Pipes on exterior wall?

March 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are the process of building a house and we have a large walk in shower. We want two shower heads and one would go on the exterior wall. I do live in CT so it gets very cold here in the Winter. I am concerned about the pipes freezing, the plumber mentioned using the spray insulation but I have been reading over time you could still get cold pockets. Does anyone have any experience with having a shower head on an exterior wall? Thanks.

Something that has worked here in Maine is to build a second wall so that the plumbing is actually inside the building envelope.

eagledzines has a good solution. We used that on this Arts and Crafts kitchen to make the wall mount faucet and pot filler work in Indiana winters.
