After trying every solution he could think of, including calling the manufacturer, Dan finally decided he needed to order a couple of elbows, to come up with his own solution.

You can see that the plumbing is a tight fit, but this was the best option. The dryer is on the other side of that wall, so putting the plumbing in the wall with an access cover was not a likely solution.
We still have to install the shower riser kit, but that should be more straightforward because the faucet was a part of the kit.
The other thing he got in was the toilet, although it, too, still needs the water supply connected.

It's the same make and low water flush model that we installed in the kitchen bathroom. It isn't the cheapest toilet on the market, but unlike some low flush jobs, we know it does what it's supposed to. Happily, I found it for a really good deal at Home Depot.
Once Dan gets the water hooked up, we can actually start using this bathroom! After he gets the shower riser installed, the sink and vanity will go in next. Then it's almost done except for towel racks and a door.
