Is there any hope of moving these pipes up through the floor joists?

Would sisters against the joists be necessary if a hole is drilled through the joists?

Thanks!

I guess I can figure out whether water runs through this pipe by running hot water through it for a few minutes.

My idea is to remove the blacked out area of the photo as it is not a load bearing surface. That will give me room to get my hand back behind the floor joist to make the glue-ups and connections. The rest of the drain will go through the joists as suggested.

The finished product. Well worth the $245, and no leaks!

I have removed all the cabinets from the kitchen and had to make some pretty serious cuts to get the sink base out.

I have the dry wall up and painted. All the hanging cupboards are in place.

I have the corner base cabinet in place and am ready to place the sink base. However, I don't want to make as drastic a cut as I did to get the old one out.

So here is my next plumbing question. I would like to remove two of the collars on the piece of drain pipe going into the wall so that only one sticks out of the wall. This will make cutting the sink base a much easier job.

Is there a way of doing this so the pipe is not destroyed? I would like to remove the collar where the red arrow points.

The people who are installing our counter tops are also supplying the plumber to put in the sink, disposal, and hook up drain pipes and water supply lines.
