My garage hasn't a vent opening, for our dryer...My wife has to open the window, and hang the vent hose outside. The house has a stone type siding that's not very thick...Whats the best way to drill a 4" round hole for a permanent vent?

Position the dryer against the wall, and mark the center of where the interior wall hole will be, avoiding any wall studs, of course. Cut the hole in the interior wall. Use a 1/2" masonry bit and drill a hole from the inside in the center through the stone facade from the inside. Draw a 4" circle around this centered hole on the outside stone, and drill a series of holes inside the circle circumference. Chip out in between with hammer and chisel. Caulk behind the exterior vent flange to waterproof it and secure it to the stone facade. Clamp on the vent hose from the inside. Wallah!
