The previous owner left a bit of a headache with the dryer venting setup.
This is a gas dryer
The living room is behind the right hand side wall, so that's a no-go as far as drilling
The kitchen is behind the wall behind the door
The current setup is a potential fire hazard with lint getting built up. Too many changing angles, over 30 ft (9 m) of duct. No good.
Things I've ruled out:
- I don't want to have an indoor venting box
- I'd prefer to not drill any more holes, but if I have to I will
- If I have to hire someone, my budget is around US$300-500. If there's a DIY solution that a very novice handyman like myself can do, that would be great!
What are my options here?
