Where can I put a second toilet and how much am I talking?

We moved from a house with 3 toilets into one with one. I won't go into TMI about why it isn't working but suffice to say I am desperate for a second toilet. I spend my time trying to work out where/ how we could fit one and I'm getting nowhere fast. Starting to wonder about buying a shed and plumbing one in, it's that bad sad

We had originally planned to turn what used to be the pantry into a toilet by putting in a wall and a door into the hall. There is already a window so it would be ideal. BUT the kitchen is very small (8ft x 7ft) with very little usable space and 2 doors, so there would be nowhere at all to put the fridge/ freezer if we did that.

The other option would be to build on the back but the ground level is about 4 foot lower than the concrete "path" immediately outside, so there would be a lot of digging out. I'm assuming even for a small building we'd be talking 5 figures? Anyone know of a way to do this on the cheap?

No option of under the stairs, because that is effectively where the pantry is. It's a 1930s semi, traditional front room, back room, tiny kitchen.

Could you put the kitchen in to the dining room to make a dining kitchen & convert the existing Kitchen into a utility with a toilet at the far end (& possibly a shower)?

It might mean moving the back door into th enew kitchen but it's a nice solution

We probably could, but we deliberately bought a house with a separate dining room because we wanted 2 reception rooms and not a kitchen/diner smile

My parents have a toilet under their stairs in their 30s semi - is tiny but perfectly usable. Not sure how much it cost.

We are trying to work out where to put one too- no space under the stairs in our small house...

Sorry jus read your last paragraph blush

Friends are putting a second toilet in the middle and extending kitchen I think...
I agree, if you have the money - think laterally and draw the downstairs and then play about with walls etc (my mother-in-law does this, is habitual mover - is amazing)
