Toilet installation in laundry room

I am looking to convert a laundry room into a 1/2 bath. I have access to the pipes below and fortunately the current slop sink is where the new sink will go. This bathroom will be onagainst an exterior wall My question is around the toilet. Does it needed to be vented out through the roof? Any suggestions on how I can avoid running a new vent to the roof would be appreciated. thanks.

Larry14422, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Unless there is an Air admittance Valve made for toilets and it is legal in your area, the vent has to go above the roof. Although it would possibly freeze, it could be run up the outside of the wall. Still has to go above the edge of the roof. Good luck.

Check with your local code office. I do not know how your current plumbing is run and there may be a way of tying in to an existing vent.

thanks for the welcome and the response. I might have to break down and call a licensed plumber to take a look. The last thing I want to do is have a problem with a toilet after I put the room back together

How big is the drain pipe. It needs to be 3" for the toilet.
