Getting a delta rise now of about 10 additional degrees, which still isn't at spec.

The hall bath and the master bath demolition is complete! I will begin marking out rough in locations and making sure all components chosen are going to work together.

This corner will need some brainstorming. I can either box it out but will look odd, as before demo, or I can move vent into this wall. Trouble is it goes straight down into soil stack and trying to offset may be too hard with all the ducts and wires in place. The electrical line is the main branch to the upstairs TV room. I can pull it out of the circuit breaker panel (or hire electrician after the HVAC guys apprentice caused the most sparks I have ever seen pulling one out) reroute into wall and place back into panel.

...and no that romex was not attached to anything...

Currently working on the arduous task of planning out the drain vents.
Need to locate new location of toilet in Master Bath and make sure it clears the floor joist. It appears I will be yet again taking a shower in blow in insulation as I create a hole to pass the drain vent into attic. I hope I can cut off this elbow and replace with sanitary tee and alignment doesn't get thrown off.

Master bathroom redesign is going to call for the new toilet to go about 2'-3' away from the main drain line. To connect I will need to tie straight in at an angle that is maybe more than 45 degrees. Will need to select the fittings I am sure a long sweep is in order so there is no impaction, unless this wouldn't happen.

This will also call for removal of one of the supply ducts. Good thing is the one headed to the closet which will become the shower will no longer be side so will swap it over. Thing is I will need to put at least a 6" hole in an IP joist. Specifically an IPI-200 joist. Will need to find info for this.

OK, this gets worse. The drain from the old master sink goes through the floor and creates a notch in the top of the IP joist. It is clearly more than 3 feet away from an outside wall. I don't think the wall below it actually reaches the joist to make it weight bearing. The plan was to move the drain a few inches but this will mean cutting a hole and notching the joist myself, and in the same area!

Will post pics.

So far I found for one type of engineered joist you can cut webbing up to four inches from flange. Will need to verify for my brand.

Correction hole in the top flange of the IP joist. Will be calling manufacturer today.
