Making my own bath tub drain kit?

The tub drain kits I'm finding all look like this:
[ATTACH=CONFIG]56667[/ATTACH]

So, that would be attached to my new tub like this:
Name:  drain1.jpg

But that's a problem because there's a floor joist exactly where the p-trap should be. So, I want a drain kit that looks like this:

Is this possible? If so, what are the names of the PVC pieces I need to make it work?

The type of drain you are looking for seems to be the norm in the UK. I found a few places that have what you are looking for. Definitely not a popular item. Couldn't find the parts separate.

Bath Waste T-Waste Full Kit - CP Friction Lift Drain w/ 1 Hole Face Plate (PVC)

Brass Uni-Lift Direct Drain | Bath Waste & Overflow | Dearborn Brass

Yes, I think that first link is exactly what I've been searching for. The key seems to be the drain shoe and sanitary tee in one piece. As I'm looking at it now, though, it occurs to me that this will require me to get the rough-in exactly right to be sure it lines up. Any tricks that might give me a little wiggle room?

I had found other places that carried a similar product but they were all in the UK.

You have access to it from below.... right ? You still have to connect a trap to that drain.

Unfortunately I don't have access to it from below. It's going to be tough.
