    I would worry about the three 2x6 sistered together that you removed on the right hand side I know it seems weird though that there is obviously a load-bearing wall a foot away.

    I am by no means a structural engineer so I'm sure someone else will be able to give a better opinion

    I was at first but I have been told it's not and it's nothing to worry about. I am having a company do the work on the wall and stand. The far ends are (left and right) and they won't be moved in anyway.

    Some serious progress has been made but still a ways to go.

    Will the tank be right at the edge of the wall?

    Consider a slight recess like all the windows in your home. It's a much better look than just trimming directly to the tank. It doesn't need to be much, even an inch looks decent. This is my opinion of course.

    Good information to know. I appreciate that It should have a very small recess. I will find out today as the tank is going into to place. I will upload some pictures :).

    I'm having some electrical plugs moved to a different wall by choice. I have an electrician coming by today to look at that. Currently, I'm in a stall because of this we still have some more work to do on this build. Cabinet guy is next to come. I want the cabinets to be over the entire tank from one end to the other and for the cabinets to match the same ones in the kitchen. I have an order in for an acrylic drip tray to match the sump :).
