Bvplumbing
We have striped out the walls, ceiling and floor from our kitchen. Recently we had a plumber redo our in the wall plumbing. Our concern at this point of the project it that the installed plumbing in the wall sticks out about 1/2 inch from the wall studs.

Not knowing if this is common or if the plumber messed up with this installation I dont know what to do now. He used 2 . 4's inside the wall to attach the pvc and copper water pipes to. If it had been a 1 x 4 all would be fine....chuck

Good luck Chuck, sounds like your going to need it.

Is it possible the "plumber" was concerned about piping freezing being near and outside wall and he found it impossible to get insulation in your neck of the woods thus he gave more room for air flow to have a barrier for the piping?

Since the original post I contacted the plumber and he said the vent pipe can be pulled in closer in the wall and that the wall material can bend over the plumbing. I did not like this answer so I am going to fir out the walls around the plumbing and the length of the counter. Then I will add some type of transition piece.

Thanks for your reply....chuck
