Greetings from a warm day here in deepest darkest Africa.

I have a wooden shed roughly 2m x 4m made from horizontal shutter louvres. I need a dedicated space to finish projects and was planning on the following;.

1. Clad the interior with ceiling board to the surface is easy to paint a nice bright colour and to keep out dust.
2. Insert transparent (clear) plastic sheeting under the cladding to further reduce dust.
3. Drill a square hole on the one wall and insert an 8” (200) ceiling exhaust fan to help nasty fumes escape.
4. Place a small desktop fan to help the nasty fumes get to the exhaust fan.
5. Hang a portable ventilator plugged into a timer to suck out the dust in the air after I’ve applied a finish.

Am I on the right track or is all this waaaaaay over-kill?

Oh, I have a 100litre belt drive unit compressor (2.5hp motor, 170l/min (6 cfm), 116psi 8bar max pressure).

Is this sufficient for spraying?

Thanks in advance.
