Ducting problem for an HRV

Ok guys, Here's the problem.

I am retrofitting an old house with an HRV and cannot decide the best way to run the stale-air-ehaust.

Here's what I'm planning to do:
HRV located in basement of bungalow, run one 12"x3" wall stack up to the attic, and then, using a 12x3 to 6"round stack boot, spider 6" insulated ducting to the bathroom, kitchen, living room, and main bedroom using ceiling diffusers.

I also want to run a few diffusers to the basment.

I will be running the fresh air return through the existing furnace ducts.

Does this sound acceptable?

Will I achieve an adequate draw to the HRV using this method?

Please help me out with any suggestions or advice,
