I've been thinking something similar - increased build time under walls. Gives an idea of the extra work involved without having to do each step yourself.

increased time could work... but it could also make the floor/wall collapse and kill all occupants inside?

i think the game mechanic is fine as it is, its realistic, you need to plan electricity, and water and sewerage before you build a house....

i would hope.

I don't mind it, you can simply get around it by either continuing building a large pipe and just build a small pipe under the wall (connecting the two larger pipes).
Or destroy the wall, build a large pipe, then rebuild the wall.
I haven't really seen this as an issue.

And that, for me, really is the end of the discussion.

I think it would be better if you couldn't build any pipes after the building is completed, force people to plan ahead with them.

-1 to keeping the current pipe implementation - it adds a pain point that at worst costs you a minimal amount of extra cash. As for the planning ahead argument - if you go that route, then you should also not allow large pipes through doors, or any existing foundation for that matter.

If you were going to go the route of making people plan ahead with pipe laying - you'd need some form of pressure overlay so people could plan ahead without guessing - e.g. show a radius around the large pipe where small pipes would be effective.
