How Hard Would It Be??


I'm getting ready to finish my basement bathroom. The room will be limited in size as most basement baths are. My issue is the ductwork. I have a trunk line running through where the middle of the room would be. I have been throwing around the idea of raising my ductwork to snug it up against the floor joist. I am posting pics to see if any of you guys think it can be done.

I have a similar situation, but then I started to think, wait is there a reason why its an inch or more away from the joists? Is this even allowed? Maybe someone can answer this queston for the both of us

Code calls for one inch clearance from trunk to joist.

There is 3 + inches on the left side of the trunk line. Raising the line if possible would give me 2 more inches. Would a sheet metal shop be able to make a transition piece with a shorter angled run to bring up the trunk line?

Yes. A sheet metal shop can do that easily.

When you say a sheet metal shop, what exactly do you mean? I can't find any reference to sheet metal in my local yellow pages... Would going straight to a HVAC contractor and asking them be the same?
