Hey robgray1,


Would you be able to post some pictures?


Section of the pipe that is up against the wall can be boxed out ...or what the call soffit.

Typically 2x3s or 2x2  are used for such.... one nailed to the wall…right below the pipe on the ceiling right in front of the pipe, one piece @ 90 degrees and small pieces connecting these three .Something like this;



For the section of the pipe that is coming out 12 inches from the wall and 12 from the ceiling you are better of framing it so it looks like a beam of some sort...


Why did they drop it that much …?
