Laundry Room Framing & Plumbing

Post by TomK » Wed Nov 27, 2019 3:12 pm

Hi Shannon,

Reviewed some of the forum posts done earlier so I got a general idea of what I could do. However, wanted to bounce some ideas off off the folks here and ask a couple of questions:

1) If I have piping close to a wall such as this, how can I go about framing it properly?
2) Planning to move the drainpipe, sink and vent away from the wall by about 2" inch to make room for the XPS and 2x4's then enclose it in a new vanity. Can I move the vent pipe to the corner?
3) If I have XPS then 2x4's, can I enclose water and drain pipes in the 2x4's? Since this will be on the cold side of the insulation, what's the danger of freezing?

I think you would be fine to move the vent towards the corner. I would not recommend leaving drains or water supply lines in an exterior insulated wall.
