Round hole, square fan…


So this is where it started, there had been a round exhaust fan, but it needed to be replaced as it wasn’t very efficient.


Randy set out to find a replacement that he liked and it turned out he picked a square one.  So the problem was how to install the square into the round space. 


Randy started off off by cutting out the sheetrock and cutting the opening of the wood ceiling to make it square.  I will confess to avoiding taking part in this part of the project, as there was much debating (with himself) about how best to work this through.  He installed the brackets to hold the box, then the box. 


He cut a piece of green board to fill the hole with and now that will need to be taped, spackled and primed!


Here’s a visual of what it will look like when it’s done.  It’s got a night light and humidity auto on switch as well.  I’m glad this part is done, I don’t think Randy enjoyed this part very much.
