how does one know where to place drain pipes?
this is a brand new home, we are trying to build ourselves. Slab on grade. How many inches from the wall does a toilet drain go? is it 12"? and bathtub? shower? sink. Is there a set dimension?
Can you recommend a book for us to follow?
Would be very much appreciated.

A water closet is 12 " from the finished wall so take into account how the wall is finished.
A lav should come up withing a foot or closer from the center of where the Lav is to be installed.
Get the rough in specs for the shower to find out where you want it roughed in.
Make sure to use closet wrap on the WC rough in.
Hows this for incentive:
If your not careful and plan this right have a Jack hammer handy because you will need it.
