      Does it at least have a shower? A toilet and a sink in the kitchen is what most certainly a home needs to meet bare minimum code..

        There's a trend of small, minimalist, off-grid homes built in the hills near here, the majority of which have no tub. Almost none of them have a dryer hookup and many don't have a washer hookup either.

          I just finished a bathroom remodel that eliminated the only tub. The home owner said they never used it and considered it a waste of space. Replaced it with a giant walk in shower.

            Thanks I was just clearing up an argument with a carpenter and his customer I thought it was at one time though correct. I agree that no one baths anymore and even our two year old showers.

                  Maybe, but you'd be surprised how many parents are having thier kids shower instead at younger ages. I mean really, most toddlers can stand up, and I personally would rather they be in a shower to clean up than a tub where they could drown. They might use the tub up until a couple years old at most, and heck, some might even just bath them in a large sink or wash tub and just forgo the tub all together as its only needed for a couple years of age. Honestly, I hate tubs, I can't wait to rip mine out and put in a nice walk-in shower. I don't plan on selling, but when I do, if someone is dead set on not buying because of no tub... so be it, the next buyer probably wont care. Just how it is.

                    Eventually they will outlaw bathtubs, it is too wasteful in regards to water...

                    Anyone have an answer to the question from a code standpoint? I recall its a toilet and a kitchen sink, but times (and code) has changed... You dont even need to have flooring or interior doors...

                      MB, I believe your correct. I believe a place to bath of some type is required, but I could be wrong. You do not need final floor coverings for a CO as far as I know. Doors either, trim and stuff like that is not needed for a CO, it usually is granted on a "conditional CO" though.
