Bath exhaust through outside wall


Thanks for all the advice! I love this forum because I get so many opinions, it helps make an informed decision.

I am thinking about going with this fan:
http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-FV-1...er+low+profile

It is a small bathroom, so the size should be adequate. I like the idea of using a siding block and a good vent as suggested. Should be a fairly easy install. I will have to run the wiring and switch, but that's no trouble. I do wish I could get a fan directly over the shower, but not possible in this room. The wall unit will have to do.

This all reminded me of a funny story years ago when I used to do residential house wiring that I would like to share.
I contracted to wire a new custom home and the customer was to purchase all the fixtures. Most of the fixtures were very nice expensive ones but they went cheap for the bath fan in the down stairs bathroom. I had finished hooking up everything and went home when I got a frantic call that the bath fan sounded like a Harley Davidson. At the time the only fan that I knew of that was quiet was a NuTone. They were happy with it even though it cost them.

I would like to get one of these that was mentioned in an earlier post:
http://www.menards.com/main/heating-...024-c-9502.htm

It looks like they wont ship this item, I would have to pick it up at the store.... It's in Ohio and I am in Maine... Not exactly down the road. I can't seem to find anything like it anywhere else.

Joists probably run front to back, remember to stay 3' from any operable window with the termination hood, per most codes. Gary

Well, that might be a problem.., 3 feet would probably bring it into the next room. Theres maybe 2 ft of wall on either side of the bathroom window.

2x6 walls on same side of both baths, stacked? For a 4" pipe... how good are you at drywall, or build a chase in the upper bath- corner with shelves or... ? Check with local AHJ, mat let it go.
