Basement bathroom exhaust fan install
I'm a long time lurker here who has finally had to register to ask question I haven't been able to find an answer to.
I am in the process of gutting my basement in order to rebuild with better materials, methods and not to mention craftsmanship. I will be rebuilding the bathroom from scratch in the existing location. This bathroom does not have an exhaust fan (window only). I will be installing a new Panasonic fan, but have a question about the exhaust ducting.
The easiest way to run the exhaust duct is straight out from the shower to the side wall of the house. I could easily fire up my big Hilti combihammer with a 4" core bit to go through the brick, but this would leave the exhaust outlet approximately 12" above the ground outside. Is this acceptable?
The things I have found while dismantling this basement have caused me much head shaking, to say the least.
