Goin' Down in Flames....
3" cast iron closet bend might give you the space you need.
Hallway is hardwood. I agree platform will look like sore thumb. Still pondering best solution.I can't see any way that a raised platform around the toilet doesn't stand out like a sore thumb.
You can definitely trim it out and make it look decent enough, but in my opinion it's going to look like a patch job to any non-carpenter who didn't realize why it was gone.
That transition must be able to be buried as you exit the room and move down the hallway, with proper shimming below the carpet
I’ve been doing this for 25 years and never heard of a drop on toilet. I want to see this thing – would solve a lot problems.Doesnt Toto make a drop on toilet?

Thanks... Can't imagine what it looks like or how it makes a good seal in the toilet trap.... or how it could be stable enoungh without bolts.The piece bolts to the flange with a rubber gasket, and the toilet slides down over top, and doesn't require a wax ring.
It doesn't have flange bolt on the toilet
Have a piece of corian or silistone made just slightly larger then the base of the new toilet. Have the edges high polished and by the time you're done installing it, it will hardly look out of place. I've seen it done in a few very nice places.
Quoting yourself is incredibly poor form.:whistling
Don't have one on me, so I can't measure it, but I've done a lot of remodels where the floor was 4x6 joists, and they had 3x4 CI closet bends, and fit between the joists.
Just had 1 a couple months ago.
