In response to Re: encounter difficulties when design basement bathroom.
You may be missing two pipes. And the others are out of position, unless the ones you show should be in the wall rather than in the room. You do not have a vent for the toilet or tub, and the lavatory drain is outside the wall which will make a "messy" installation once you try to add a vent to it.

: Hi, Dear Pros:

: I met a problem when I designing the full bathroom in my unfinished
: basement.

: What I understand is that the position of toilet drain determines the
: location of future wall (from center of the drain to wall is 12.5").
: If I get the wall's position figured out, the center of the drain left
: for tub will be 11.5" from the future wall.
: Please refer the picture I've drawn for the design of the bathroom at:

: I went to homedepot, lowes, and measured all the tub, and found that
: overflow pipe should goes down to drain (p-trap) directly and drain from
: tub goes to overflow pipe, which require the drain to be located only
: 2-3" from the wall, but mine is 11.5".

: With the location of the drains I have, the only thing I can think of is
: to have the tub drain goes to the existing drain directly and have
: overflow pipe runs through the wall to the drain left for sink. However,
: the tub drain should only be around 8"-9" from the wall in order to
: to have the shoe sit directly on top of the drain. :(((

: I don't want to dig the concret at this moment yet.

: COuld any pro give me some advice on how to solve my problem?

: Thank you very much!
