Good day to all. I am looking for a bit of advice in regards to an extra bathroom. This room was added by a previous owner in an inclosed porch and it was not done correctly and I am left with the problem of either fixing it up or just simply closing it off. The waste pipe was done improperly, the ventilation is poor, and the pipes are all now starting to leak. I am leaning towards closing it off mainly because I do not use it much and I honestly do not have the resources to put into it, because I have more pressing concerns elsewhere. I know an extra bathroom can add value to the house, but property values in my area have taken a nose dive and I am well underwater on the mortgage at this point and I don't foresee it getting any better.
Just need looking for someones opinion who may have dealt with a problem like this before. Should I make the time and save money to do the repairs or should I simply close it off.
