New construction home plumbing issue. Architects placed toilet in front of bathroom door. What the heck- that is where the sink should be! We did not notice until slab was poured and we saw the drain rough in. We want to move the drain at least 5 feet. This is a pier and beam foundation due to lake location and bad soil. Builder said he can cut into the slab, but I am concerned this will cause possible foundation or plumbing issues down the road. We could move the doorway but that means giving up valuable cabinet space. What would you do?

    Could you take a picture of the floor plan of that bathroom and post it? We might be able to reconfigure the floor plan and find a solution without moving pipes. Otherwise we'll be able to tell you if the drafter is to blame. – Dotes Apr 11 '19 at 1:16

    To add a picture: Edit your question and click on the Photo icon in the editing interface. It's the one that looks like a mountain and a sun in a picture frame. Then browse for, drag/drop, or paste the image file. – Doug Deden Apr 11 '19 at 2:24
