kerdi drain question

I am about to start my shower project. I am replacing a standard size bathtub. I just did the plumbing rough in with the exception of the drain. I have an issue and I am hoping that you could help. I have a joist running smack in the center of the shower area. I was wondering if I would be able to place the drain off center. I really don't want to do this, but I would like to see if this is something that is commonly done. It would have to be about 3-4" off center. I have wide joists. Is there another alternative, such as notching the joist?
This site, along with the two books have been such a big help for me. I plan on posting some pics of the progress. Once I get past this drain issue. thanks in advance

Hi Dustin, welcome! You don't want to notch the joist, can you drill through it? Other wise you will have to off set the drain. This can happen time to time.
