Where’s the restroom?

It may seem obvious (and it is) but your community shall provide all residents with a bathroom that is equipped with a toilet and hand sinks. The number of toilets you have should reflect the ratio of 1:4 for communities with 8 or fewer residents and a 1:4 ratio along with an additional toilet for each floor on which residents reside on. Check out the following regulation provided by OHCQ for more information:
