Customer Question

Our current kitchen is too small. It is adjacent to the family room which was originally the garage and is built on a concrete slab where there is no plumbing. Someone suggested that we could run pipes from the existing kitchen to the new space inside the wall. The wall would be wider than usual. Is this feasible? What would the pitfalls be?

Yes it's feasible if you don't run water pipes in an outside wall assuming you're in a part of the country with cold winters. The other issue would be the height of the drain where it would terminate in the new area. Since it has to be sloped/pitched (at 1/4" per foot)it could wind up being too high.
