Started on ventilation

Spent most of the day working on the air sucker. This has been a tricky proposition. The ventilation motor is a big old squirrel cage thing. Its loud and just the simple movement of air adds a lot of noise to the room. I would love to mount the ventilation motor up on the roof, outside of the room but that creates other problems like making a watertight enclosure. It could also create a disturbance to the neighbors.

I’m gonna put the thing indoors. I started on the carpentry and metal work to mate the fan to framing on the ceiling, with the eventual goal of putting a hole in the roof with a roof cap. I’m also going to create a soundproof enclosure. I read that pink insulation has good noise absorption.
