Rough in not aligning with vanity
 
1 Attachment(s)
Since it is an exterior wall, the water supply lines come up through the floor. I have about 4" of space in the vanity base to work with so I plan putting in some elbows 1" off the tile and simply come up through the bottom of the vanity. I assume this is the best solution.

The drain and vent lines enter the room from the wall and run right into the drawers. Should I rip open the wall, add an elbow behind the sheet rock and come out centered in the sink?

What are my options?
Thanks

I think doing as you are already thinking would be the best solution for the drain and vent but if you already have clearance on the water lines why put on elbows.Come up through the base pue a shut off valve in and connect flexable supply lines to it

As far as the copper lines, the two you see in the picture are fine as they are, the other two are underneath the drawers.

I probably should have ripped open the wall and inspected the drain/vent lines before I posted. Since I am only 2 inches off center to the drain, I am going to cut the abs above and below the "T" , reconnect with slip couplings and enter the bathroom from the wall at an angle.

I think this is the best solution.

Thanks

That will work fine. Their is no such thing as a a PVC slip coupling though, you need to have the play in the pipe.

Thanks Marlin. Couplings have tits inside that prevent you from sliding the pipe all the way through. I thought they made couplings without the tits?

Not for PVC.
