When I started to look into converting small free standing garage into my now shop I new right off I would need to get the dist collector and air compressor out of the room. Not really having a background in shop building. Fast forward I get the shop done, install the heat and dust collector. I later insulate the building and everything looking good.
Well I forgot to think about all the heat and now AC that’s getting sucked out of the shop. So off to the internet I go. Looking at different ideas I decided I’d built a return in wall on the inside of the shop that will lead into a box with baffles and some sound insulation. I will also be adding some insulation in the lean-to now that I’ll be heating and ACing it.
So far I’ve cut the whole in the wall for a 10X10 vent and built and cut out the parts for the box that will be 20X25.

More TK this weekend.
