Hunter,

I assume you are talking about the drain flange for the toilet? If so, the centerline is typically installed 12" from the FINISHED wall surface. So, if you're using 1/2 inch sheetrock, it would be 12-1/2" from the wall.

I forgot about the "finished" part of that requirement when I installed my drains, and mine ended up 11-1/2" from the wall. I had no problems installing the toilet, but I suppose different models may not be so forgiving.

If you're talking about the water supply line, I think I placed mine about 8" to the left of the center of the drain, and 6" off the floor. It's not real critical. I think I actually shifted mine a couple inches left or right to accomodate the stud spacing.

The toilet itself should be centered in a space that is at least 30" wide. If you have a wider space, keep the centerline at least 15" from either wall.

The water supply height depends on your baseboard trim. The standard is 6" above the floor and 6" to the left of center. If you have tile and high trim, then you end up trimming the escutcheon, which looks horrible. Otherwise, like awatson says, it's not critical.
