I am in the process of doing a kitchen renovation, and I would like to re-locate my sink probably about 15-30 inches over. Currently the sink pipes are in the original plaster/cement and contractors are telling me it would cost significant amount of money for them to jack up the cement move the pipes and patch it all up.
My question is, why can't they short the pipe and put an extension pipe across to the area that I would like the sink to be moved to for hookup. I would cut a hole on the side of my base cabinet to allow the pipe to run through that. I am told by a contractor that is against code (but I want to make sure, as he might just say it to make more money off of me).
