Dryer vent location
A- vent the dryer straight out from the back of the dryer, bo elbows, no longer than the thickness of the wall assembly under a soffit vent.
B- Drop down into floor system, making at least 4 90° turns, adding the complexity of a booster due to the 20 plus foot run to exit out the gable end of the home.
Neither one will be totally to code since in Wisconsin, you aren’t supposed to vent under soffit vents “A” and you are supposed to be more than 12″ above grade, “B” would be at best 8″ up from the grade.
Currently there is a more torturous path similar to “A” that has the exhaust at the 8″ height from grade under the soffit vent. Basically 2 90°s. So I guess that becomes the “C” option.
