we have a 6 year old log cabin with ~ 8.5" diameter logs. the dryer is 1' from the wall and I would like to cut a 4" hole straight through. current run has 6 90 deg turns and another 25 feet of run. is it ok to go straight through the log wall? I have googled and checked and don't see information on this. Thanks, Tim


Yes it would be fine to go straight through. Be sure to caulk or chink around opening. If it is a gas dryer you will have to use a heat resistant caulk.
