In response to Re: Replacement plumbing routed outside of house?
You can do this, but in my opinion it always looks tacky, even when well-done. I see this sort of plumbing even here in the SF Bay Area, mostly in the form of drainpipe routed to the outside walls of a house. You even see this outside drainpipe in places with freezing temperatures, and apparently it often works because the slope prevents freezing (but not always).

The fact is that skilled tradesmen (plumber and tilesetter/plasterer) can usually find a way to run the pipe in the plumbing wall with minimal damage and make the job look good. Skilled work and expensive, but ultimately the best way to go, in my opinion.
