How would you frame around this drain pipe?


Is the best thing to do here just build the wall in front of this thing? I would really hate to lose the 3" or so but figured i would ask you guys how you would do it.

I'd consider building that wall in two sections---one below the pipe---another 'pony' wall above it --so that the drywall clears the pipe--but no framing is in front of the pipe.

nice, that's a great idea. the wall under the pipe will be attached to the soffit under the I beam and the wall to the right. Is that too much of a span to not have it attached to anything other than the floor? approx 15 ft.

What about moving the pipe? Is it possible to run it down between the joists to the far wall right from where it comes through the ceiling, then drop down to the concrete wall and then go to the outside drain?

Use a 22. cal stud gun to nail blocking to the foundation--nail the loose ends of the wall sections to the blocking---------

how about a 2x6 wall below the pipe and a shorter 2x6 above the pipe, that should give enough ledge past the pipe to notch the upper shorter wall around the pipe and still sit on top of the lower top wall plate ledge. for the long span use double top plates, 16' is average wall plate sizes- be sure and pick up straight lumber from the building supply. The other option is as oh'mike mentioned, the block wall insulation on the upper portion of block wall will need to be moved where you need to brace back to the concrete for the upper pony wall support.
