In reply to Toilet Installation with 14" rough-in by Pam Bereza on October 26th, 2002 09:59 AM [Go to top of thread]

because generally the rough in designation refers to the distance between the back wall and the centerline of the sewer connection coming up from the floor ....Normal rough ins are 112 inches but given you have a 14 inch rough in ,,,just means that if you use a standard toilet for a 12 inch rough in. that would leave you with at least a two inch space between the back wall and the back of the toilet's tank. we had a half bath added during a remodel four years ago and ended up with a 10 inch rough in since the carpenter had to use 2inch by 6 inch wall studs to accomodate 2 inch vent/drain pipes running in the walls. which required us to buy a special toilet for a 10 inch rough in...this ended up costing more for the toilet and we had less toilet choices, since 112 inch rough in toilets were more common. hope that helps.
