replacing studs with pipe in the way


How can I replace studs in a shower when existing pipe is in the way? The old studs are rotten at the bottom, but they also have a pipe and a wire drilled through them.

1. Remove pipe and wire and drill hole in new stud.

2. Remove only bad part of stud. Put filler in and then sister a piece new 2x4 to span the joint. Glue and screw together.

Thanks for the quick response - I'm not 100% sure which I will do yet - #2 is certainly easier, but I may want to take the wire and pipe out to drill so that can I add another stud to slightly expand the shower width.

go with option 1 ,just take the wire and pipe out ,replace the stud and drill new holes for pipe and wire.You will thank yourself down the road and a new stud aint that expensive.The moisture may have wicked up so far on the stud that you would need to drill new holes anyway so do it now.I could see sistering for a little rot in something like a floor joist but a bathroom wall stud ...come on man (as they say on gameday )
