In response to Re: Toilet install over cantilever
: I want to move the rough-in for the toilet four feet to the opposite end in my rectangular unfinished upstairs bathroom. The ideal position for the toilet is in the two foot cantilevered area. I think the slope will work, but am concerned about any code requirements and pipes in that area. I'm in Boise and the cold temperature extremes can hit below zero F, but that's rare. Pointers please before I waste someone's time driving out for a bid. Thanks!

Canoer,
I just had to reply since I am an old Boisian myself. The water line should be run high and insulated really well below. Also, make sure that there are absolutely no air leaks anywhere for cold air to blow through. If possible, a heat ducting running through the cantilever next to the water line helps.
