Frame Around Vertical Drain Pipe

Hi guys. Need your help please. I am framing my basement and have come to my first vertical drain. I know I will have to put a soffit/chase around it but have a question.
How close should I get to the pipe with my bottom plate? See pics.
Thanks for help.

I don't think there's a fixed number for what you're asking. I usually leave at least 1/4" gap. I've also made a practice of "hiding" vertical pipes by building large, floor-to-ceiling shadow boxes adjacent to them. Framed with 2 or 3 interior shelf openings, with glass shelves and lighted, they make great places for displaying all of the wife's precious treasures.

P.S. You should learn how to rotate your photos before submitting them. It would prevent me from getting a sore neck when looking at them.
