Mounting bathroom fan in too small attic space
I have a very small interior bathroom with a faulty fan that needs to be replaced. The problem is that the attic above the fan is near the eave and is way to tight for me to get to. I can't even get within 6 feet of it unless I'm on my belly slithering across the joists which makes installation nearly impossible. I should also point out that the "eave" becomes part of an add-on room so I can't get a wall mount fan and vent that way. What options do I have for replacing this fan? Is there a way to install a new fan from inside the bathroom, maybe attaching the vent hose first and pushing it into the attic to where I could reach it? I would have to be able to mount the fan body from inside as well. I've Googled this and haven't seen anything that would work. I'm open to any and all ideas on how to do this without having to hire a very tiny contortionist electrician.
