Rough in 3 piece washroom in basement


Looking at my basement 3 piece rough-in I am unsure which pipe is which and why they placed it the way they did. The vent pipe seems awkwardly close to the 4" toilet drain and both pieces well away from the wall. I suppose the builder thought shower in corner by wall with sink next to it and then toilet?

But regardless of what you have now if you want something different...

Hi JPishztam,

When doing text drawings, try using the "code" option and the "lucida console" font. The code option is the "#" icon above the text box when you are keying in your text. The lucida console font is a monospaced font. Courier is also a monospaced font. Here's an example using the lucida console font:
Code:
 
               ----
              |sink|
               ----

               ------
              |toilet|
               ------

==| door |==============

Always select the font before you start keying in the text drawing.
Typing the drawing and then highlighting the text and selecting the monospaced font later does not always result in correct spacing.

EDIT:
*****
JPishztam,
I retract my statements above. Although the technique I described works fine on my desktop PC, another poster said the text drawings I made in another thread were not proper on his computer. I checked them using my laptop and indeed, the forum software does not display them properly on my laptop either.
Sorry for wasting bandwidth,
HRG

I will embed the vent line into the wall which would take me to within the proper distance from toilet line to wall for toilet.
