    It appears to be no voids in the mortar around the exhaust vent from an outside view. Inside I
    can't see anymore since it is stuffed with steel wool and caulked.Yes, the duct may not have
    been the sou...

    I haven't updated in a while but I thought I'd mention that I am going to go with 2x4 and 2x6

    In terms of rigid duct, is PVC as good as metal?
