13.5" will feel very cramped, get at least 15" from the toilet centerline to the vanity.

Cheers, Wayne

I got a smaller vanity. Now I need to build something that attaches to the vanity and covers the hole. The HVAC guy really screwed me. I wish he would've at least cut it rectangular so I could just put one of those grates over it.

Remove the vanity and take a picture of the hvac opening, and provide its measurements. Post it here.

Someone here might have an idea or two for how to deal with it.

If you wanna use a rectangular grate over the hole, Karl, why not just cut a rectangular hole?

Quite the mess with my angle grinder cx. Any way to do it without all the dust and chips shooting everywhere? Coping saw?

That's quite the "circle"...
That's also a horrible place for a register.
It sounded like a sweet setup to begin with, keep the tootsies warm, now you will have a pee soaked grate that spews oude de urine.
I'd be inclined to remove a couple tiles and properly position the vent under the vanity as intended.

They do make vacuum shrouds for angle grinders but chipping out the retarded tile would save you the trouble.

It wasn't great when it was on the wall. It would have been mostly blocked by the vanityt. In hindsight I wish I would have just left it honestly. The HVAC guy seemed to know what he was doing.

My two cents on the vent...

I'm currently in the process of my own bathroom remodel. My HVAC vent was in the EXACT same place you have had yours installed. I just had a friend over this weekend to MOVE it to under the window so I could put a larger vanity in there.
