That's a 1" CPVC line and he drilled them in two separate places all the way across the entire building including the two girder trusses in the middle.


They will probably be ok I guess, but I was always told never ever ever ever drill a truss. Ever. Never.




Intresting picture of the truss looks like it supports a FAU catwalk above . Those trusses are all Engineered I dought that sprink line will hurt a thing but I most certainly NEVER touch a truss, glulam, or Engineered beams with out checking the paperwork . once Im sure of the spec. Ill have no fear and go for it . Each company and product withen the company has its own rules. The only safe rule of thumb is dont touch it

I always followed the rule, 'when in doubt, cut it out'!

I gues 60 years or more ago there were no rules from the looks of the beams plumbers cut through to put pipes in, lead , cast and galvanized. how many old bathrooms you gut and see nothing left to floor joists that were hacked almost all the way through and then filled up with concrete or deafening if spelled right( light weight concrete they used back then)and then you wondered why the floor had a slant to it..

I've been doing some work on my downstairs and discovered that the toilet line for the upstairs bathroom came up the wall out of wall into a soffit, 4" santee going back the direction it came from and this whole contraption took out 90% of the joist. They left a little sliver on the top for me. To top it all off, there's a cast iron tub sitting on top of that mess. I was able to reconfigure all of it with 3" abs no holes through joists, and sister a new 2x10 with glue and nails.

Not sure If I posted this before or not. Drain for upstairs lavatory & bathtub.

Kinda surprised that the wall hadn't sagged and broken the window.

That is insane. Years back when i was working with the tools i had a green apprentice that hacked up some metal studs in a restroom pretty bad. When the inspector showed up and i met him at the site he made us repair the hacked up studs. Instead of using the stud punch several times to make the hole, he would punch one hole and tin snip the crap out of the stud.

What's more is those 3 studs (a king and 2 jack studs/ trimmers) were transferring the weight of the upstairs wall onto a void in the concrete where there is an area vent. That's the exact reason they put that drain there. I ended up having a lot of dry rot in that wall due to some really f*@cked up awning that someone built on the weather side of the house, so when I rebuilt it, I put an extra 12" long header and put the supports where the concrete is and moved the drain beyond that. I think i've only had about 3 major issues with this house.

Septic tank outlet was orangeburg and somehow it was shaped nearly like a p-trap. So I had to dig that up and replace that section and put in a new D-box.

the leaky awning which led to a few other minor things

and a sag in the floor where the upstairs exterior wall is carried by a double floor joist in my kitchen ceiling. No support under those double joists on either end, and what's worse under the house where that support should transfer down to the earth, no support within about 6 feet of it. Needless to say the beam was sagging.

Maybe these guys needed some pieces because they ran out of full length 2x4’s
