remodeling laundry


Is it ok to put water lines in the outside wall of my house or will that be a freezing hazard?

You wouldn't be the first that did it, but yes it might freeze. Is there access from below? If so you could run them under their from farther into the house and bring them up behind the washer, but not inside the wall.

Need more details...or pictures

If we knew your location some one could answer that.

The answer to that is DON"T DO IT if you live in a cold area---

It's simple enought to build another wall in front of the other one, that way the lines come throught the floor but all the plumbing is hidden.
Often times I'll build the wall so it comes out above the washer and dryer and add a shelve on top of that to set the laundry soap on.
