Yeah there needs to be a water source for that sheer!! Call the PB asap so someone can beat the shell guys. I would also go out there and look to see if there is even pipe leading to that one so they will know they need to bring more pipe :(

Glad the PB was able to quickly address your concerns about the bench.

Those two pipes are returns...looks like they are going to build the rear wall with block (why not shoot it?). Your plan only shows two shears, they can add that plumbing after...

Ahhhhhhh how much you want to bet the plumbing guys had the wrong set of plans!!!! You need to get your hands on all of the plans and shred the old ones. This has happened more than once on builds :(
