The main thing is where can you make room. A 32" shower is the smallest. You open up the lavatory wall and you can access the water pipes and vent. The drain runs underneath the floor and may need a vent coming off that line and up above the lavatory before connecting to that pipe.

Another possibility is the basement if your have one.

I should have stated this is in the basement, where I can extend the bathroom wall another 2-3 feet.

If you already have a toilet and lavatory working in the basement then that is an advantage. You will need to break concrete from your new shower drain to the main and to a wall for your vent. Select your shower unit so you will have your rough in measurements. First you will do your underground, then the framing, water lines and set faucet, then the unit and finish with the drywall.
