P trap / S trap

I'm renovating the kitchen in an old house. The existing trap to the kitchen sink is an S trap and I want to replace it. However the house sits on a stone foundation that, due to being over a foot thick, extends a good 6" inside the plane of the interior walls. That is, the closest I can get to the kitchen wall if I drill up through the floor from the basement is about 6 inches. Is it still possible to fit a P trap in this situation?

Sure. Get rid of the S trap situation, and install a P trap turned to plumb down to the drain pipe. The drain pipe has to be vented after the trap if it isn't already.
Good Luck!
