Need help choosing an exhaust fan.


I have lived in my home in New Mexico for 12 years (built in 1960). My bathroom had a window which was almost always open and kept any humidity problems in check. A new room was added which blocked the window....and the bathroom has never had an exhaust fan. The problem is that I don't know what type of exhaust fan to buy because my home has no attic space...nothing. It is just drywall - insulation and 2 X 8's - decking - shingles. (All lights, etc. are wall-mounted.) It seems to me that everything I look at online needs much more room to be installed. I need help!

Broan and Nutone both make quality bath fans that will fit in this space and have through the wall adapters for wall mounting

And you can get roof exhaust caps if your bathroom no longer has an outside wall.
