    Toilets rough in at 121/2" off of the rough wall.You will need a minimum from either side of your wall to the centre of your toilet of at least 16 inches. When remodeling your bathroom or adding a bathroom;you can look at different fixtures to install especially bathtubs or showers.Tubs come in 3 and 4 pieces and this helps greatly when it comes to getting them into the house.The centre section of a 3 piece tub is generally 38" depth area and does not bend.They also make 4 and 5 foot showers.

    I would personally look at a 4 foot shower that has a seat in it as well.Very nice to look at and a great selling feature.Although the homeowner will make up their own mind when it comes to this decision.Toilets now can be roughed in at a few different measurements as well.American standard has one that you can rough in at 101/2 to 121/2 inches;as the tank adjusts on the bowl.What ever your decision make sure you have done your research and take your time .Good luck and have a good day.RESEARCH.
