Default Does anyone else have to scramble pipe

Why do I always get the fun ones?
Everything has to tie in at 42" minimum at the center here in Illinois. It's some spaghetti but it's in the wall. Why me? Why me?
Ps there's a stack vented trap in the attic for two water heater safe pans.

Around here the vent can't run horizontal until a minimum of 6" over flood rim level. The vent you showed pictures of could be tied in lower if you wanted as long as it is vertical, so wye and 45 like in the picture is fine

...has to? I thought 6" above flood level rim was a minimum. As least it is here up north, but has too, no.

I like the fernco bands with the extra clamps. But there should be, according to our code, a transition fitting when cast iron meets PVC. If it were getting inspected here, the transition fittings would have to be installed.
