Bathroom Vent fan


Not sure where this question belongs
I am adding a 3/4 bath to the upper level of our 1930 story and a half.
I now have to look at installing a vent fan and looking for suggestions as I have very little room to work with.
In the upper level I have about 19 inches of level ceiling before the ceiling begins to slope down, the roof has a ~10:12 pitch.
So the idea is to put a vent fan in the level portion and vent to the outside, i guess I would cut a hole for the fan itself, then I am probably going to have to cut another hole to route and run a vent to the outside. I think it would be pretty difficult to do it all through the hole cut for the vent fan. Although I could cut the sheetrock out completely between the joists and patch as necessary
I am looking for suggestions and even recommendations on technique as well as the best fan for this type of situation.

Re: Bathroom Vent fan


Do you plan to run the vent through the roof or the the soffits or through an exterior wall?

Re: Bathroom Vent fan


The vent will have to go up through the roof. There is no other way
