I think I will need to go through the roof because there is a window in the middle and I wouldn't be able to get very far away from it. Safety aside it would look dumb having it right by the window anyway I think.

Through the roof it's going to have to be pretty close to the peak. I have been waiting for someone I could pay a hundred bucks to just come along but I think I need to just start calling before the snow comes and no one will do it.

I don't think so I need to run it up the wall to the ceiling height to get it out anywhere.

The bathroom is on the street side of the house so if I go out the roof I want to go up to the ceiling then across the ceiling and out the back of the house. It might be easier to go out the roof on the street side of the house but then I would have the pipe smack dab in the middle of the two dormers so I think it would look bad.
