bathroom ventalation


I am finishing a bathroom in my basement, but have no way to vent it outside. Are there any solutions to this problem?

You can use an in-line vent if it meets code in your area, but you're still going to have to vent it to the attic I believe.

NO vent is to be vented inside, including into an attic. That will only add all of the moisture there being exhausted from the bathroom for instance.
All vents should be vented through a wall or out the roof.
Good luck!

I was talking about a plumbing vent, not an exhaust fan vent. The in-line vent I was referring to is actually called an AAV (air-admittance valve).

It's already vented for the plumbing. I was wondering about the exhaust fan. Sorry, I should have specified. The exterior wall it is next to is stone and there is duct work surrounding the other three directions.

You can drill through stone. As long as this isn't a castle with 9 foot walls.
