Covering pipe that runs along floor and wall...


So I covered the pipe that runs across the wall with help from someone in this thread...

Covering a pipe that runs along wall?

Now I need to cover another. Any suggestions?

Is this house on a slab?

What's behind that stone wall?
Do you even need that pipe there any more if your converting it?

House on other side of the wall. That pipe feeds the outdoor kitchen that was added as some later date...

I guess I could box the pipe in and make it look like trim but I don't know how I would attach it..,

To turn a carport into living space, the slab is usually required to have a footer. Does yours? In my experience, most do not. Are you getting permits for this job?

There is no pretty magic way to cover this up that's why were asking questions to see if there's a better way to run it.
If there's a crawl space behind that stone wall why not just run the pipe through the wall and get rid of all that exposed piping?

I'd rip two boards, one about 2 1/2" wide and the other 1 3/4" wide and make an L out of them, paint them brown and set the L on the floor with the 1 3/4" on the vertical across the entire room covering the pipe were it sits and just being on the wall for the rest of the room. you can scribe this L to the rock wall and cut out all of the rock scribes in the backside of the L to make it fit to the rock wall. that is concrete so the L would be best to be tough wood, treated or pvc etc... so it does not soak up moisture... use glue when installing and place something heavy a top the L to hold it in place while the glue sets

How about rerouting it over the top in the attic space?

if the spigot is going to be concealed by a cabinet / desk just box out the pipe to look like another leg support then box out another one so that it looks symmetric.
