Where to Move this Toilet?
Am remodeling the parent's bathroom now, and realize the passage in front of the toilet to wallk into the tub (now shower area) is really too narrow of a passage. Would like to pull the toilet back about 9", into the wall behind it. The wall behind the toilet has 2X8 studs, and the stack (venting, I think.... It's a 4" white) is along one of the studs.
Apart from hiding the stack, the wall seems to be a false wall.
Am not thinking of moving the stack, but of setting the toilet right next to it (and walling up the stack again.)
Setting the toilet back into the wall would give me an added 9". (The passage right now is a narrow 25", and the toilet is round vs. elongated). I'm expecting I'd have to trench into the concrete and connect to the drain beneath the toilet.
An easier way?:
Have thought also of turning the toilet 90 degrees, having it sit on the same drain hole, which would widen the passage to shower by 3"...but seems odd to have toilet facing oncomers....
Would be great to pull the toilet back, but is it possible???
So welcoming your ideas.
