I have a toilet that is too close to the sidewall. It is a slab foundation. What are my options for fixing this without ripping up the floor?

I thought orginally an offset toilet flange but I need more than two inches. Would a corner toilet work in this scenario? enter image description here

UPDATE: Here is another picture enter image description here

    Have you checked to see if there's enough room to rotate it 90 degrees, move the cabinet? – Edwin Dec 1 '15 at 23:03

    Could you move the wall? – Tester101 Dec 1 '15 at 23:30
  • It is an exterior wall so I can't move it. That cabinet is a sink and the door is just swung open. – MickB Dec 2 '15 at 14:04
  • sit with 90 degree in which part has space. – Matt Mullenweg Dec 2 '15 at 14:15
  • Can you sketch a floorplan or take a different photo showing the sink? I'm wondering if anything can be done with the sink. – Aloysius Defenestrate Dec 2 '15 at 14:24

its really not that hard to break up the concrete and move the toilet over. the whole move can be done easily in a day with very little mess. then you just have to replace/repair the flooring and install the toilet.

  • While true, this doesn't answer the question. – isherwood Dec 2 '15 at 1:52

    Ha ha... I think when you say that something can be done "easily in a day" on a DIY site without specifying the number of people involved, you're apt to confuse things. I see from your comment that you've actually specified 14 hours of work by experienced professionals, who presumably have the right equipment... And, just wondering, did those 14 hours include pouring new slab after the plumber is gone? Did your time include hauling waste? Was removing the cabinet (which looks like it sits on the finish floor) in or out? – Aloysius Defenestrate Dec 2 '15 at 14:22

    forgot to clarify, this is for non-union workers who are highly skilled, competent at problem solving, and motivated to get the work finished. if unionized, it will need 4 more guys, one steward, one engineer, one supervisor and three more days – personal privacy advocate Dec 2 '15 at 15:40

    In fact. despite the annoyingly misleading URI, this area is not limited to do-it-yourselfers. However many of the participants are trying to put in as much sweat equity as they reasonably can, so it's good practice to indicate whether a time estimate is for DIY, for one experienced worker, or gor a team. If you don't make that ckear, we'll ask... (grin) – keshlam Dec 2 '15 at 16:10
