That's because it's a new house. They know man caves and home theaters need head room. Years ago I was doing plumbing in a new house for a guy whose hobby was basketball. Not enough for a regulation half court, but 14 ft ceiling.

The house that manifold is in uses PEX throughout the house.

Possible but harder to do neatly and keep straight, notice the different sized copper tubing with all the valves and drains. Probably made up off site. The only thing I'd change is that drain (I presume it's a drain), at the lower right. I would have put an elbow on the end of the copper tubing then necked down to the valve. But it could be a charge port.

Well, as long as we are being critical, it's going to be a pain to switch out the water heater in the future with it tucked behind the plumbing like that. Maybe there is clearance out of frame to the right, but maybe not.

Absolutely, and for a tenth of the price and in a tenth of the time.

Clandestine-ish?

Reminds me of when I was a kid, there was a building in my neighborhood that housed the US Secret Service - Uniformed Division.
