Question Tub drain on outside wall - possible?

We're remodeling our bathroom, and I know there are rules about pipes in outside walls. The tub that we like the most has a center drain/overflow in the back, and I was wondering if this tub could be an option for us or is completely out of the question. The water supply and drain pipes are currently located on the right of where the tub would be.

Thanks for any thoughts you would have on this!

You just have to run the hot and cold supply lines and the drain line over to tie into the existing lines.
Be aware that if you install this on an exterior wall, that you will have to access the faucet body through that wall to replace it, or remove the tub.
You also need to check with your Building Inspection Department about the venting of the drain line (distance).
Good luck!
