    Sounds like a missprint. What are you talking about being 14"?

      Need more context but perhaps rgh = right?

        With the little information given I think it means Relative Gauge Height, as in the variance in elevation between two points measured in inches, in this case it appears to be inches of water.
        "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
        John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

          If it's used as a description could it stand for rough as in 14" rough cut?

            hope you're not referring to a 14'' ruff in.

            the standard residential tank type toilet is ruffed in at 12'' from the finished wall surface. (commercial flushometer toilets at 10'')

            at 14'' you'll have enough space for a magazine rack behind the toilet

            a 14'' toilet or 10'' toilet is far and few between. "toto" makes a universal flange that allows for their high end toilets to adapt to 10'' or 14''.

            so all that's left is some input from the electricians. maybe it's the height of an electrical plug.

              Rick, it can't be electrical, sparkys don't have anything close to 14" in their shorts

                  Rgh

                  Not too fancy, but only have a one car garage, which is already filling up with various unnecessary to anybody but me stuff like table saw, drill press (yesterday's purchase, the 1550), a router (small but still takes up room). I need to be able to break down the horses, but I'm making them more to get my hands dirty with making stuff, I'm kind of new to all this, but love the stuff that goes along with the hobby. Thanks to all for the answers on rgh. I like the comment about electricians the most, and I'm not fitting in a rough in toilet, its already roughed in, just need the commode and sink and my kids will stop bugging they have to go up stairs when nature calls.

                    Danimal1208 - I find this site very useful and trying to figure out what everyone is saying on forums. In this case "RGH" doesn't come up with a typical acronym, so maybe a typo. Bookmark the link because I've found it very helpful. Regards, Justin
