So I am remodeling my bathroom and I was wondering where the best spot to place the exhaust fan vent would be. The bathroom is on the first floor and going through the roof, while difficult, is an option. This route, however, is going to be at least 15' straight up. Easiest placement would be to put a hole in the side of the house and get the appropriate vent cap for the outside.

What do you guys think?

Also, there is a window on the exterior wall of this bathroom. I'm sure as with any vent you want to keep this as far away from the window as possible, right?
