Help me plan my remodel!

Hey Guys,

Hope I put this in the best section.

I am redoing my upstairs bathroom. I would not mind leaving it as it is, but I have closets on either side, and I figure If I am going to spend the time to do it, might as well make it better right???

Here is what I would like to do, move the shower and put a vanity were the shower is now that way I can put a shower insert in somewhere. The problem is the toilet will be hard to move, due to the cast iron pipe coming straight up through the wall.

I posted a picture of what Im dealing with. Maybe you guys could give me some ideas??!?

More info----are you willing to give up a closet?

Hey Mike,

Sorry for being short on info. Yes I would not mind going into the closet across from the toilet and sink. Put a shower insert there. But then what do I put were the sink is now?(maybe a linen closet) and I know I get get hot and cold water over there but Im worried about getting the drains hooked up. Figure a floor joice is a 2x8 or 2x10 right? so thats gives me about 7-9 inches to play with to get the slope right. See the drain is a big 4 inch cast iron pipe that I really cant move, because it is coming up a wall. and Im assuming directly under the toilet.

What is the plumbing wall like down stairs? I might be necessary to open the wall enough to pop the cast iron stack (cut with a chain breaker) so you can convert to PVC.

Breaking the cast iron will allow you to rearrange thing much more easily.

You tub is plumbed in 1 1/2" ---a shower is 2"---go figure.

Hey Mike, think I am just going to leave the cast there. Ive decided not to re-arrange to much. And I dont want to have to remove that pipe.
