I'm sorry to hear it didn't work out for you. All situations are different.

true, I dont know your experience putting together fittings or laying out a system..do you have right angle drill and bits to drill beams and then to set the fittings with proper angles and swings and what combo of fittings to get certain hookups done?..

They're not.
The lav on the 2nd floor RHS shows an S trap on your drawing.

This is the part that most DIY's have a hard time with.
I had a plumber friend to ask questions about which fittings to use. I then looked up the info for the "why" they were used as he said, to thoroughly understand it.

San T and vent straight up?

Your correct pugsy I missed that You stack the tees a 3 by 2 to the washer and a 1.5 san teee to the lav at stub out height. No turning up for the lav.

I'm the same way if I was the plumber then I would install the pipe.

Ghost,

Sorry that the overall diagram isn't showing the proper fittings. I was only showing the detail of the pipe sizes. Not the exact locations and type of fittings.
