Ever seen a toilet rough in like this?

Is that pipe, an elbow, or a "tee"?

I would attach the flange with glue and anchor it down to the floor as well.

Yes ultimately tile will be laid. It seems there are different types of flanges. I am guessing that the flange I need will glue to the inside of this pvc pipe?

yes it looks like 4" pvc can't really tell so you would need 4"pvc spigot flange....that means it slips into a hub...ben

Thanks for the help Ben. My last basement bathroom renovation already had the flange in place so I didn't have to worry. Thanks for your assistance!

What is the distance from the center of that drain pipe to the wall?
Where's the supply line for the toilet?
Not sure how they could have known where to place the drain unless they knew where the finished wall was going to come out.

I checked all of that too. The center of the pipe is 18" from the cinderblock. With the finished wall being a maximum of 4" plus spacing so its not right against the cinderblock, I should have plenty of room for a 12" base toilet. Obviously I will need to run a supply line and stub out once the studs are in place, so all should be well.

The other consern I'd have if the plan is to go with tile is is the expantion seam right there and the crack in the concrete. Yor going to have to lay some form of membrane on the floor first before the tile.
I'm not at home right now and using someone eles computer so I do not have the brand name right now. It's something like Detra. I'm sure one of the tile guys will get back to you soon and give you at least two choises on ways to fix this.
I found it.

Bud do you see a potential problem that I might run into? If I'm not seeing something that I should be please point it out. I'm a novice DIYer but this isn't my first project either. I've done quite a bit actually.

You can adjust that wall width if need be, at least in the bathroom area. Looks like it was roughed in with a 6" wall in mind. By the time you insulate the block and stud it up you should be fine. Just get the stool and be sure of the rough in spacing. It's almost always 12"...but there are exceptions. And you may be able to use an offset flange although it may need a bit of "demo"
