We are going to renovate our main bathroom and are thinking of adding a new ensuite in the master walk in wardrobe which is 76" x 57" and right next to the main bathroom.
We figure since we are gutting the main bathroom it would be possible to do the plumbing for the new ensuite at that time.
What we need to known is the wardrobe space enough for a shower, basin and toilet?
Also, what would the rough in cost of something like that be?
It is possible to configure a 3 piece bathroom in a 6'x5' area of useable space depending upon how the room is configured ie the placement of the existing entry door. You may have to consider relocating the door or whether a pocket door would work. Glass walls for the shower would help make the space feel more open. The other issue to consider is the placement of the toilet as it relates to the toilet in the other bathroom and the floor joists. You can not cut floor joists to run toilet drains so if the placement of the new toilet is not in the same joist run as the existing main drain then access would have to be from under the floor.

A 6 x 5 area is small for an onsuite, but is doable. Glen is absolutely right about the orientation of teh floor joists, as that will dictate where some of the amenities will be placed. If the joist are going the wrong way then you might have to add in bulkheads below the bathroom to accomodate the plumbing drains.
Without knowing the finishes and how the bathroom layout would work out, it is hard to know what the budget would be for this type of bathroom renovation. I would think it would be safe to say the starting point is around $5,000 anyways.
