Thanks for the reply. What about the drops for the sinks bathtub and shower? Will they each seperately go feed into the 4" stack?

Thanks,

Pat

Just redo your drawing with the three drops. Make sure you have a way to get them into the basement. Then repost it. Then Ill get the second floor other stuff added.

Easier to describe it to you once I see what you have done. Try to stay out of outside walls.

About 2 9/16 " for 2 " and 1.5 " Pipe,thats the bit you need to get. You will also need a saws all to cut your other holes.

A right angle drill will be necessary. You will need a 1 inch bit for your water lines.

Can a hole big enough be drilled through a 2x8 floor joist for a 3" drain pipe?

Up to your local building official. I'm not involved in any structural details I only inspect plumbing. Have you figured out a way to get the three second floor drops down?

Here is what I have for the (3) 3" drops. I'm going to have to go through floor/ceiling joist to get to the first floor walls. there is no way around it. let me know what you think...

I'm also thinking about flipping the bathtub upstairs so I can get it closer to the washer and that one vanity in the other bathroom.

Thanks,

Pat

I agree with the tub flip.
I would be a pain to reach in and turn on the water with the vanity where it is.
