Framing in Angled 4" Pipe in a wall


Hoping someone can help with this...

My thoughts are to frame the wall the length/height I need to, then measure and cut the studs to allow the pipe to fit inside then use some strapping to reinforce the cut studs.

The inside (in relation to the room) of the pipe sits flush with the wall that has been already built.

Any other ideas?



Thanks,
Mitch

Is that a clean out near the floor? You'll want access.

The wall your building continues straight (following the concrete) or turns 90 at the sewer stub?

Thanks

Did you vapor barrier between the insulation and the concrete?

I think the current thinking is to discourage visqueen on the stud faces. As it traps moisture that is wicking in from the concrete

Yeah it is a clean out. Was planning on putting an access to that.

The wall will continue for another 4' straight past the clean out.

The poly is just on the outside of the studs (not between the concrete and insulation), then glued to the concrete wall on the outside edge.

You could pad out 2x material glued to the concrete and straps to keep them aligned but I think that would be over-kill. Looks like 36" or so from stud to problem? Just bridge it with one piece of sheetrock. Its not load bearing. The only person who would curse you was the guy who wants to hang the flat panel TV there.

IMHO.

The more I think about that the more I like it.

If you did align them with strapping and glue to concrete, eventually somebody is going to come along with a stud finder and try and hang a flat panel TV there.

Better he find no stud than one that is not load bearing.

The distance to the outer edge of the pipe is 40".

If I do it that way I would need to strap a 2x to the joists to hang the drywall, correct?
The drywall in the space between wouldn't end up bowing at all? Makes me a bit nervous that if somone/something bumped into it wouldn't hold up...or should this not be a concern?

If it were me, I'd frame around it. You,ll just have a small bumpout is all.

Yeah, 40" is a bit of a stretch. Frame a bump-out would be my suggestion as well.

Framing in Angled 4" Pipe in a wall


my idea would be to, use a 2x6 for bottom plate from the 2x4 wall already built. you can notch around the pipe keeping your 2x4's to the front of 2x6. you can offset a stud if needed? or add a blocking to put your stud on. no bumping out at all. everything in a straight line.

Id say go with 2x6 top/bottem plates then turn the 2x4 studs on edge like framing a wet wall fot plumbing atleast over that area anyway

Its a sewer line so it should be all good. Supply lines are the ones you have to be careful of.

Concrete wall suggests below grade foundation so supply lines would probably be OK too as long as they're not in the Arctic Circle.

Thanks everyone!

I like this idea. I will have to take some better measurements to see if putting the studs on edge will keep the walls flush with each other.

If you have only 3/4" then build the wall with an angled stud/plate below the pipe, and above the pipe, keep it 3/4" back from the all surface and put 3/4" plywood on it to join the top to the bottom.

As far as it being a drain line and should not be a problem, that is generally true s long as there are no P-traps in it which have standing water in them.
