for proof of concept?? we have basements here, and a building that i work at had a racoon break in recently , so the dryer vents need to be arranged in a strange fashion.this pic was taken while the dryer was on.

this is the most unconventional solution being used,i simply duplicated what i thought the original design was, when i got there all the 20 yr old parts were all over, so i simply inferred what the design had been.I was finished yesterday, but went back to make sure the vent opened today, i knew it would but wanted to see it for myself . weird, i know.

so the wire mesh would be good , but might stop too much lint.

We were 18, i think my buddy is better now (not much) Our friend who went to school for welding does amazing work, it looks like a robot made the weld.

I don't think that type of flex pipe is the right stuff to use. I believe it's only good for bathroom venting. You can use the all metal flex pipe with out melting or fire problems but... any flex pipe slows down exhaust too much and the dryer won't be efficient and drying times may double or it may not dry at all.
