This is my first time on this so bare with me if I'm not asking in the correct place.
I am fairly handy around the house but by no means an expert especially with plumbing
I am moving a dryer vent b/c I am finishing my basement. I need to move the dryer vent. I think my best location is about 10 feet away and I need to cut through the sill plate and run the vent it outside. My thoughts were this:
Drill through ( with a long 1" bit drill bit because that's all I have) the sill plate from the basement
Go outside and locate the hole I drilled
Draw a circular template of the diameter of the vent pipe (or that pipe that attaches to the exterior part of the vent
Cut the vinyl siding with a cutting tool
From the hole I drilled attempt to cut the diameter of the vent pipe with a sawz All or reciprocating saw (or should I use a hole saw???)
