comment Why would you use copper over CPVC or PEX?
I've been told that PEX requires a star topology, to borrow from networking. If this is true then that would be a potential cost and space disadvantage for PEX.

comment Which water heater types do you recommend?
Another important thing to watch for is that the larger tankless heaters are predominately (all?) gas rather than electric. You should check the BTU rating of the heater vs. your interior gas supply pipes and even against the supply from your gas company to make sure that there's enough gas to support all existing gas appliances and the new heater.
