3/4 or 1/2 inch pipe in cottage

I am about to do my plumbing in my cottage . There is a kitchen sink a bathroom sink and shower . its all on one level and the source is a jet pumped shallow well.The pressure will be 50psi . Should I use 3/4 pipe throughout or 1/2 inch pipe. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forums! It is always best to check with your local authorities before doing any work like this. A good practice is to make a home run of 3/4 pipe the full length of your house with 1/2" stubs to each appliance (tub, sink, toilet). That way you will have twice the water available a the appliance, so when someone flushes a commode, you most likely won't feel any pressure change.

Thanks Chandler. I have been leaning towards 3/4 and reducing at the faucets .My cottage is really a hunting fishing camp and is only small. The $ difference probably will not be that much.
