Running Pipe Up Through Floor...Yes/No?


My Mother in-law wants me to install a pot filler above her range. Currently the studs above the counter are exposed therefore we thought why not...Should be easy right. I pulled out the range and noticed a gas line coming up through the floor and not in the wall...Hmm? I drilled a small pilot hole behind the range to assist me in located the stud plate once I went into the crawl space. Once under the house I found the pilot hole and went to measure over to where the wall would be and discovered a support beam running parallel with the wall. Now I see why the gas line went up through the floor (or maybe that's common).

I explained to my In-laws my findings and suggested we don't drill through the 4"x8" load beam. Now they want me to bring the supply up through the floor like the gas line, elbow into the wall at its base and then proceed up through the wall as intended. I'm using 1/2" CPVC, GatorBite fittings and should be able to connect everything without too much effort. I will be installing a shut off valve in the crawl space that supplies the new pot filler.

Up top...The supply will be protected by the range and never seen. They are retired, the home was built in '94 and it's paid off. I don't see them moving until they are forced, due to health etc.

Thoughts?

Damn the torpedoes and do it.

But drilling a 5/8" hole near the center of a 4x8 beam should not compromise it.

Knocked it out yesterday!
Went up through the floor and it turned out great. The GatorBite fittings are awesome to work with.

What I do in that instance, is drill a hole through that bottom plate on an angle to keep you in the wall but it comes out in front of your beam once you get past the floor level.
