In response to Re: Moving a toilet
You can get a 14" toilet that will solve the moving back problem, but unless it is more than 15" from the side wall you should not move it over. And sometimes it is a lot harder to move it a little ways than it is to make a big adjustment. It depends on how the pipes are arranged.

We are planning adding a small sink in small bathroom that currently has a toilet 14" from the wall. We want to install a new toilet nearer the wall and moved to the right. The problem is a joist below the floor limiting my ability to move the drain back to accomadate a new smaller toilet. I don't really want to box around the joist and cut into it. Are there offset flanges that would work in this case? Am I also wondering if I am asking for draining problems if I do use an offset. The toilet is on the first floor above an unfinished basement. Any comments and or suggestions appreciated.
