Weird layout - need advice please!!!
 
Hello there, new to the forum but it looks quite helpful so here goes. I am starting a remodel on a small upstairs bathroom. The current sink sits in a corner ( so it looks like a triangle) that is definatley not a 90 degree angle. I thought a possible solution would be to put in a pedestal sink but the plumbing does not come out of the wall at the corner, it's off to the side. Question #1 Can I still set the pedestal sink to the corner and get the plumbing stub out to work to fit inside of the pedestal base? Question #2: Would it be terribly difficult to move the stub out? Any other suggestions for solutions for a weird angled corner would be appreciated. Thought about a vessel sink on a floating countertop, but this option is tending to come out to be more expensive. It's a second home and I don't want to spend a wad.
On an unrelated note, anyone have any ideas for a reasonable retailer for frameless shower enclosures? Thanks a bunch...I feel stuck!

You need to know the dimensions of pedestal sink before you can know if it will work

Thanks, I have the dimensions of the sink, glacier bay petite Aragon pedestal sink: sink depth 8.5", front to back depth 17 1/8", sink width 20 1/8" X 35" height. Do I also need the inside dimension of the pedestal itself? How will I use the dimensions information to determine if it will work? Since the pipes would be off to the left of the sink I was thinking I could build a storage box that will also hide the plumbing as well as store towels since there is a storage issue as well.

Pedestal has to set on the side wall to get plumbing connections to work, so maybe your best bet it to build it into a cabinet.
