Lol me too, anyway i shifted the toilet bowl position, instead of having it right at the end, to be at the front for a better layout. My id also design a siting area since need to build a structure low wall to hide the piping.

It will be like when i am bathing, if i lazy to stand, i can sit and bath... lol super lazy...

Hi. Can check w you how did u change ur toilet bowl position? I was told that toilet bowl position cannot be shifted. I can only rotate the facing of the bowl.

Edit:

Saw ur pictures. Does this mean u will increase floor height to cover the piping or u have to buy specific toilet bowl only?

You can shift the position by changing the connector type. There are the p type and s type connector, sure can be done, you must buy the type of wc which will have to suspend and install to the wall and must create a allowance for the water tank to be install. The cost of such wc normally will be higher then those normal type by 300 to 500 dollars in price.

Cant increase the floor height, there is a guideline to follow. And wc waste pipe are not allowed to be concealed under the floor tiles.

Its kinda hard to explain but once the actual thing is install, i will post photos to show how its done. A picture speak a thousand words.

You can try Legrand, Schneider... many hardware shops do carry these brands.. for those retro old school or industrial theme, MK brand has this silver grey box/panel kind.

Day 20 into the renovation. The entire electrical wiring for the house completed. Awaiting the Aircon Piping, Optic Fiber Termination Point and Network cable to be install.

This is the pipe which extend out from the orginal wc hole.

This is where the new wc position and the water tank is located on the back.

Wow! A picture really speaks a thousand words. But wonder why those ids and contractors I spoke to told me cannot be done. Hmm.
