comment Can porcelain tiles be installed over ceramic tiles?
@DMoore "Although I would never do this myself". I don't agree with it either, but sometimes people don't care about the right way to do things. I'll also agree that in the early days, some of my answers were not so good. Will delete next time in at a computer.

comment Can you have a 90 degree elbow going upward on drain line?
@JPhi1618 Traps can be in the wall (think about a second floor tub/shower). However, according to code, traps have to be self cleaning, which this contraption would not be.

The size of the closet doesn't matter, it's more about getting fresh air into the space

comment Tankless water heater requirements
Looks like most direct vent water heaters can handle up to 41' of equivalent vent length, though they say runs longer than 21' will reduce efficiency. Equivalent length means you measure the straight sections, then add 6' for each 90 turn (two 45 = 90).

comment Tankless water heater requirements
I'm not sure what the maximum length the vent can be. You'd have to check the manufacturer's documentation.

comment Tankless water heater requirements
You should be able to combine the vents, but the pipe must be sized properly to handle both. You'll probably want to have the chimney inspected, to make sure it's up to snuff.

comment Tankless water heater requirements
You could get a direct vent unit, which would allow you to vent directly outside. Then you can avoid connecting to the chimney at all.

I was going to mention this, but didn't see anything about a condensate drain in the installation instructions. Though this is definitely something to check, if the unit does have a condensate drain.
