I see no problem with that setup, but if you cared, you could just make the door swing towards the vanity instead of the toilet.  You could also make it outward swinging.

Younger bro and I just finished removing the old bath tub.  That thing must weigh at 200Lbs, I just kinda wish we hadn't moved it.  We found a lot of rot under and the side that's against wall.  We have rebuilding to do.  Oh well, better to find it and fix it now than while taking a shower and ending up in the cellar.  Roger

The bathroom renovation is coming along pretty good.  It's been 3 weeks of working on it but not pushing it.  The tub and toilet have been removed.  The rotted areas have been removed and repaired.  We had to rebuild about 2/3's of the floor and about 1/3 of the wall.  A soffit was constructed to hide the plumbing of the upstairs apartment.  Most of the electrical has been roughed in. Now, we're working on the outside wall, lots of concerns there too.  After the old insulation (if you want to call it that) was removed I was able to inspect everything.  With exception of some minor rot on some pieces the repair will be minimal.  The problem we found however, was that when they built the house they never attached the outside sheathing to the studs so if looking down the length of the house from the outside the wall bows outward.  I've got to find a way of attaching everything without removing too much of the siding but I may have no choice due to the sheathing isn't the usual plywood, it's planks that are the length of the house, about 40 feet long and about 2 feet wide and an inch and a quarter thick.  The fun of working on an old house.  Stay tuned for more updates.  Roger
