Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today.
It might be able to. You would have to take some measurements to confirm it would work out and also consider where the water line would be. Would the water line still be on the same side in the new location? Sorry for delay I type slow.
Did you decide against the phone call? We could certainly determine if the plan would work out through the chat if you like.
Do you have a crawl space under the bath or is it on the second floor?
There is a tub where the planned shower would go?
The original plan to turn it a different direction may end up being a strange configuration for the bathroom and since there is a crawl space under the bath then turning it that way would be absolutely an option. The plumbing could be moved a few inches very easily without having to do major surgery so it very well may be the best option to leave the toilet turned in the original direction and just move it over 2-4 inches with very little effort. Either plan, to move it over a few inches or turn it will require a little bit of moving the plumbing to get the configuration just how it should be. To do the turning of the toilet without moving any plumbing may end up leaving the toilet tank about 2 inches away from the wall and the water line in a strange spot but that would be totally manageable too.
