    Not a criticism, just a point for future reference. IMO, if the wall is out of plumb, one would normally space consistently from the wall. It looks straighter! Known as "following the contours"

    Thanks guys. The wife is pleased, and I am to be suitably rewarded. ;)

    Not sure about hiding the pipes. I used Talon clips, which allow for a cover to be fitted, but the wife doesn't like them. I might look to box in or paint, but the "boss" needs to make that decision.
