I think we could either vent out the wall or the roof–would either work and should this be vented all the way to the outside?
The other thing is that the old plumbing vent stack will now vent into an attic space. There will be a vent in the attic directly above the old stack, but the stack ends about a foot from the new vent. I feel I should also insist that the stack vent all the way out the roof too.
I would be very pleased to hear from anyone with opinions on my venting issues.
