I know this has nothing to do with energy performance, but at some point we all have to be able to identify things that aren't right! This was in my 100year old house in Toronto, it's one of the dirtiest pics I have!

"Hey, rather than cut notches for the second pipe let's just run below the joists!!"  

I never could understand why the carpenters insist on putting those wood things in everybody's way, they're just a pain.

!!!!

When I was building/remodeling full time I came to the conclusion that to get a plumbers license you should be required to surrender your sawzalls.

I now rest my case.

Might not be as bad as you think - if the load needs a 2X10 out in the middle of the span, a 2X5 at the end might be within spec.  That is assuming the plumber actually thought about it.

The 2x10 turning into a 2x5 reminds me of a client that had a toilet getting loose every few months. Also problems with the tile floor around the toilet cracking. Wonder why?

I particularly think the use of caps and couplings is outstanding.
