    This is new construction right? What about asking the plumber on the job.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    It looks that way, but no. It's a house I bought that had a lot of problems that were covered up. It's turned into a total rehab that is in the process of bankrupting me. The bids I've gotten all range from $4k and up to do the plumbing, I can't afford it.

    Default Dwv

    You are asking us to design a complete DWV system for a two story house without even seeing the house? Sometimes conditions are such that even being there requires that we be creative. There is no way we could even begin to do it and even if we could there is also no way we could be certain that your finished product would look like what we designed. I had a friend who tried to do what you are for a simple bathroom in an addition. He got the proper drawing from the city building department, but when I went to make his connection to the existing plumbing it was so incorrect that I had to throw the whole thing away and start from scratch. But to HIS eyes, he had followed the drawing perfectly. I told him the inspector would have had to wait until he stopped laughing before he could write the red tag rejection. One thing I can tell you if your picture is correct, that right now you do NOT have anywhere to connect the upper bathroom into the piping, because ITS connection would have had to come out of the concrete separately from what you have for the basement.

    Venting must be on the same floor,
    You can't drop waste down the vent of a lower floor fixture.
