framing around drain pipe in basement
 
I'm framing my basement and am starting the bathroom framing. I have a drain pipe running vertically down the wall from upstairs and it goes directly into the concrete in the basement floor.

The sink/vanity that will be going in the basement bathroom will be using this drain pipe.

My question... How close should I frame to the drain pipe to leave enough room for the plumber to rough in the hot/cold water lines?
Should I place a stud on each side of the pipe? If so, how close should each one be to the pipe?

pics and or plan drawing.

Where does the sink sit in relation to the stack. I assume he will be bringing his supply lines down from the ceiling as opposed to up from the slab. Is the sink sitting against a block exterior wall or interior stud wall?

This is a conversation you should be having with the plumber who is onsite and looking at the situation. There could be a cleanout that needs to be installed along with what you're familiar with.

Here is a link to some photos of it. Yes the water lines will come from above and I'm framing a wall against the foundation.

Why not let the plumber do his thing and then box it in?

yup. easier that way.
You already have your header and footer in place so let him do his work and frame around it.
Probably costs less too if the plumber doesn't have to work around and drill through the framing.
