Building code


Is there anything in the Canadain Building Code regarding the location of a bathroom exhaust vent. It is for my basement spare bathroom that I am building. I want to vent it out through the side wall of the house but to one side within 7 feet is the furnace direct exhaust vent. The other option is to locate it under the front porch area, which obviously, moisture and fumes could be trapped.

Why don't you just call the building department and ask them?

I gave your answer. You're asking a question that can be simply answered with one phone call. How come you can't just make that one simple phone call to the building department and get your answer?

As building codes differ by location, you need to make sure your local code is being satisfied, not what might work in another location.

You could hardly get a clearer and more directly relevant answer to a question like this one than to pick up the phone and ask your LOCAL Building Department.

It would actually be fairly foolish to proceed with construction based solely upon answers read on a DIY forum.

You just didn't like the answer. Try another forum. Google it. Decide on your own. Keep looking until you find an answer you like.

Has to vent out the South side of the building, when the sun sets in the East.

Must be at least 1" of the ground, when the ground is completely frozen.

He didn't like the answer because he's building an illegal bathroom in a basement and has no intention of filing for permits and inspections. Just like many others who come here do.
