Rough in spacing


Here is my bathroom rough in. Please see pics. 2.5 inch pipe in floor( sink drain). 4.5 inch pipe in floor (toilet drain). 2.5 inch pipe in floor box (for shower). 2 inch pipe for venting (upper left side of 346 pic-stub hanging out of ceiling). Sink drain and toilet drain seem awfully close. (14.5 inches from centers apart) Any ideas to help plan layout of vanity/toilet, hopefully without busting concrete?

Those are the only pipes?

If that was meant to be the sink drain next to the toilet drain, it is in the wrong place. It should be coming up in the 2x4 framing behind it (look at other bathroom sinks in your house to see).

Can you tell if it is meant to be a floor drain (is there a p trap at the bottom)?

From center of toilet pipe to the face of framing needs to be 12.5" for a normal toilet.
Run a trap arm off the toilet vent for the lav

Well you could always pipe hot water to the toilet then it could be used as a dual purpose fixture.......

Looks like the jack hammer is coming out of the rental strore

Those are the only pipes. I realize it isn't in a framed wall like others i have seen. Didnt know if i was supposed to build a short wall around it or something else i was missing. I remember the guy who lived here/built it telling me he moved it from another location in a similar house for some reason(better placement than the other house he had built?) It looks odd. It was a short sale so he wasn't real pleasant to deal with at the time. I havent opened up the pipe to look down as i am not ready to do any actual plumbing at this time. It figure it has to be meant for the sink since they plumbed the other stuff.

It looks pretty cut and dried to me-
Toilet stub and vent that also serves for the lav drain
Shower box looks like a good spot- don't see it's vent though
Water should be close by
Knock yourself out

To TheEPlumber: My concern is with the spacing between the two. Am I going to have to rest my arm on the vanity while taking a seat on the toilet?

I guess its a matter of where you put the walls. I assumed that the toilet vent would be in a wall that continues off the existing corner. So if you're sitting on the toilet, the lav is to your right.
