Ok, thanks all for the help, This is how I found the house, I wasn't planning on keeping it this way.lol. I was looking at how to fix it right, the pvc is from the gas furnace and the 3" metal vent is from the GE 50 gallon gas water heater.

Sorry if I worded it wrong I mainly put the pipe I had left over to show you guys where it was placed currently in the house and what I needed to do/order in order to vent it properly and if it was possible to have something flush mounted to the wall, I did a search and mentioned being 5 ft from windows, however I was planning on raising the vent pipe, I wasn't sure how to work around the electrical box properly so it looked the best it can. This post, although I was asking a different question at first was mainly a starting point for my research. I greatly aprreciate the input, and by no means meant not to contact a professional on helping me with some of the work, I was looking into your guys opinion on how you would go about venting this properly.

They also make oval B vent. So if you have a wall cavity near by, you could run it up a wall and out your roof.

You have to take it out the roof. So you either use B vent and build a fake chminey or better yet buy a power vent Hot water tank. That can vent out the side of the house.

Oval b vent can only be used with a recessed wall furnace. You may be able to use it with other appliances, but they need to be approved to be vented with oval b vent.
