Re: Bathroom Exhaust Fan
It won't be easy, but you can still install the fan within a stud/joist bay, you just build yourself a spacer to make up the difference between the cavity depth and what you need to house the fan body. I did this recently in a home that was formerly a flat roof and had no space for the fan. I simply made a wooden box that filled the gap between the lip of the fan housing and the surface of the ceiling. The box was attached to the framing, the housing was attached to the box. It worked out great and looked good too.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
