I know our rental was only 1/2" from the street.  nonetheless, the fixture 
requires 1" in, so I thought I'd go overkill now so I don't have to later (I 
suspect the plans for the master bath include something like the bathroom I'm 
doing now, only bigger/more).  

I basically need to figure out how to get the pressure up after the well tank, 
and what material I should use for the pipes.  they're going through the attic 
no matter what, since I'm not going to crack up the slab.
