We're building a new home and paid for the rough-in plumbing for a basement bathroom. In the model, (which I have been told is not customizable outside their allotted plans) the roughed-in lines were along the stairway in a good location for a future bathroom. When we were asked to do our pre-drywall walkthrough, we noticed that the drains were located more into the center of the basement which is totally different from the model and very inconvenient to add a bathroom without breaking up the concrete and moving 2 of the 3 drains.
When I asked the builder, they told me that "rough in" meant a rough location as well as no fixtures. Since this is my 1st built home, I was wondering if the location of the plumbing is subject to any location in the basement? Bottom line, I want the drains where they were in the model. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I did not receive any prints nor was I asked to approve the location or told the location for the rough in was different from what was in the model. I have been told that I cannot change anything from what is offered in their plans as the house is "not a custom built home". Typically, can I request a copy of the basement plans as drawn?
