    the bottom picture is before they install fiberglass shower pan and the top picture is after they install shower pan. Does that look right?
    From here it does.
    If you can see that the drain is there, it should be fine. I'm guessing they did what was mentioned above. A plumber would have whipped that out.

    It is NOT an insurance situation so forget about that as an option. If you use that shower base, then relocating the "P" trap and riser should be a simple process. The hardest part will be breaking the concrete, but you would have to do that even if you used a bathtub. It if was a "builder" error, then the plumber probably did what he was told to do, because we usually install whatever the blueprint for the building shows.
