I'm running plumbing and electrical conduit for a 4' x 5' bathroom that I

Since it's going in a workshop, not a dwelling unit, it would seem to be ok.

I can't turn it around in this scenario as it was going to be mounted on
an end wall. Any other suggestions besides moving the conduit out of the
bathroom. I've already partially buried the conduit, but only like 12' of
it. Wouldn't be a problem to relocate, all that's involved is a little good
ol' fashion manual labor in digging the new trench.
Just trying to get around from relocating if I can.

Is the plumbing roughed in yet? If not, and you can spare
a 3' wide "wire room" next to the bathroom, just scoot that
over enough to frame it in and hang a 30" door on it, and
you'll have a utility/storage closet. I know you'll likely
balk at wasting space for that, but I'm sure you'll find
something to keeo in there.
