Unusual Project: no central air in my workshop and portable a/c could not keep up with 95+ Texas heat. Window a/c was cheap solution but HOA rules would not allow it to hang out of window.
Solution was to build into the room. 6-inches of space on sides and top for ventilation, 3-sided screen to keep birds from nesting, and a drain fitting with a hose to control condensation. Box built with 3/4-inch ply and lag bolted into window frame. Works great – easily cools room to 70- degrees and is much quieter than the roll around portable at a cost of only $250!
