I'm working on a bathroom exhaust fan project requiring a run of 16'
duct to an outside wall.
I tackled a drywall project before, but am unfamiliar with the
contruction of a dywall chase.
Has anyone had any experience in the construction of such a project.
Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated!
There is a framing material called utility angle. You can get 1
1/2 or 2 " legs, 25 gauge or heavier. I don't know about the box
stores, but any commercial drywall supply house will have this
stuff. This material will allow you to encase the duct work with
no studs, drywall only. Fasten an angle along the top, hang the
vertical rock, install an angle along the bottom of the rock,
repeat on side 2, cap bottom, corner bead the edges, done.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .

thats a really long ductwork run, isnt there a shorter way? With such a
long run little air will move, unless you use a big blower which will
just something to think about, before you close it all in turn fan on
once, and shower. see if it really helps the situation.
