The plumber came back (on a quieter day) and got started on the rough-in. For supply lines we're using crosslinked polyethylene, or PEX, which is what we have in the rest of the house already. It's color-coded for hot and cold. This is the valve for the corner shower. It will eventually get a sliding bar shower head since the current child-size occupants will rapidly become adult-size.

Down below I requested that any pipe that couldn't be tucked between joists should hug the walls as tightly as possible. The HVAC guys have the same instructions. When this room is finished off I'll be able to just box in that stuff around the perimeter of the ceiling and make it look fairly presentable.
