    Does this work? Are there any code issues about which I should be concerned? The city will be inspecting the completed work.

    (1) Two 60's to move the pipe over to the next stud bay from below.
    (2) Move the vent tee into the next stud bay.
    (3) Tee off the new vertical pipe to run a new drain. I'm not sure if the pipe from the tee to the 90 for the drain has to be a certain minimum length by code. I don't think so.
    (4) The two electrical lines will be moved. Their loads are in this same wall, so it SHOULD be a trivial move.

    I asked the city about using a stud shoe if I were to tee off to the right on the existing pipe, since I'll be violating code if I notch the stud to accommodate the fitting. They were ok with it.

    Since I plumb in Seattle, I'm not surprised.

    My great grandfather lived in Seattle after he returned from the Alaska Gold Rush. The home he built is still on lower Queen Anne, somewhat close to the Seattle Center.

    I'm actually in Federal Way, but yeah, same story. When I asked about stud shoes at Home Depot and McLendon's, everyone said they'd never heard of them; one of the HD associates found it online, but they don't stock them. I found one at Lowe's, but it's spec'd up to 2" OD pipe. Do you know of a local supply house that might carry them? It seems like it shouldn't be this hard to find one that's the appropriate size. Here are the closest I could find to what I need:

    Your house is NOT going to fall down if you drill your hole closer to the front of the stud, (or even notch it), especially since it looks like it is a 2x6 stud.

    I agree, but the city mandated that I install a stud shoe.

    Cool! It's nice to hear that it's been inspected and passed off.
