I don't think there's much choice but...


Hi, I'm sure you get many questions, hoping for anyone's crafty opinion. I'm a single mom, I have some money not millions, anyway I bought a house that has an add on for a living room the problem is ( I wish I could upload pics not good at explaining) when they did the add on the pvc pipes I'm assuming from kitchen are exposed through the bottom wall, so much so that you can't even put baseboard there. I have hid it with furniture which limits my arrangement to one so its pretty boring and basic and does not feel like home at all it also extends down the wall 3-4 foot would be my guess, and it starts just right under a ledge/ bar type thing they built to extend an original window that use to be there so bookshelf is out of question. Any ideas would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time.

Want to take the time and materials to fix this right once and for all?
That should have been a 2 X 6 wall, not 2 X 4's.
I think there also should have been a clean out where that elbow is.
Is this a slab foundation or is there access below?

Not just a cleanout but they have most likely created an S trap(you would need a vent off the top of that elbow) which are illegal setups in all jurisdictions these days and for good reason. Also that rubber fitting fondly refered to as a furnco is not good and illegal in some places its been a while since i did plumbing but if i recall a mechanical fitting must be accessible.(meaning you would not be able to conceal it in a wall with out a removable access panel) and in places that use the UPC un-shielded coupling cannot be used above ground.

p.s. Have not read plumbing code for a very long time and am quite fuzzy on the subject.
