Glass blockade?

i just had my final inspection. Remodel kitchen and bath, add new bath. Well, not enough ventilation in the old bath. I didnt install a fan becuase i didnt want to cut the stucco (or the lathe and plaster for that matter). I did however put a small vent window in the glass block i installed, but it just wasnt big enough for the inspector. So... what to do? I am thinking i could remove the old window (takes up the space of 2 glass blocks) and remove 2 more blocks, then install a 2x2 window which i think would meet code. question is would it be easier (and safer) to cut a hole in the wall for a fan?
Thanx
be happy

thanx for the fast reply. second story bath, no sofit access, steep roof pitch. I know a fan would move more but that is not what i am concerned about, the bath has been fine with no ventalation for 90 years.

Old home ventilation

Remember that 90 years ago your home probably had quit a bit of air leakage. In the day fuel was cheap.

IF you or the previous owners have made envelope improvements to the structure over the years, moisture levels become a more critical issue. Cooking,bathing,laundry, and human presence are the biggest contributers. This is why there is codes for proper ventilation.

i suppose a fan is my only choice then. I am not sure how i am going to pull that off. but i suppose i will have to get creative.
