Potentially you could be flagged for a violation if your tie in is not 42 inches above the garage floor.
Will run the vent vertically up the stud bay and not go horizontal until in the joist area. Can't get above the garage floor before going horizontal. That would be a bad day if an inspector dinged you for that.

Wasn't fun at all. Rented an electric dry-use Makita 14" concrete saw from HD. The saw has its own attachment for shop vac hook up for dust collection. Well the dust collection worked like ****. I should of went to United Rental and got their Husqvarna wet electric saw.

Anyway it got done.

Got the rough in done. We also roughed in for a future laundry sink on the opposite side of the wall with the lav as seen in pictures 3 & 4.

And yes we got a little sloppy with the primer

Not bad for a beginner. Please don't forget your nail plates and 4 by 6 plates at bottom and top of wall where ever pipe is within 1.5 inch of stud surface. This includes the water. You will also need a test for your inspector. So I hope you did not cover without inspection.

Yeah will do the nail plates when we finish the framing. Only need a few all plumbing is in 2x6 walls.

Thanks for your comments throughout Ghost

I am had a question about the 2/6 walls you built. I was going to use 1.5 inch drains for my lav/sink and was just planning 2x4 walls. I would only have 2 inch venting rising straight up from my shower tie in. So no 2 inch would be going through any virtical studs.

Am I ok just using 2x4 walls? (non structural). ..as long as I don't have any holes for 2 inch drains going through them?

Cave eagle its absolutely fine to run1.5 inch pipe through 2 by 4 walls. Use a 2 9/16 drill bit. The wall only hangs dry wall and not a bearing wall. I was a new work plumber most of my life prior to the plumbing inspector job I now hold.

OK, thanks for the double validation. I actually built a basement bathroom in Dutches County (Wappingers Falls), back in '02, and I swear the Town of Poughkeepsie made me build a whole wall in 2x6 because I ran a 1.5 inch sink drain through it. ..That was a fiasco on several levels. That was a while ago, but I can promise you, that 2x6 wall was royal PITA, and made the room flow awkwardly, so am pretty sure I could not find a way around it at the time.

...Hope you were not a ToP Inspector in '02..

Looks like it should work. I'd say you got off lucky only having to break up the amount of floor that you did. When you filled your trench in did you just use the dirt you took out?

Yes due to the way I layed it out the concrete demo was at a minimum. Plus tying in the lav above grade helped. I used sand to fill in the trench to half way cover the pipe then used some of the dirt that was removed then gravel.
