Why risk it?
There must be safe ways to do it. It must be standard practice for a location that doesn’t have an outside wall. [quote=“smcgathyfay, post:37, topic:8570”]
If you look at my setup, anything that doesnt make it to the roof and out, falls back into the part that I can open and empty…
Additionally, I can’t just cut a hole in the side of my house. It’s brick, so I imagine having a contractor do that work would be very expensive and would also lower the value of my home since no one wants a dryer vent in their bedroom.
Obviously, I don’t want to burn my house down, which is why I asked for advice in the first place. Your warnings are warranted, but seem a bit alarmist. In fact, it reminds me of when I posted an instructable on liquor bottles I turned into citronella lanterns and mounted them to my back patio. Some people said I’d burn my house down, and others realized that the flame couldn’t get remotely hot enough to set fire to a 4x4. It seems scary, but isn’t really a risk at all. Thank you for your concern and suggestions. I will certainly take them into consideration.
