They are finally here… Fans for the bathrooms! Who is excited?!

When I “revealed” my little stage 1 bathroom reno in September, I mentioned that next steps to get the bathroom functional and keep it mold-free would be to install a bathroom fan. So Steve has been busting his bum for the past few weeks to get these up and running.

Master Bath - Bathroom Fan

We choose a Broan 2.5-Sone 80 CFM White Bath Fan from Lowes for $88. Our bathroom is tiny, so we didn’t technically need anything over 50 CFM, but we decided we liked more power. *Mwahahaha*

Steve decided that since he was going to be up in the attic rolling around in the insulation and cutting holes in the side of the house, he might as well kill to birds with one stone. Thus, we decided to install a fan in our guest bathroom as well.

Guest Bath - Bathroom Fan

Oh hey… welcome to our guest bath! I don’t think I’ve posted anything on this… and with good reason. It’s fugly. Seriously.

We aren’t going to need to do any ceiling repair in the guest bath but there is a little spackle work that needs to be done in the master. That’s right… Steve is awesome.

So part one of this adventure is done. The fans are attached to the house and wired. Next step is to run the exhaust vents. It’s not glamorous work, but it needs to be done. We are so lucky that Steve is able/willing to do these types of projects instead of subbing them out. I heart saving $$.

Anyone else installed any bathroom fans? Any advise on how to run the exhaust pipes?
