Regular readers may remember the saga of my Stained Glass Studio - out here in the far south-west of Ireland...
The good news is that it's now roofed, waterproof, floored and mostly fittted out - and is in daily use for stained / fused glass work....
However - due to some slight misunderstandings between me and the Shedman - i've ended up with a Studio without any ventilation. This is Bad News - not only as the place gets pretty warm with the Irish Sunshine (yes, really !) beating down on the large felted roof, but also because there are various processes that take place inside the studio which generate nasty fumes (soldering, some kiln-work etc)
So - any suggestions as to the best way to provide ventilation. The shed construction is 3/4" shiplap on 3x2, with 11mm OSB as the internal lining.
I think I need two types of ventilation - general 'trickle' ventilation (probably all the time) and specific 'forced' ventilation when I'm soldering.
For the trickle venting I thought about the kind of round plastic soffit vents that you'd fit into UPVC -
for the forced venting I happen to have three mains PAPST fans (6" diameter, I think) that I was going to sit 'side-by-side' above the soldering workbench - with some kind of sloping wooden 'roof' on the outside to keep the rain out.... might even fit a dimmer to give variable speed extract !
Any comments / suggestions / etc ??
Many thanks Adrian
