What State do you live in?

The U.S. Energy Code requires exhaust ventilation for laundry rooms, Your State may or not. The location would also tell us if you need a vapor barrier on the walls or not. One is required under the bricks/slab, as I said earlier.

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

GBR

I live in NC......

I was told by an inspector on another thread that the ventilation is not required because there is no attic space above the room???



There is no poured concrete etc under the block....maybe a gravel bed but I don't think anything else. So i assume no vapor barrier.... So it seems like you are saying look no more because the foundation is not acceptable???

Also there is not access to under this floor the wall shared by this room and the kitchen is where the crawl space ends...
