plumbing is a pain in the a@@!

That is my favorite quote of the day...from my favorite professional plumber (aka Dad) when asked why I can't just put a toilet wherever I want...  I am learning a lot about vent pipes (and how do you get them from floor one up through the roof) and how big they should be and what type of pitch ones needs to properly let the good waste flow.

Oh yes and important question #2 - just how many floor joists can you cut through before the structure starts to sag?  I am counting at least seven - but do notice a definite pitch near the upstairs toilet suspiciously near where the pipes run through...

These are NOT from my house.  Gee don't I feel better now...
