ductless venting

i have a 200 year old stone house. there is no vent in the bathroom.

can i use a ductless vent ? if so what kind ? the walls are over 2 feet of stone. there is no easy way to put a vent in this bathroom
the bathroom is on the 2nd floor the third floor is a loft bedroom so i can't go up. does anyone have any ideas?

ductless venting

Code here requires all fans to be vented to the outside. Otherwise you will have humidity problems. Sometimes it is just no fun to go through those walls.

ductless venting

Unless you want to cut out wall and ceilings so you can get it to the roof. You will have to core a hole thru the wall. It'll be cheaper, easier and get the job done faster. Coring holes can be messy though and some hole coring company won't clean up or remove cut's without extra charge

Get some bids from a few pro's.
