower. The open framed wall to the left is to contain a wet bar on the otherside, I also have to have a bar sink directly on the other side of that. I would appreciate any and all input. Thanks!

oh, on a side note there are water lines in the ceiling right above the bathroom in question. I am assuming that I am able to tap into those to supply water to the toilet, vanity, shower, wet bar.

I asked a friend of mine with some plumbing knowledge. He said that I already have venting for the vanity roughed in, and that my shower and toilet do not need to be vented? He also said I would be able to use a cheater vent for the bar sink. would i be correct to assume all that has to be done is some jackhammering, then just add on to the existing roughed in toilet drain to add a toilet and bar sink drain? Assuming my friend is correct, I think all i need to figure out now is if the existing waterline in the ceiling (picture is shown above) can support adding in lines for all the new fixtures (pressure wise, code wise etc.). Is it possible for anyone to tell this by looking at the picture?

Thanks alot for all that take the time out of there day to add there input!

Question

I hate to be critical, but your pictures are still too big and blurry, can't make heads or tails out of them.

The first thing you need to do is make sure your lay-out is correct and then start busting concrete.

The lay-out for the toilet has to be a mininim of 15in to center from a wall or another fixture; the back of the toilet has to be 12in. to center from FINISH wall

Your shower should be roughed-in EXACTLY to the dimensions of what you plan to use.

As far an commenting on your vent situation you will have to break your concrete first, things are bound to change when you see whats below the concrete and how you have to run the pipe.

More than likely the tub and shower are vented thru the sink so one 2" vent is all that's required for a bathroom. If possible vent the bar sink and "T" it back into the bathroom vent. I'm pretty sure you have 3/4" wirsbo pex water lines in your pics. That is enought to feed your new fixtures.
