Finishing Basement - Bathroom Wall Placement


Is the placement of my tentative wall (blue tape) in the picture below correct? The long tube sticking out of the ground is the drain for the bathroom sink, correct? If so, does this need to be in the wall like I see in most framing or can it come up through a cabinet should we want to push that wall to the left a bit?



Thank you for your help!

Edit: After looking at this more closely, I suppose the placement of the toilet drain would determine where the wall would need to be anyway, correct?

Looks good to me.

Yes the long tube is the drain for the sink. It can be either in the wall or through the bottom of the cabinet, but remember that you'll lose drawer/under sink space if you go through the bottom.

Not necessarily. If you wanted to move that wall further to the left then you could move the drain over by opening up the floor and extending the drain.

Don't forget to furr-out for a frame wall against the concrete/tub, pick best for your location: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...study-analysis

Thank you both for your help!

With regard to framing the "tub wall," I was planning on furring rather than a traditional 2x4 wall to allow more space for a tub (my wife wants a whirlpool tub).

Thanks again!!
