in my townhouse that we would like to close off and make a bedroom. If
we do close off the room, the only register would be located outside

hardware store. The hard part seems to be installing the register boot
in the ceiling. I have a 12'' X 4'' register cover and the same size
hole in my ceiling. I cannot seem to find a register boot that covers
this nicely at the local hardware store. So, any ideas on how to
